    In the picture @ the top of the page the carbon fibre centre piece is very glossy, now although not a good picture mine is a matte finish,is there a variant in these or is mine in need of something to correct the look, if so is it a case of lacquer or does it need a special resin?

    Mine has a matte finish to it too I think that is the way they are meant to be not glossy 👍

      Standard finish is the matte finish you describe i believe.

        As above the standard finish is matte but I think it was streamline carbon that also made them and they may have had a gloss finish.

          All the production run cars were supplied with the matte finish carbon including Fords 0001 Heritage car.

          The image in the header was taken from a Press Image which is at the top of one of the 8 double sided information and spec inserts from the brochure pack. The image first appeared in the March 2001 edition so was published over a year before the cars started production. Maybe FMC intended to have them fitted with the gloss but then decided to change the spec?

            Spot on Poynter, was Streamline Carbon that produced them in a gloss finish.

                Paul the Matte carbon is the original ones supplied from new and they do have a slightly yellow tinge to them.
