C6 A6 carbon fiber trim production…
Another new model we’ve been working on lately, the C6 A6. It is very near completion and will be sent to the customer in a week or so. I went with the standard 11oz 2×2 twill because I wanted to be sure the pieces weren’t too thick for the metal edges (more on that in a bit).
This is a pretty small set, just the 4 door pieces, a dash piece, and a large shifter piece.
The shifter piece can be taken apart. These two pieces are the sides of it.
This set is unique in that it has these metal (actually plastic) edges to each of the door pieces and the dash piece. Some of the newer Audi’s with wood trim (B8 A4 and the Q7 off the top of my head) have similar accents.
You can see here how it lines up.
They just snap into place. As I said earlier, I was worried about the fiber being too thick for the metal edges, but it turned out to be a non issue because of the correct preparation.
Just like the D3 set, this set had one piece (the shifter piece) that still needed a bit more work. It will be clearcoated next week.
