Default Radio Question

Hello All,
Will mounting a receiver, ECU, fuel pump, etc. on a real carbon fiber plate cause those units to not operate properly. Thanks guys. Chic

If you like the C/F look , purchase some of the polyester carbon fiber look plate - available at DW

Make it look like carbon fiber by painting it.

This uses the non slip stuff you put in tool boxes or cabinets.

Thanks Guys, appreciate the advice. Using some film like monokote to simulate the c/f look. Came out very nice with the same effect. Chic
