finally got hydrocoated pieces back

Its been a while since ive posted, unfortunately ive been in hospital since first week of december and got out hospital about a week ago. anyway heres some pieces i had hydrocoated before i got sick, got chance to pickup today.
No its not maverick man but overall I like the quality. Also I made the speedo bezel gauge, turned out nicer than what I imagined, first time working with fiberglass also. thanks for looking

Not the biggest fan of carbon fiber bits, but they don't look bad. However the speedo gauge looks great!



Also you need to take a wet rag to the interior of your car!

Colors look good, but honestly if my stuff came out like that I'd make them do it again. A real good quality shop would not have laid it out like that. In these two pictures you can see the ink really got stretched and deformed, especially on the right sides. That bezel would bug the shit out of me, seeing it right in front of my face every time I drive the car. That whole thing needs to be re-done

It is very hard to a big radiused part or in a deep pocket, but on pieces like this, that should not have happened

I guess I am just much more fussy than most people, because I would not have accepted those parts looking like that, but as long as you are happy, that's all that matters

Great work on your gage pod though!! Maybe your dipper should take quality lessons from you?

I have to agree, the waves would bug the shit out of me too.

that water transfer is too way too grey not even close to real CF. but if the OP is happy that is all that counts.

Pics of gauge bezel installed?

I kind of like the shifter/brake handles in factory silver, but I don't follow the "show" stuff enough to know what is hot vs not.

I think you did enough that it doesn't just look like an idea, but a plan.

Not a fan. Why spend $200+ on something fake? Not my cup of tea.

Hope you like it more than the real stuff.
