    Anyone know why they decided to make this part black instead of continuing the carbon fiber from the console?

    More importantly, who will be the first company to make this aftermarket part and can I get royalties by way of free sample? :p

    I don't think that this is a part that you could easily make in carbon fiber.

    Actually would be very easy to mold that piece- carbon fiber is able to be molded into pretty much any shape

    Yea, but that's a Ferrari, so I don't know if they would be willing to do that for a Toyota.

    the process isn't very different to laying fibreglass.

    It seems like a piece that could be relatively easily made in carbon. Who knows why they didn't.
