Default Real carbon fibre skinning

I have just ordered the first kit to give this a try.I am going to start buy doing door grabs and mirror caps to see how it goes.If anybody is interested in having parts skinned let me know.Obviously prices will have to be worked out accordingly as this ptocess takes considerably longer than vinyl wrapping.

Its a long winded process.Parts have to be sanded to give the resin something to bond to then left for a few hours then the carbon wrapped on and the resin with hardner painted over then left for 24hours to cure then sanded and repeated another 2 times then either clear coat laquered or poilished up with a compound to get the shine.At the moment I am not sure on prices as I need to do a few dummy runs to see how long and how much it uses.

Be interested in seeing pics of mirrors and spoiler, when you have them finished Daz.
