Carbon Fiber Shortage
 
I need to buy Carbon Fiber cloth... a lot of it, and different thicknesses...in Europe, most of our usual suppliers are short for the next 2 months, and its becoming like gold.

Does any of my American friends know or can provide a site to companies selling it in the US?

thank you...its urgent..

I just checked my local marine supplier's site, and they appear to have it in stock. You'll have to check quantities though - since the supply shortage is global, they may not sell in bulk.

Jamestown Distributors

Thanks TB will start looking at it now...do you know them?

I'd second Jamestown Distributors... excellent company to work with... might want to ask if there are any export restrictions or fees though.

I'll get it sent to someone that will bring it to me by plane...that's not a problem....I just need a lot..I wil try them.

I just sent a letter to my contacts at DHS and the FBI, describing how a Portugese terrorist group is trying to make stealth vehicles, and that any carbon fiber shipments headed to Portugal should be intercepted. :D

I hope that helps you out Giu. :D
