You could use body filler to modify the parts, then lay CF over them when you've got them the way you want. If you decide to make a mold, these guys also have vids on how to do that with out vacuum bagging. If you do end up doing it, post up pics of the results! That would be cool to see.

from what ive heard its the laying of the actual carbon fibers which is hard, even harder to get it aesthetically correct. I know a majority of the CF s2000 hardtops were just carbon wrapped on the outside. I will be trying out wrapping pieces once i start to makeover my interior.
Yea..I don't like the wrap idea...But I am not getting or finding the answers I need on mold making materials. I don't want to do a glass lay up I was hoping fro something like plaster where I could Just pour it and get a one and done mold out of it no luck figuring that out yet so maybe this is just another failed idea.

IMO your gonna have to make a fiberglass mold with a gel coat finish. If properly prepared your mold should have a mirror like finish making it non pourous and your parts should literally fly outta the mold with little effort. However, if mold making were easy... all of us would be doing it. Honestly, its something you gotta love!
