Carbon fiber has a very distinct look – industrial, textured, charcoal gray. And while some companies are experimenting with an exposed carbon fiber matte look, coating the material still plagues automakers and suppliers – especially as we try to achieve the ‘Class A Finish’ that is expected on a shiny new car.

Many companies offer “Carbon Fibre Skinning” for existing parts, and one of them is CarbonConstruction. So far the company has a lot of parts of the Saab coated into carbon fiber. See below some of their recent works with Saab 9-3 parts:
