Hell, some think the pattern stuff is actually what carbon fiber truly is!


No I've seen real carbon fiber next to the dip carbon fiber. The pattern and weave of real carbon fiber is different and Fricken awesome! Haha

Anyway - that said, I ordered the CF dual gauge bezel. lol

Finally wrapped up the brake install this morning.

I'm about to head out for a little test drive & to bed the brakes in - so I figured I would post another picture of the Mach in case it's the last one! lol

Looks like you might have cost me another $189! lol
Send the other one my way
