Jaw dropping is a good descriptor.

I'd say "nice work", but it's not...strong enough somehow.

I'll leave it at "Wow".

Don't have any idea what to charge. I guess i could even sell a few pieces of the material for cheap. How much would one pay for this? lol...
I'll be super excited to see even more of your work. I am amazed at how "factory" it looks. Everything is so clean! What amazes me is how you got the corners on the top to lay so perfectly. Once again awesome work, and I might just get tempted to send you my mini.

I am also a HUGE carbon fiber fanatic. This looks 100 times better than the ACP carbon fiber stickers. Nice work!

If you start producing these put me down for one

I wonder if this would be easily done with leather, instead of carbon fiber?

Probably easier with leather - it's far more pliable. Though it probably wouldn't transfer inputs on the touchpad very well.

of course a cf lid for the mini would be nice too Gelcoat? Vaccum bag?

Nice job!
