Carbon Fiber Tank Cover

Hello all. I was playing with some carbon fiber yesterday and started toying with the idea of a full tank cover. I think a carbon tank would look pretty good on a RC. Plus it would give added protection all around. I'm going to start on the mold for it this weekend and see how it goes. Anybody interested in one or have any input on this?

I have been searching up and down for something like this...I would definitely be interested, depending on the price.

i don't see how you could make a 1 piece tank cover and be able to install it. the bottom of the tank is quite a bit narrower than the top...

I'll get started then and keep everyone updated. I'm going to keep cost down as much as I can. I just like making other parts that no one else has tried before.

Wibbly it will either go straight down to the frame. Or it will either cut off where tank cuts in on the sides.

fair enough. it'll likely have to be the latter as the front of the tank is quite a bit wider than the frame.
