Hi all,

I'm going to try my hand at redoing my dash with carbon fiber.

There are a couple good online resources for supplies, but i was wondering if anyone knew of any good local places in los angeles?

googling returned nothing, which seems strange, so maybe someone on here knows of a place.

You won't find carbon fiber cloth on the shelf anywhere - in fact, its hard to find in any good quantity online, the aerospace industry has been hogging it for years!

Any boating store (West Marine etc) will have resin and fiberglass cloth/mat. So does home depot.

sucks. you'd think it would be readily available and manufacturers would be making it by the ton.

Oh they are! But aerospace is using it by the ton.

Here is a note about it (slightly old):
Carbon Fiber News: TAP Plastics

Which explains why most of the "carbon fiber" stuff out there is fake. Either its a CF-like laminate applied over virtually anything, or its black fiberglass (which can be quite convincing. Since I suspect you don't really need the stength/weight ratio that carbon provides, try investigating the black fiberglass.
