We've got 5 or 6 cars that have done the overlay kits. Not real CF, but pretty damn close.

Send me some.

Very interested to see the final result. I've got real CF overlays, but looked very hard for a molded set. How are you applying the clear stuff (epoxy, resin, whatever it is)?

im not a girl, jsut thin.

it should cost about $20-25 for a 4x3 piece of cf. its pretty easy, all you have to do is, measure, cut, peel off the backing, press on surface, let cure for a day or 2 at room temp, then sand and clear, if desired.

not sure yet, my dad says they use resin but that takes about 10hrs to look good, so i think ill just go for some clear coat. i would leave it how it is, but it would get dust in the weaves and then it would look like crap.
