Default Graphite Sheets

Does anybody know where I can buy sheets of graphite. I know Penguine has them, but are there any other places?

Thanks!

you can get plain black or colored CF at:

you can get paper thin colored CF that can ge cut with a knife if you want to dress up your existing CF parts...and make them look new again...

Also-how about 3/16 to 1/4" thick pieces of carbon fiber. Or maybe a graphite material thats machinable.

Ray,
What do you plan to do with 1/4" thick carbon fiber?

Also, FYI for anyone that plans to cut their own chassis or other CF parts, carbon fiber is very abrasive and even brand new solid carbide cutting bits don't last very long. Don't forget to wear a respirator as well.

Ray,
How big is this one-off car? Indy cars tubs aren't even that thick.
