Hi everyone. I just purchased an after-market Carbon Fiber dash package and I'm having difficulty removing the cup holder assembly. Does anyone have experience with this? The after-market instructions say it just pulls out (with force). I've put a lot of force on it and it doesn't want to budge. The installation instructions also say the new one "clicks" into place which indicates it does have some sort of locking mechanisms, which I assume are on the "slide rails", on each side, that it slides onto? Any advice would be appreciated. I did look for any mounting screws and didn't detect any. Thanks. Jeff
I have recently had a relatively major track "off" - so looking for many replacement body parts. - no insurance cover for the damage of course :( Bumper covers, doors, fenders,bonnet, engine lid, wing etc Am interested in lightweight fibreglass (FRP) or carbon panels as substitutes for OEM parts - my car is used on the race-track a lot. Understand Carbon is more expensive - but lighter. But FRP easier to do minor repair work on from a small bump? 1 - Thoughts on OEM vs FRP vs Carbon? OEM parts fit well, are good for re-sale etc - but ARE also expensive! 2 - Recommended non-OEM body parts suppliers? - MA Shaw in USA - xtrememotorcars in USA - Revosport in HK - others? 3 - Fitting "Cup Car" style carbon doors to a car that is still used on the road - seems hard work. - Issues with locking/security, handles, mirrors, inner parts - is it just too hard/expensive &/or not practical? many thanks JB
