I'd sure suggest you taking note to the finish. Make sure it has UV protect.
Mine look like new after 2 yrs on the car.
carbon fiber grain will come exactly as you stated /// and will be identical on both sides unless requested otherwise. I also clear coat my parts (typically 3 coats) in a 2k clear coat which has great uv stabilization and chemical resistance.

Thanks for that info. I will definitely contact him.

I love this, I am not big into putting CF covers with 3m, would much rather have the full replacement. Headed to the for sale section now, thanks.

Also is it possible for you to fabricate or mold CF door handle replacements, I have been looking but all I find is covers...

Just from my personal experience(for what it is worth)I have done a bunch of CF to my 370 and earlier,my 350Z.
I agree ,3-M covers are just faux CF. A vinyl cover. Furthermore,has no depth.
However,a well made CF cover made from high quality CF plate with a
premium coating is most cost effective.
I hate to keep giving a shout out for ZCF. But,these guys make premium covers that fit &last. In addition,the pricing is very low.
Made in the U.S. by guys that own&know the car.
Whats not to like?

In addition,the pics of the OP's replacements appear to protrude out further than stock.
Camera angle?Or,fiberglass core covered with CF making it thicker?

I am not sure what makes you say they stick out further? Here is a picture from the side. All of the parts I make are made strictly using carbon fiber no cheap fiberglass like many others.

Here are the reds available through the composites company.

The first is red mirage. The red color comes from a strand of colored copper wire that looks stunning in the sun.

The second is a more traditional carbon fiber/ kevlar hybrid which would be more vibrant.

Also another option I would be able to do is spray a red candy over top of traditional carbon fiber to give the entire part a red hue.
