    No worries. There are 11 pages of posts. Excited to see how yours come out. Lot of folks like the carbon fiber

    Well, here is the one that I printed up using carbon fiber media. I did not add any additional filament.

    @crewmaxlmt Looks great. The textured bed actually makes them look like they have the carbon fiber weave.:cool:

    I'll have to try printing these in some silver PETG as it might be pretty close to the same silver as the HU surround.

    The bed has a bit of buildup on it. I think that is where some of the texture comes from. The plastic actually does have carbon fiber in it, I just did not add any additional filament with the print. Not really needed as it is plenty strong as is.

    The ring I printed in silver PETG didn't come out that great, but this translucent red TPU kinda looks nice:

    Clean wheels.
    I used fine automotive sand paper then sprayed with sandable primer them sanded again. Topped with 3 coats of krylon fusion matte black paint sanding in between coats 1-2 then sprayed krylon matte clear coat over them.

    Anyone planning on printing more of these? The ones I had printed were done with PLA, and as @Swfltoyomafia warned me about, they have shrunk and lost their shape. I’d be happy to pay for material and shipping.
