X9E Carbon Faceplate

Quick Overview

Dress up your X9E with a Carbon faceplate.

Availability: In stock


We think this faceplate looks great on our X9E shop radio! The plates are CNC cut from .17mm (.009) thick, 2x2 twill weave matte finish carbon fiber sheet. It is a good idea to test fit the plate to check for alignment and clearance. When we were satisfied with the fit, we removed the protective plastic and applied a thin mist of spray adhesive ( 3m 77, Loctite 200, etc) to the back of the plate and very carefully laid it into position, and voila!

Now includes a navigation knob cover. (not pictured above.)

Faceplates have a gloss finish that really looks great! The carbon fiber weave shifts in the light almost like a hologram. Very nice.

Note: Some plates will have a protective film in place that will need to be removed before gluing. This film is hard to see, so using a piece of tape on a corner and peeling the tape off towards the inside of the part is a quick way to test if the film is present.

  1. Amazing transformtion review by David on 3/8/2016

    This carbon fiber faceplate is a wonderful addition to my E. The appearance of the radio just went up $200 at least. I would go to say the E most likely should have had a carbon fiber faceplate like this as delivered. Note the faceplate I received did need some material removed around the scroll wheel hole to keep it from binding. I assume future faceplates shipments will fix this. (Note: Yes, they have been fixed.)

    Suggest you practice putting it on several times without adhesive as I did simulating how you will handle it with adhesive. You may also find you need an alignment aid as I did but the practice should tell you that.

    Thanks Aloft for a great product enhancement.
