    NEW Carbon fiber engine bay V8

    I just got the carbon fiber engine bay kit from JSK racing off Alibaba.com. I need to remove the mesh they supply and transfer it, but the carbon looks incredible and the fit is great!

    25% the cost of Audi and some suppliers.

    Looks great. The Carbon engine bay certainly elevates the car & makes it feel that bit more special.
    I've purchased a few pieces from JSK & the quality has been very good as well

    Looks great Craig. Congrat's! So much better than the black plastic

    Just let me know when you're ready to add a stripe like mine. I know you are jealous ha ha

    Why did you need to remove the mesh? and did the pieces come with the cut outs for engine bay lighting? I´ve bought a lot from JSK and there CF is very very good quality.

    The holes for the lights were here and I transferred those. The mesh that comes with it looks cheap. I think it’s the backing for stucco or stone tiling spray painted black. You can see right through it to all the wires and components the panels are hiding. I’m going to take the silver stuff off the factory panel and put it on the carbon fiber.

    Thanks for the info. Craig, I´ll be changing my side panels later, but I wont need the mesh as I´ve bought a supercharger kit that includes new mesh! I am torn between JSK and Happyparts for the panels, but I hate paying the freight charges that JSK are asking now!

    But with the parts being so cheap the freight charges don’t worry me. I think I pay $400 for that.

    You would if you live here, import taxes are levied on the goods value, the freight value and the insurance!
