FS: HPF CF DME/ECU covers

So I have a few of these for sale. They don't have the HPF stickers for it. It's dry CF, so it has like a semi-gloss/matte finish to it that was hard to capture in pictures. Quality is decent. If you were to scrutinize it, you'll see flaws. But for an ECU cover, it's fine.

edit: OK so I'm now sold out of what I consider the good ones. All I have left are the bad ones. The bad ones have chips/pits in the epoxy. Some will have weave defects as well. They are small and hard to see, but some are more noticeable. I have updated the pictures below to show some examples.

The one I hand polished has all of defects on the same piece. So if you were wondering how it would looked polished even with the defects.

Price are reduced for these.


SOLD

Fitment: site says that it's for S54, but it fits on the M54 as well. We tested it on JR's car (picture below).

Here's a link to the HPF listing:
https://www.horsepowerfreaks.com/hor...150731201.html

The pictures below are of the worst quality out of the bunch (I will not be selling this).



On JR's car, we put a light polish on it to see if it would help any. So this picture is better than what you're going to get.



Examples of the defects you can expect:

So I posted this on another forum. Tried polishing it some more to see how it would look. It looks pretty good for me just half-assing it lol Basically, just an example of how it would look if you went ahead and polished it.

If I weren't so lazy, I would polish all of these and sell it for more lol
edit: finished it.

Well all the good looking ones sold out after I posted the polished one. I have updated the post for the lesser quality ones.

Watch Karate Kid (1984) for more information lol

As I stated in my other posts, I just polished it by hand. Buy polish, buy towel, hand polish, wipe off. Repeat until satisfied.
