WTB: Carbon Fiber Scrap Piece

I am in need of a small piece of carbon fiber minimum 8 inches wide by 4.5 inches tall. I'm going to cut it down to replace the black piece that I cut from stock body work to accommodate my new radiator as seen in the photo below. I'm hoping someone has a damaged or not needed piece of carbon fiber bodywork that I could scavenge it from. Thank You

Hit up the guy on carbonpartz.net he is a member on this forum and I have got custom carbon fiber from him. I am sure he can help you. Tell him I sent you from here.

Thank you I really appreciate the offer. I'm going to wait a bit before I take you up on it though. Due to the shape and bends on that part it may be a little challenging to cut what I need out of it. I'm going to try a piece of flat stock first. i will shoot you an email if that doesn't work out.

I found someone selling flat stock finished carbon fiber sheets in varying thicknesses. I picked up a 6"x 8" piece for about $7 so I can finally say this job is finished.
