    Default carbon immersion dipping DIY

    i've been hunting around for different ideas on carbon wrapping my mirror covers and i've found lots of different ideas from real carbon wrapping to
    carbon wrap heat applied film ....and i've previously posted on hydrographics relating to sending your parts for immersion dipping

    but 've now found you can do it at home

    http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/produc...&pcode=FOL3150

    so who's going to take the plunge - so to speak

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    That seems quite expensive. Depends on how many items you can carbon dip really before running out of kit.

    I'd be interested in it though lol

    It is organic but nobody will say what is in it Crazyleds that sells led conversions was looking into it big time but found it hard to get the activator i managed to get 1ltr the dipping part is easy but you MUST have a big enough sink or bath to dip it in i had good fun with the bath ( the wife went mad ) i tried a few types of lac to seal it with but the best is 2pac that gives it a nice finish and long lasting as rattle can only give it a good finish if you take your time
