    Default New interior on the cheap

    I have a superlite and a year ago decided to make it a little more aesthetically pleasing to drive around town in.
    I wanted a carbon fiber interior but getting and paying for the Carterham ones was out of the question so I opted for an ABS sheet with a Carbon Fiber finish.
    The original attempt looked OK but the sheet was way to thick and heavy so this time I opted for an .040 ultra lite sheet.

    The drivers side bow was looking well beat up so I checked the cost of the Ultimate Carbon ones
    And then Caterham ones

    I am well pleased with the way these came out and basically free.

    If the carbon matched a little better, it would be a tempting option.

    Don't forget there is always a vinyl option and the carbon matches much better

    I've been looking to fab some black rear wing protectors and I think ABS might be a great solution - thanks! Do you think the 0.04 thickness would work OK in this application?

    But check Fleabay I think you will find a better match

    The .040 will work great for the wing protectors
