Found this for a great price on Ebay, the quality is unbelieveable. It looks like real Carbon Fiber and it came with awesome install instructions. The seller who makes these is tfbdesigns. Check it out:

nice. whered you get that red ford emblem?
I bought those from the same seller on Ebay, tfbdesigns. The Red Emblem decals come in a set of three to fit all of the emblems on the Focus.

you scared me for a second.
I was like "Oh no! someone done it before me"

Now to put this 10 feet of c/f to some use.

I've used the same decals for my door pillar trim, not bad stuff, But I perfer the real thing.

there's no substitute that can replicate that awesome effect of millions fibers reflecting light in different directions.

I prefer Real Carbon Fiber as well but there is no Carbon Fiber hatch trim for the Focus. This is a major improvement over the black plastic in my opinion.

since we are on the same subject?
Would you purchase a real carbon hatch trim (with return of yours)
for say $120?

Just trying to get a feel for focus owner interests and the market...

would it be a complete replacement or jsut the stock piece with carbon fiber layed over it? im assuming since you want a core back, that its just laid over the stock piece. which isnt a problem, youre not gonna gain anyhting from replacing it with a full CF piece, and it doesnt require making a mold... which should bring down the price. of course with carbon fiber prices these days (if you can get the stuff), $120 seems reasonable... but at the same time, i would _assume_ prices on these would reduce after the shortage is over.

also, do you have a source for carbon fiber cloth? i know theres a world wide shortage ATM thanks to our buddies at boeing, air bus and some ship builder that does navy ships buying almost every last square yard of the stuff on the planet... makers of CF cant keep up. i know theres a couple places that have a limited supply, but the price is really high on the stuff, almost tripple what it usually is (about $25/yard or so, depending on where you go, i used to know guys who could get it to me for about $19/yard - not pre impregnated stuff, just raw carbon fiber cloth).
