Carbon Fiber Kit

on Apr 14, 2012
After waiting for half a day, my parcel have finally arrived!!! This is a birthday present for myself... Getting the kit is easy but what's waiting ahead is something I'm quite scare of... I plan to redo my 'FrankenBenz' interior wood trim with this... Actually I've already did something to the wood trim in the form of carbon fiber sticker... Looks nice in the first few months but after that, it started to look cheap and not forgetting untidy as the sticker started to peel off itself...

Saw something on the net on skinning carbon fiber and I found someone selling this kit in 'Mudah' and I decided to take the plunged and try making carbon fiber myself... Not the real carbon fiber mind you, but definitely looks the part... 

This kit consist of all the things that you ever need in making your own carbon fiber parts... All you have to do is follow the instruction correctly and get your hands dirty... 


 Epoxy resin, hardener, polisher and compound for making the surface hard and shiny!!!


Carbon fiber cloth that looks real when you do it correctly... Can't wait to get my hands dirty!!! Going to start my project tomorrow by prepping the wooden center console!!! Wish me luck...


To be continue...
