    I love making stuff out of carbon fiber. Here is an unpolished carbon plate with a US tonal metal sticker icon. It's 3 layers of 6 oz carbon and laid up with silmar 249 resin to keep from yellowing in the sun. Carbon Fiber/metal Tonal Sticker Trailer Hitch Cover - 4109883e-3c19-dec4.jpg
    Many of you have seen some of my custom stuff I have made. I still find time to make stuff every now and then Carbon Fiber/metal Tonal Sticker Trailer Hitch Cover - 4109883e-3cb0-e521.jpg

    I use to make and sell a lot of custom stuff for vehicles, but it takes so much time and the cost of carbon has risen. This stuff is just made for fun. Some stuff I have made I have molds for but other stuff is all hand made.

    The wife said it looked better polished out. So I did it instead of the matte carbon look Carbon Fiber/metal Tonal Sticker Trailer Hitch Cover - 4109883e-2f21-0ca5.jpg
