Carbon fiber parts from Carben Fiber Creations.

Hi, my name is Tom and I've recently been in several conversations with Ben Curran, owner of CarBen Fibre Creations . Some of you might know his work from before. Some of you might hear about this guy for the first time now. For those of you that haven't seen his work before feel free to check out his work at http://www.carbenfibrecreations.co.uk/ and/or search for CarBen Fibre Creations on facebook.

As you can see on his website he supplies all sorts of carbon interior overlays for RHD MR2 MKII's, but very few items for LHD MR2 MKII. I've been waiting for Ben to change all of this and after some conversations we've come to the conclusion that if there's enough interest for LHD MR2 MKII parts, Ben will produce them for us!

All parts will be produced in 2x2 twill carbon fiber. Absolutely no vinyl or "carbon look"-plastics.

Please notice that these are overlays or covers if you will. These parts go over your existing parts and are purely for looks.

Please note that stating your interest in one or several of these carbon fiber items is not a binding purchase, it's just stating your interest in one. Ben doesn't belive in binding purchases of products that not yet exist. Once this interest list is completed we'll start new group buy threads for the purcases of these items.

First and foremost the following items will be produced if there's enough interest for them:

I've done this to maximize the chances of getting these products produced.

Please keep these threads in English in all forums so both me and Ben can read and understand them.

io da loro ho preso lo smooth panel e non monta per niente bene, ho dovuto adattarlo e il foro della serratura cade fuori asse! Dopo un lavoro di aggiustaggio e una riverniciata montava alla perfezione, non come quando è arrivato.

Are you talking about the rear panel between the lights? I have no experience with that product. I'm not in busness with Ben, I'm just a guy trying to get Ben to produce LHD interior parts for our cars.

If you have/had a problem with fitment I would suggest that you take it up with Ben here: sales@carbenfibrecreations.co.uk

CLAIMS/DAMAGED ITEMS
All claims must be made within 14 days of receipt of item, if any claim is raised after this time we will try to do our best to obtain compensation back from the courier but if this cannot be obtained we are not held responsible for refund of item.

I've now shipped some LHD dash parts to Ben in England, and he will start the production of the two main dash pieces soon.
