Carbon fiber parts?

Postby CarlosNX » 12 Dec 2016 15:50

Posting in here to see if anyone knows or deals with a local company to get custom carbon fiber parts made. I'm looking to have some carbon fiber parts made for my car. Local contacts preferred before I look across the border. Thanks in advance.

Wasn't Dave no longer making composite body parts?

He did stop because I believe his builder wasn't doing such a good job and Dave was looking for another. But don't quote me, I have been know to be wrong DOH!!

I don't think Dave at Futofab ever made his own CF stuff. If you mean Dave Pare Composites in Sacramento, He passed away in 2014. He was actually murdered by his assistant.

Dave had CF body panels on offer. Same molds and processes for FG as CF, just a matter of money. Pare seemed more about the trimier bits of the car (door sills, dash pad top, cowl vent, etc.).
