Default CSL OE Bumper Carbon Fiber bits

Late last summer/fall, I was lucky enough to procure an OE CSL bumper.
But with a sudden move from NYC to the southwest, I wasn't able to do much with it, and left it with my friend back east in Montreal, who works with CF
It needed new painting, etc and flippers ... And these are some pics of the items he has created for me:

Flippers:








His test fit:



He created 2 styles, exact 1:1 copy of the OE unit and one with slight angle as pictured/fitted on another members OE CSL bumper:




And he is working on a 1 piece lip. He says he still has to make a few minor changes, before he is totally happy with it. Here is a pic of his prototype:





He did say he would work on CSL diffuser molded off an OE unit.
I will ask him if he has any interest in making a CF CSL bumper and CSL trunk, both molded off an OE unit, but mind you he does this on his free time.

Any feedback is appreciated and I can pass it on


Something he worked on in the past



edit:
Pics added




































































Update 5/27

The prices for forum members he gave me for the diffuser in either 1x1 or 2x2 CF are as follows:

1-Complete CF and clear coated in either weave (for those not wanting to paint) is $550 shipped + PayPal fees

2- For people wanting to paint their diffuser, where he has the lower portion exposed and cleared coated, and the paintable surface primered (like my OE unit pictured earlier), that will be $500 shipped + PayPal fees.

Option 1 would look like this:


Option 2 would come out similar to this OE UNIT:




He knows at this price, he will price out a few unfortunately (and apologizes), but he thinks the amount of work and craftsmanship involved will speak for itself. He did stress to me he spends a lot of time on each one, and thats why he produces them slowly and did his best to make them as good or better than OE (which is $2000).

Cheaper, there is always the ebay option, which may be ok for some, but not all.
When he is more known and up and running, I am sure he will ask much more to help him survive lol

I will message you guys individually in order of who expressed any interest.

Thanks

While I prefer the look of 1x1 slightly, unfortunately my airbox is in the "peasant" 2x2, and so alas...my other cf tidbits are 2x2 to match. Mixing cf weaves would just be tacky.

Op, stuff looks pretty good! Does this "friend" have a company name, or is it a true garage effort? Do you know what process he uses?

On a side note...man, I swear, I could just stare at cf stuff all day!
