    Carbon Fiber Dipped Interior Parts on my G8

    I sent a bunch of my G8 parts off to 3D Liquid Graphics in Indiana. They were able to match paint. Very professional group. Quick turn around! High quality. If anyone was thinking about using them, just look below and judge for yourself. They did great work with the Hydrographic dipped parts. High quality, and great finish. They have a little dust residue on them but they are perfect in person. Some parts are the matching 39U Stryker Blue, while others are black. Both have the silver carbon fiber print and smooth as silk clear coat on top so it should hold up for years to come! The newer Hydrographics process gives so much more depth then the way this use to be done.

    If you have any questions, let me know. I think it looks great, some might think too much blue, some may not like the pattern. I think it made the car look amazing. Cleaned up the interior, making it less drab and boring. Now I do know this will not be for everyone, but it was something I wanted to do, and think it was worth it. This looks a lot better in person.

    I did find it is hard as hell to photograph the entire dash in one shot, the reason the doors are open. I have my blue LED strips on in a few shots. Again, may not be your taste, but they are tastefully installed (and with the entire dash apart, they are properly run and tied into the wire looms) and have a toggle switch for each section. I would like feedback though. I think the transition between blue to black is amazing.

    I have tired the Di-Noc CF print, and it does not even compare to this. The fit and finish is amazing. I did not have to sand down or grind anything for the parts to piece back together. Which shows how well they applied the paint and the clear coat, allowing things like the tight fitting air vents to fit right back in place.

    Enjoy the shots! And sorry, the car is not up to par with my cleaning standards. I just wanted to get the shots taken ASAP while it was light out as well.

    Where are they located in Indiana? It looks like they did a very nice job. Be sure to post some pictures of these installed in your car.

    I have more pics. it is making a moderator approve it before it posts up. Pierceton IN. Just west of Fort Wayne. I would think Like 3-3.5 hours from you. They did amazing work. If a mod ever approves the additional pics, you can see the quality work that they did. The color match is perfect, and the newer process they use is so far ahead of the old process.

    To get numbers, you have to base it off of square inches. You measure the length x height x $0.35 cents. Most places run .75 cents or more so these guys are working out a killer deal.

    They are really close to me then. I just go to school in Bloomington but am from South Bend and my parents have a lake place near Warsaw, IN and I see the signs for Pierceton all the time.

    I am assuming those are LEDs on the door panels? If so, I'd love to see a night shot of the interior with those lit.

    I would think very close actually. You could save on shipping! lol. That was $60 for me.

    Just tell them Adam or the guy with the blue G8 sent you and they will work you out the same deal. $0.35 cents a sq inch. It ran me about $600 in total to have the interior, parts around the trunk, tail lights, and some under hood stuff done. Not too bad. Thos black strips that seperate the top half of the dash from the bottom were 1"x15"x.35 made them under $6.00 each.

    Not too bad since it is primed, painted, dipped, cleared. Which has to be done over days not hours.

    Yeah, I ran LEDs through the door skin, in the car. A few accent lights as well. Here is the outcome at night.


    Lights on, flash on
