Carbon Fiber source

If anyone wants some CF sheets. This seems to be a pretty good source.

Carbon Fiber

It's hard to tell, is that structural or just a covering?

I thought all CF was the same. The structural part comes from layering the CF and then bonding it with resin and heat or at least that is my under standing.

I am planning on getting a sheet and using it as a covering for a few bits and pieces.

Sweet! Wonder if that stuff is heat resistant? I've always wanted to do the ignition cover on the valve cover on my W124!

Just purchased and installed some carbon fiber door sills on my new ML...they look awesome!!!
