Full Carbon Windscreen for the R3

I contacted these guys about screens for the R3. They said if I sent them my stock screen they would make a carbon one in all black for $89 for me.
They would send back the stock screen but it might have a few scratches or stains on it from making the mold for the Carbon one.

If I wanted the Gold Carbon it would cost $169 like this R6 listing.

Here are images of their stuff on Google Image Search. They also make fairings and other body parts.

1carbontech makes quality carbon fiber. I have quite a bit of their pieces on my R1.

In my opinion(and experience), anytime you send off your personal factory parts for them to make a mold out of, you get free parts. Especially if they are pretty sure they are going to mess up your original factory parts. In which case they should replace your messed up part with a new OEM part.
They are using your part to prototype which will draw revenue thousands of times over.

That's exactly what I told them when I declined their not so generous "We'll damage your screen and charge you full price for a carbon one" offer. Win-Win for them, not so much for me.
