    Default Carbon Skinning

    Has anyone on here had a go at Carbon Skinning?

    What are your experiences and results? 2/2 twill, plain weave etc

    I might have a go at this as it looks fun

    Ive had a go at it steve, I tried to do an old set of mirror covers I had. I think I started on something too complicated though as there were a few imperfections. Id say your best trying on something small and a simple shape just for practice. Your right though it is loads of fun.

    check our www.carbonmods.com as they do a starter kit for about £50 iirc.

    EDIT: check out Satty's thread as hes done loads, on his car. Cant seem to find it at the moment but if i do ill post the link.

    Yeah just read Satty's thread and sent him a PM..

    Looks like he didnt use any of his work in the end though which is a shame.

    Carbon skinning the roof was a big job

    I've thought about doing a custom one off front VXR splitter in Carbon Fibre skin... for the summer season and shows etc...

    Still heavily thinking about it for a winter project
