Carbon Fiber STICKER!

Postby DarkiSt » April 7th, 2006, 11:11 am

Ok, i go admit it... I cant afford a real carbon fiber invader style bonnet for the civic.
so i build a fiberglass imitation.......i was going jus spray it black, but then due to other conditions (long story) i realize i go need to get a carbon fiber look.
Anyone here every try the carbon fiber vinyl graphic that selling? how realistic it look on a whole car bonnet?

Another thing, i aint know if to buy a "blanket" vinyl, to cover the whole bonnet in one shot, or if to buy a roll of vinyl and tile it on in sections.

If anyone could enlighten me on the situation it would be appreciated.

yu cud go to one of those graphics shops that do digital printing, sign sloutions, motor city, label house etc and they will give yu a cost to cover the bonnet, if yu want a more realistic look, cover it in one piece not tiles and clear coat after to maintain shine................



fellas go say is rice, buh i really cyah affor to import ah cf hood for my lancer from japan. i find is look damn cool.

Aight..well I living in St. Vincent, so I cant check the prices. If anyone know the actual price, I might have to get some from down there. TT$90 for 3 square feet real cheap.

I aint think it so rice...because it going on a fiberglass bonnet, so it going be about as light as a real carbon fiber one.

ok...it still rice. :D
but it look good.

Anyone could quote a price for 5ftx5ft (if that available?) if not i go roll with two of the 3' sq.

Another thing though, I always hearing that TnT is the place to go for car parts, but i never even see ONE website selling decent parts yet. and i well fraid to go bamboo myself :shock:

I can supply you with a scratch resistant simulated carbon fibre film.

It's protected by a layer of clear Lexan.

Has to be ordered
