Default Custom 2008-2014 WRX/STI Fender Ornaments

Hey fellow NASIOC members!

I just wanted to take the time to give a shout-out to Mike from customcarbonandvinyl.com for taking the time to make these custom WRX Fender Ornaments for me!









Like most of you, I was tired of waiting around for someone to finally make these in carbon fiber with the WRX logo. Luckily, after looking around on eBay a bit I found mike1991gl. Mike is just starting a new company (website not finished yet) called Custom Carbon and Vinyl. As you can guess from the name, he specializes in custom carbon fiber work as well as vinyl stickers, banners and overlays.

After seeing some of the products that he has already sold on eBay, I asked him to make me a pair of his custom ornaments with the WRX logo in the same SWP color to match my car. (Going for a Storm Trooper theme)

Anyway, I didn't want to have such an amazing product made for me and not share the knowledge on NASIOC.

Mike can make these in traditional CF with either the WRX or STI logo in any color you prefer. After getting these the other day, I wanted to do him a favor and give him a shout-out on here so fellow members could take a look and perhaps place an order of their own.

I apologize if the photos are bad... I only have my camera phone.

Anyway, Mike asked me to direct people to his eBay account and send him a PM to mike1991gl if anyone is interested in a pair. Otherwise, he said that he should have his website done soon.

So everyone knows, they also come with the 3M double sided automotive strength tape on the back for easy install. To have these made only cost me $46.98 delivered.

Hopefully I will find time to get these on my car tomorrow.

Thanks for looking everyone! (my first thread).

For reference, here is Mikes eBay profile link if anyone would like to send him a PM or check out his other products!

Hey guys! Sorry it took me so long to post some install pics! It has been raining here for the past couple of days. I just snapped a few photos with my cell phone in the garage. They look great installed! I had a member PM me saying that he already put an order in with Mike.

I have applied for official vendor status but have not heard from the owners of these forums yet. I am an Enthusiast just like the rest of the members here. I'm not trying to get rich making these, just trying to help others out that want that custom touch on their car. I was in the same boat as everyone else trying to find non oem carbon fiber parts for my car. All the parts I made for my own car are red/black carbon fiber/kevlar hybrid. When I get my vendor status I will have a list of parts that will be available. Please keep in mind I am a single person making all these parts. Sometimes the wait can be upwards of 3 weeks. It is worth the wait though. I am working on a radiator cover similar to perrin's, door sill inserts, front and rear badges 2010+, I have done some other badges for other customers. They sent me their stock ones for me to make molds from. I can recreate just about anything from a stock part. I am also working on a dash mount gauge holder that will not require removing or blocking the stock clock. Please do NOT ask to order anything in this thread or any others until I am an official vendor. I am a member on a lot of forums and follow their rules they have set. Thanks for your patience and assistance in this matter. You can contact me through ebay.

Thanks,
Mike

customcarbonandvinyl- Have you thought about making some CF interior pieces for 08+? For example: door cards, passenger dash, center console surround, shifter surround, etc?

I would love to have some more options orther than cheap CF vinyl or plastidip

I am working on some interior parts.... being one person it takes some time. Ironing out the bugs in making the molds.... resin amounts etc.... Locating stock parts to make molds out of as well. Not to many subies in the boneyards.

I will be switching to the new 08+ WRX lettering with all new sets made. Several customers have asked for that style.

Someone asked about what blue looks like. These are for a current customer.With the newer style logo. Someone from here is waiting for these. Couple more days and they will be done. The red/black are for my car, I currently have a plain set of red/black on it. The center badge is for the trunk of an 08+ sedan for a customer, and the silver stars is for a 02 - 05 front badge for a customer.

Yeah! No problem! The weather has just been shotty here for the past couple of days, but I will try to find some time to get the car out of the garage and take some pics tomorrow or over the weekend. Thanks again Mike for making these! I'd definitely be interested in some rear WRX badges in CF when they become available!
