    Carbon Lip

    Does anyone know a place where I can get this repaired? Are Galway Carbon able to make mouldings? Would like some back-up copy’s incase I hit it.

    If your going to be making copies would it be better to just get them done in fibreglass or something...in case you hit them too lol

    Heard of these guys before..

    http://www.shadowcreations.ie/fiberg...d-casting.html

    Wouldn't know much about them though.



    I'd say have one carbon one for club events and such, and copies for everyday driving. That's what I would do lol
    not such a big deal to break a carbon copy uno

    Wouldn't be economical to repair properly

    Smashed a chargespeed one I had on my red hawk many years ago .fibreglass repair to underside and painted to match car .

    Probably easiest way to preserve the carbon look is to do a carbon water transfer

    Might as well use Grp or Abs rather than Fiberglass imho. Similar costs.

    You like fiberglass way too much Eoin

    Be un economical for 2/3 copies for a place to make mouldings for... id say you want 30/40 copies at least , or a big walletlol

    3D printing would be much cheaper, get it hydrodipped in carbon

    A new copy like the HT Autos type of lips would be nice and save the good one for shows. Will look into 3D printing.
