Hey Guys, I would like to get a spark plug cover cut. Where are you getting this done?

Also, where did you source your carbon fiber plate?

A good source is local sign companies. They usually have a water-jet cutter in house and lots of various material, even scrap for cheap sometimes (Metals, Plastics, etc). They probably won't have CF but they might be able to source it. Otherwise just look on eBay and try and find a flat sheet of 2mm thick CF large enough to cut a cover from and bring it to them to cut.

I was just in contact with the guy who founded and runs AutoExtrude a couple of days before reading your post. I was following up with him today about a custom order request I've made and relayed my concern about his possibly closing up shop soon. He told me that is not the case at all.

This was his response:

"...if you want to throw down a comment for me and let people know that I am not gone. I was going to close up shop but decided not to. I kept it open, doubled down on product development, hired a general manager and made a website... Feel free to let them know I’ll be doing more for the SC300/400 and GS300/400."

You can find his company on Facebook. I've forwarded him the link to this thread so that he and/or his general manager can respond themselves if they wish to.
