Default Ti door cards

Looking to re-create the factory door cards. Already at the mold builder and I'm trying to get an idea if there is enough of a demand for replacement cards vs. the cost. Will be copies of originals and made from fiberglass. Will have to reuse door handle and clip pegs for install. Possibility of carbon fiber first layer but still waiting for details. Any feedback is appreciated!

Yeah- integrate torx buttonhead stainless fasteners and make the majority of the card carbon. Leather for the insert that is usually cloth.

If you can get a carbon weave like the 95 lightweight I'd be interested in a set of them!

Are you doing rears too? How about a carbon shift console?

I was worried about those pegs! Will see what the shop says about the door cards and then decide on the viability of reproducing them. If it happens I will also do the rears. Will look into other carbon pieces as well as I want them too

reproduce the pegs and you would probably have a decent market.
