Default carbon fiber dash

I want to replace the dash pannels in my formula. Does anyone know where I can get carbon fiber material or a look-a-like carbon fiber dash pannel?
Thanks in advance

Just remember carbon fiber (graphite) will react galvanically with most metals and will corrode whatever it's in contact with (hardware, guages, etc). Make sure everything is well sealed.
