It's carbon fiber. It adds lightness.

...but...but... if you add too much wouldn't it negatively affect traction due decreased weight on tires? Doesn't the Federal Hiway Administration monitor these things? This could be worse than self driving vehicles! Someone needs to call 60 minutes!

Maybe I should put the carbon fiber bits on the Outpost's freebie section? :x
2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!

Here's the console reassembled and installed. Next step is to get the low center console piece installed.

**good job on the center console color job - that grey interior would look great with the door carpet, floor carpets, rear shelf and seat carpets in black - contrast will look good. they make an excellent carpet spray dye which holds very well.
i forget which product i used years ago but i sprayed red carpets to black in my volvo P1800 - it took 2 coats but as long as the carpets aren't subject to lots of sun(cabriolet)the color stays nice and true for years.

lets get this damn project moving along 8-)
