I thought this was interesting and could be very useful in the right situation.

Custom Composite Parts
HyperFiber is the revolutionary, time saving, material that allows you to make your own custom composite parts in minutes. No more mixing high odor resins hoping to get exactly the right ratio, trying to get just the right amount of resin on your material, or wasting resin that sets up in the can or drips off on the work surface. HyperFiber has fiber and resin combined with a dry film on each side for the perfect ratio of material and resin EVERY TIME. Simply cut and form HyperFiber in its uncured state to your desired shape inside, out of the sun. Your work time is nearly unlimited! No longer are you working against the clock to try to get everything done before your part sets up. Once you are finished, simply expose the piece to sunlight or a Percy’s UV light source and the HyperFiber will set up in a matter of minutes! With the material used in HyperFiber, you are also able to form it around the most complex curves and angles without having wrinkles or needing to cut the material.


Here is a couple of articles on the product that show examples of making something from the HyperFiber.

I can think back too at least a dozen past engine and drive train swaps where that material would have been a huge asset if its not to expensive!
I can easily see a layer of bubble wrap placed over a transmission that was larger than the original cars trans tunnel would allow to be installed, to maintain the necessary clearance ,followed by carefully cut and formed hyper clothe, then once thats rigid it can be used to form the temporary but left in place ,support base and a layer of fiberglass mat and resin bing used too add structural strength to form a trans tunnel cover or if your tubbing a rear differential area.
rather than the carefully cut card board and duct tape and chicken wire most swaps in the past used
IF YOU CAN,T SMOKE THE TIRES AT WILL,FROM A 60 MPH ROLLING START YOUR ENGINE NEEDS MORE WORK!!"!
IF YOU CAN , YOU NEED BETTER TIRES AND YOUR SUSPENSION NEEDS MORE WORK!!

About $100 for a 24" x 60" piece at Summit.

You can buy many different sizes, most of which are 12" or 24" wide, but they also have sizes just for making patches like 12" x 12".
