I had a few people show some interest in setting up a group buy on some carbon fiber interior trim a few months ago, but it never panned out. I figured I'd start a new thread and see if it can gain some traction this time.

Normal price on this trim is $800 + $700 core charge + shipping (core charge is what GM charges for a set of plastic trim that I would need to use to wrap in carbon fiber). Alternatively, you can send in your current trim to get wrapped and not have the pay the core charge.

If we can find 5 buyers, I can knock off $100 from the price and do free shipping.

IF we can find 10 buyers, I can knock off $200 from the price and do free shipping and do a free fabric of your choice upgrade.

Shoot me an email at matt@ocarbon.com if you're interested or if you have any questions.


Pieces included: 4 door pieces, 3 dash pieces, 2 pieces on the sides of the shifter.

Long thread on how I make these pieces:

Let me say this now(and sorry for stepping on your toes).

If anyone is sending in midnight sapele trim for a sedan/wagon, LET ME KNOW!!!

I will remove my trim and send it in for you, saving a midnight sapele trim and saving you the core charge. I have the generic kinda, sorta carbon fiber stock trim.

No one will miss that...

I love the way this stuff looks but I can't see doing it without doing the center bezel and tunnel/cupholder pieces. The fake CF from Caddy at least doesn't get scratched and crappy like the piano black stuff does.

i'm pretty sure oCarbon can do the center stack also, but it costs a lot more due to the extra work

We can do those parts as well, but it doubles the price. The core charge also goes up considerably because GM won't sell me the plastic radio surround piece without all the controls as well.

Seems like there are a lot of people interested, but everyone is waiting until we hit 10 buyers. If you're ready to order or on the fence, just hit me up now and I'll go ahead and start giving the discounted pricing.

Make sure no one gives you Midnight Sapele!

I would like to have this done for the non saple wood black pieces in my 2012 Coupe. The issue is I would want everything (including the pieces in the steering wheel, shifter, door release buttons and rear center console) done and preferably in silver. Is that possible?

We could, but it would be expensive, especially if you want to keep the current trim in your car while we work on the pieces (they aren't cheap from GM and finding suitable used cores has been difficult). Email me at matt@ocarbon.com with a full list of the parts you want and I can get you a quote.

Matt, if you want to start a list of 10 people I will be the first. If we can get the 200 bucks off discount I am in for sure.

Unfortunately I don't think we'll be able to get 10 people. I could offer $100 off without needing other buyers, but thats as low as I can go.

For what parts?

Doors, 3 dash, 2 on left and right of shifter. Basically replacing the OEM plastic "carbon fiber" pieces.
