I am trying to convert my empty din slot into a switch panel, and I wanted to know how hard it is to apply carbon fiber? Any links on websites on how to do it?

I figured carbon fiber would look better than having the switches in my dash.

Any other ideas on what to use instead?

Cut a pice of sheet metal to the size of the DIN and mount it in there.

Cut holes for gauges and or switched. Then paint it with some matte black to match the trim. You could even get it powder coated, something that small they could toss in with a large job would probably only cost you a few bucks.

I usually make all of my switch panels from polished aluminum. If the member pages were up and running, I would post a picture here.

Ummm...Just because something is carbon fiber doesn't make it rice. Airplanes have tons of it...does that make them rice too?
