Yeah there is Echidna however I had to wait for 2months for some parts (diff bracket and pedal bits) that never turned up, got my money back through paypal and bought them from 3ge instead.
Not actually mentioned it before and he may be better now but I personally wouldn't buy from him again.

think he has stung a few on lcb too so it may be best to steer clear. he posted some of his designs up here in the past. after seeing the finishd product i wouldnt buy his parts but thats just me. i have also heard that his carbon products are shocking although i havent seen anything to back that up.

hi guys, i will be doing all the body work on my roadster myself & when i started my build i thought for sure i´ll do everything in carbon fiber but then reality hit me finaly when i started doing the math so now i´m happy if i do the mudguars ,dash & transmition tunle in carbon & i think it would look great & by the way i saw some nice carbon body work parts that one could buy on caterhams website.
cheers
Samy

I'm doing a few bits in it, will be vacuum bagged as I have the pump.

It's pricey stuff but I love the look of it.

I'll be buying old cycle wings/nosecone to make the moulds.

Edit - the guy advertising the carbon in the initial post hasn't posted since 10 August, 2007.
