Another dealer wonīt happen,that I am sure of. There are different grades of carbonfiber.If you order a component in carbon just to save weight and plan to paint it,then the weave doesnīt have to be perfect.The epoxy used is what gives the carbonfiber its stability.The reason Iīm saying this is,if the part is only supposed to be light and the fibers wonīt be seen,then it takes much less time to fabricate and a different,not so compact weave can be used that is easier and cheaper to get.For the "high quality" carbon you pay more and there are only 2 or 3 manufacturers in the world that produce aviation grade carbon fiber and itīs not always readily available.
