But cool project, how much does that amount of CF cost? How hard is the project?
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.
Whoops, sorry man, it looked like nail polish in the pic (didn't look at it hard enough) so I thought it would be a great joke and you'd tell us it was your g/f or something, and good times would be had by all. Instead, I just come off looking like an *******, sorry.

I assume the cf is impreganted w/ the resin already?

Cool, if you could do that, I wonder what the same thing would look painted in body color, hmm?

That would look pretty nice.

its ok, we all joke around here. i can take it jsut as good as i can dish it out.

ya, usually they stick the cf in an oven for 4-5 hrs. but my oven wont fit that. so it will sit for a day or so.

Pricy, how? I just assumed that i would take it out, buff it up, prime it then spray it body color with those mini cans from Duplicolor?

Mind explaining how you came at the pricy idea?
