Default CAD files for making custom chassis?

I recently have been put in charge of our CNC and vacuum forming department at work, so I was wondering if anyone had any CAD files for making custom chassis. Specifically any CRC carpet knife files. I can change or customize what ever.

I just want to test for right now to see if This might be worth a go.

so if any one has any cad drawings, such as dfx, or dwg files. I would like to see them. Thank you,

Oh yeah I also would like to know where is a good place to buy carbon fiber sheets?

You'll probably have a tough time getting a manufacturer to willingly give up their proprietary CAD files.

For Carbon, Call DA Graphite or KCI

I'm not looking for originals, I'm looking for something custom. but if the originals leaked out some how, I wouldn't complain. I don't want to make exact coppies, I want to make new chassis that will expand set up capabilities. Stuff like adjustable battery trays, increasing rigidity for carpet racing.
I probably should make the statement that any files need to be sized correctly to account for a 1/16th sized router bit.
