    oCarbon.com - CTS-V carbon fiber interior trim production




    oCarbon.com | 623.239.1500 | Glendale, AZ | matt@oCarbon.com| blog | facebook | twitter


    Hey Guys,

    This is my first real post on Cadillac Forums as a vendor, so I figured I'd spend a few moments giving a little bit of information about what we do over here at oCarbon. For the last few years we've been manufacturing carbon fiber trim for various high end European cars, mostly Audis, with a few Porsches and BMWs in between.

    What we do is take an original part, like the trim for example, and wrap it in real carbon fiber (none of that fake 3M vinyl sticker stuff over here), apply epoxy, sand it smooth, clearcoat it, and buff it to a gloss. We like to use an OEM part to ensure an OEM fit by maintaining all the original tabs and clips. It also keeps the costs manageable by not having a full replacement carbon part.

    We focus mainly on interior trim, but have branched out into other parts like b-pillars and mirror caps and things of that nature. If you guys have ideas for parts you'd like to see, feel free to ask me and I'll see what I can do. For now though, I'm going to focus on doing a few sets of interior trim and getting those perfect.

    I haven't finalized pricing for the CTS-V trim, but I'm going to make a few sets at a discounted price of $800 while I get final pricing sorted. I'd like to do these sets in a few different fabrics and finishes and get some good installed pictures for my website. I'd expect the price to be $1000-1200 in the future. We don't have any extra CTS-V sets of core trim to wrap yet, so you would have to send us your trim to make the parts. In the future, if we are able to get some extra sets of core trim, we'd be able to make a set for you while you keep your trim if you provide a core deposit.

    If you're interested in having a set made, feel free to email me at matt@ocarbon.com with any questions you've got or to setup an order.

    You can also check us out on Facebook as well, and follow all of our custom pieces: http://www.facebook.com/ocarbon

    We've already done one CTS-V set for a former Audi customer of mine (which you can check out here) but I figure it would be cool for you guys to see how we make a set of trim from start to finish.

    Check out the full writeup in our blog:
    CTS-V Carbon Fiber Trim Production - Part 1










    That's just the start of the set. I'll get some epoxy on these parts in the next few days and they'll really start to come together. I'll be sure to post future updates in this thread.

    Looking forward to making more CTS-V parts!

    You might want to consider carrying a yellow that will match the interior center of the seats for the new Coupes. Cecil...........

    Just hit me up before you do. We aren't really setup for drop ins and if you come by unannounced we might not hear you in the back.

    We have made quite a few in yellow, and since every set we make is made to order, we can do it in whatever color/fabric the customer wants.

    I should have some installed pictures of the first CTS-V set in a few days.

    I'm looking into this, they are all plastic so hopefully the base set isn't too expensive.

    Razor - what, (if any), product did you use to keep the black plastic looking so good? I think it really looks great with the CF trim!
