Anyone have any experience with hydro dipping? Thinking about getting a Vararam CAI dipped in Carbon Fibre. Wondering how durable it is and cost. Does it look good or fake. CORSA makes a nice real Carbon Fibre one but I am told it is not as good as Vararam for performance plus it 895.00!

Thanks

Yes, I had it done to my stock air box on my Challenger. It looked too plain just in black and I opted for a brushed aluminum look. They could not do all of the small areas around the bottom so I had it painted instead. I think it cost me over $300 or something like that. It was expensive but it took a lot of work to get it the way I wanted.

Nice work. What was the trick to getting the "brushed" aluminum look?
