Monterey Car Week through the eyes of MAcarbon

MAcarbon had an extremely busy, but good Monterey Car Week this year. We had booths at 5 events this year and attended a few others. We started the “week” off by attending the Pre-Reunion races at Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. This is an awesome event and it’s very low key. There aren’t any crowds, the cars are amazing and it’s only $25. If you don’t want to pay you can watch the races from the “Cork Screw” for free.

The next event was ‘Concours on the Avenue’ in Carmel-by-the-Sea. This is a free concours event on the main drag of Carmel and most importantly…it’s free. There is always a very eclectic group of cars here and it is a must see.

Friday was the ‘Werks Reunion’ Porsche Club of America show and we had a tent displaying our carbon parts. This show is a must for all you Porschephiles, and the coral is probably more impressive than the show itself.

A couple of us left ‘Werks Reunion’ and headed over to Monterey for the inaugural ‘Exotics on Canary Row’. This was the first year for this show, but you would never know it by the amount of people and cars in attendance. We had our booth set up overlooking the picturesque Monterey Bay, and we brought along two of our customer’s cars (Ferrari 360 Spider and Audi R8 V10 Coupe). Next to us was one of 3 or 4 McLaren P1’s. Also in attendance were a few Porsche 918’s, a couple Ferrari F50’s, a Pagani Huayra, a few Ferrari La Ferrari’s and a Mercedes CLK GTR…just to name a few. This is sure to become one of the more popular events during ‘Monterey Car Week’ in the years to come.

On Saturday evening we had our parts on display at the ‘Serata Italiana’, held by our friends at the Lamborghini Club America. This was our 6th year sponsoring this event and it’s always a blast. Our table of parts was in set up in a beautiful court yard full of stunning Lamborghini’s including the prototype ‘Asterion’ hybrid and the new Aventador SV Roadster.

When most of the events in Monterey were winding down, the Ferrari Club of America national meet was just getting started. On Sunday evening we had a booth at the Hyatt in Carmel for the national meet and had a great time talking to our old and new customers.
Monday was the Ferrari Club Concours, where we had a tent displaying our products. This was a really nice event with a great mix of Ferraris new and old.

Monterey Car Week

August is right around the corner and we sure have a busy schedule ahead of us. Monterey Car week is one of our most exciting and hectic times of the year for us. We get to get out of the office to look at some wonderful cars and mingle with the car community. This year, we will be attending four events as a vendor (even though some of the team will attend more than just those events).

We start off on Friday, August 14th, with the Werks Reunion hosted by the Porsche Club of America. This event will be held at the Rancho Canada Golf Club from 7am to 4pm. Immediately following this event, we will be moving to Cannery Row to participate in Exotics on Cannery Row. That event will be held from 4pm to 8pm. Sunday the 16th and Monday the 17th, we will be attending the Mercato di Ferrari at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and at the Concours d-Elegance at the Nicklaus Club hosted by the Ferrari Club of America.

Some of the events at Monterey Car Week are free of charge, so if you are in the area, come say hello and also check out the wide variety of events going on. For more information, you can visit www.montereycarweek.com/Events.html for a full schedule of what is happening when in Monterey. If you wish to attend the FCA events, you can check http://www.fca2015.org/ for information.

The MAcarbon Quality

At MAcarbon, we make parts that we are proud of and pride making a quality product that looks as good or better than OEM.

That final 10%: The thing that makes us stand out from the rest, is our attention to detail…that final 10%. We use the best carbon fiber available at any price and lay it down with as little distortion as possible. We always match the OEM carbon patterns and we pay close attention to the direction of the carbon pattern, the finish and overall look of the part. After several layers of clear and sanding we always do a final ‘color sand’ making the parts smooth and free of any ‘orange peel’.

 

Lamborghini Gallardo Air Vents (Second set ever) and Map Light

 

 

We make parts that stand the test of time and never look aftermarket. In late 2005, We made this set of vents and map light. The vents are actually the second set we had ever made for a Gallardo (the weave is in the wrong direction, because we made these before Lamborghini offered carbon for the Gallardo). Even though these parts have been installed and used for some time, they are still in perfect condition.

Our products are made to last – with quality second to none, and nothing motivates us more than a happy customer.

Diablo 6.0 Blue Carbon

SONY DSC

For the last 10 years, we have been asked if we could do carbon pieces for the Diablo 6.0.  We could, but the problem was that the 6.0 used a unique to Lamborghini twill carbon with a blue Kevlar thread.   Since we had no way to match that, we had to inform the customer that the pieces wouldn’t match.  Recently, a customer put us in touch with a company that had had a roll made to match the mythical blue carbon.  They were gracious enough to sell us part of the roll. So we now have the Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 Blue Carbon Trim Available! We have already done the first car and are working on a second project now.  This weave is truly unique. With it, you can now upgrade many of the plastic parts in the 6.0 to carbon.

Lamborghini Diablo SE30 Console Restoration

Lamborghini-Diablo_SE30_mp28_pic_61150

Lamborghini has always been an icon in the automotive industry. Ever since Ferruccio decided that he no longer wanted to make tractors, he had created a legendary brand. He decided to get into making cars as a result of frustrations he had with a Ferrari he had purchased which ultimately resulted in him being insulted by Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the famed Ferrari brand car company.

In June 1985, Automobili Lamborghini decided it was time to start thinking about a replacement for their legendary Countach; it would take the Lamborghini development team another five years to complete the new super car, the Diablo. Of all the Lamborghinis ever built, a case can be made that the Diablo holds a unique place in the heart of the company and its fans.

A customer gave us a call and said he had bought himself a SE30 Diablo and asked if we could help him out. Now the SE30 Diablo is not just a Diablo. The Diablo SE30 was introduced in 1994 as a limited-production special model to commemorate the company’s 30th anniversary. The car was designed largely as a street-legal race vehicle that was lighter and more powerful than the standard Diablo. There were only 150 made worldwide. This was one of the first cars where manufacturers began using exposed carbon pieces  so you can imagine after 20 or so years, the quality and finish deteriorated.

We received the center console from the Diablo (pictured above). The finish had already largely flaked off and the customer had picked off what he could. We sanded the console down to get rid of any remaining finish. The delicate work was around the switch recesses. Once all the old finish had been removed, we then sprayed it with clear. Unlike most carbon pieces that have a gloss or matte finish, this one needed a satin finish. With satin parts, you cannot sand or polish after you have applied the clear. This carbon console is now ready to be reinstalled and showcased.

Cars and Coffee at Canepa Design 5-10-2014

The 2nd Cars and Coffee of the year at Canepa Design was just as big as the first. This Cars and Coffee has really become a popular even compared to the previous couple years…as it should be. Beyond the normal people and there cars are the 100 or so cars housed by Canepa. Some of the cars are in the middle of restoration, for sale and there are about 25 that are housed in the motorsports museum upstairs. It is awesome to have the freedom to walk around the entire facility and look at everything. Not to be outdone by the Canepa cars, are the cars in the parking lot. People are really bringing some cool stuff out every month, and there is a little something for everyone. This month there were several American cars from 1920′s rat rods to tri-year Chevys and 1960′s muscle cars along with about 30 Porsches, a few Ferraris, a McLaren, tons of BMW’s and more.

Enjoy the pictures!
