Default Carbon fiber and kevlar side scuttles from AE Carbon

I am very excited to post this because I was the first to test out AECarbon's new CF/kevlar scuttles and that was quite an honor

These scuttles are made by George at AECarbon.com, who does some great work. The site is http://aecarbon.com/

Note, these are MOCK UPS, not mounted with adhesive, that's why they don't fit flush.

On to the pics!

Carbon fiber scuttles:

The back. These adhere using 3m adhesive tape, but I've heard of other people using silicone or epoxies as well.

Mock-up on my CR/B Clubman! They look MUCH better than those stock chrome ones

And the newest product: Carbon fiber and red Kevlar. George says several other colors can be available for custom order.

Look INCREDIBLE, don't you think?

As you can see, the fit and finish are great, and the weave looks incredible.

AECarbon also makes headlight rings (power and non power) and door handles (convenience and none).

Another great feature is the forum he has on his site where you can request more parts, and if there's a market for it, AE can make it! I've already discussed a heat shield solution with him, for our wonderful R56 turbo woes. Forum address: http://www.aecarbon.com/forum/

I did some searching online before buying these, and AECarbon has built quite a reputation among the domestic crowd, and the quality speaks for itself here. Incredible customer service too- something I'm not used to after dealing with Honda aftermarket suppliers

Feel free to ask me any questions about them!

No error, that's why I wrote 'mock up' on there instead of 'installed'. They're just laying on the scuttle with no adhesive.

I don't have two sets of scuttle inserts laying around!

I mounted the cf/red set on my car with absolutely no fitment issues after this shoot.
