Carbon fiber dash dress up

Im looking for something similar to this



See the carbon fiber panel. My panel is a plastic POS that is ugly and scratched. Anyone know where to find them?Is it possible to get some plastic material with carbon fiber texture on it to cut one.

I made an aluminium panel to the same profile as the original plastic one to fit different switches and LEDs but I don't see why you couldn't cover the original plastic or new ally panel in CF sticky sheet that available from most car dress up suppliers. You could of course do it in real CF!

Very nice!! I would love to do something like that for my 71' Super. Are the panels easy to cut?

Check out Dragonplate composites.

I'm sure this is what you want - Carbon fiber veneer:
