  • Just what I need....... MORE Carbon Fiber

    Time for a little more carbon fiber additions........ my frunk was lacking . Here's today's latest. There is more to come to finish off the frunk in the next couple weeks.

    The Torch red pinstripe and Text are painted on, then the panels were clear coated.

    Lawson the owner of Hydrodypz in Georgia did an outstanding work on these. The quality is excellent. Happy customer.

      That looks very nice. Same except you have the nice enhancement of your red edge striping, as what Steve Garrett and I got from American Hydrocarbon (only made a couple) before they went out of business. Yours looks great Strake!

      For those interested in creating a customized frunk storage cover as i did below, or even buying one of their stock ones (has several really nice variations), please go to: https://amtcustomdesigns.com/shop/

      Great folks to work with and their quality is excellent.

          John I really admire all your Carbon Fiber accessories and all the autographs signatures. ๐Ÿ˜

          Looks like you have just about everyone that is in the know with Chevrolet and Corvettes signing your Frunk area! ๐Ÿคฉโ€‹

            Fun; fun. On Corvette Blvd during its reveal time, word spread among the team and they came over to find our car to sign it.

            On the display area for the engine bay, on our HTCโ€™s vertical piece when in service position, have also the signatures of Chuck Valentini (BGA Body and Paint Manager), Rachel Bagshaw (BGA Communications Manager), Brandon Clemens (our LT6 engine builder) and Kai.

            Happy to also have some special non Corvette team folks to also sign the frunk storage cover, e.g. Mike Furman, Wes Wong (FBI Special Agent in charge of the 911 site and NCM past Board member), some other board members, and a few other Corvette community leaders. Car was in the right place at the right time (during the Bash).

            Those three triangles customer boards above again come from AMT Custom Designs โ€” and they also have several variations right. I would contact them at either: https://amtcustomdesigns.com/shop/ or call them at 844.227.0800. Harley is just one of their team who is fun and so capable to work with.

              It looks fantastic Strake. I could well have my local dipping place do likewise for my Stingray.

                The manufacturer only made a couple of sets with the painted red pinstriped edge and text and realized that it wasn't marketable at what his cost was doing so. He has an ad on eBay for plain ones without the stripes or text and offers decals in all car colors for the text as an option. He offers those for $999 plus shipping. As I inquired about getting a set and asked about RED text decals he mentioned that he had this one set left with the hand painted pinstripes and text and made me attractive offer which I took.

                He does not have a core charge either.

                Not sure if he would make more with the hand painted stripes and text. You can always ask......

                Here's his eBay ad for the plain ones:

                  Thanks much Strake. Hopefully a MECF vendor will add this to their products now that AMH is gone.

                    Strake please keep adding more. Yes it costs me money much of the time you come up with something new but you are leading in the carbon fiber area. Good luck finding more and more for us too.

                      My wife said earlier this evening, "we should get a carbon fiber removable roof panel"....... I told her that they were a GM option ..... in my case, could have gotten one with the Red sides, and the 3LT Red stitching on the underside.

                      I will take that as the Green light to start hunting one up....... if anyone knows of one that someone is willing to ship, please let me know !!!!! Can't miss this opportunity.
