I prefer to get into things asap while eating my raw bat soup!
I've got to laugh because I've trodden this horrible path so often... And even quite recently. Just last week I contacted about 6 car restoration businesses... Not one got back to me. Obviously between job keeper payments and various other stimulus packages it's more lucrative to not work.Australia is generally an awful place to get anything done above a quality of 0/10. I contacted about half a dozen places that said they did CF work nationally and only one of them got back to me. If a business doesn't care enough to at least respond they're not going to try and do it properly even if I do get hold of them. It is wasted time and money. That is a long way of saying 'I didn't try hard but the first warning sign is that you need to try hard'.
How's your progress with the CF seats going?I reckon if I was going to pick a budget option I'd go with hydrodipping. You can do some really unusual shapes and parts with it, but you need to find someone with a lot of skill because it needs a lot finishing work.

Which currency is that? But yeah man, I agree that seems like a good pricing for a fair bit of work.How's your progress with the CF seats going?
Received a quote from a pretty reputable mob for hydro dipping various parts. As you can see, each seat back is $154, which actually seems a pretty fair price to me.
As you've already pointed out though... Removing the sticky gunk will be as much fun as being stabbed in the eye...

They're with the manufacturer, they're making the moulds at the moment! It is a slow process, this whole life thing....
