    Default Carbon Fibre

    I've played around with it.... Was a first timer, learning experience....
    Turned out well in the bottom of my Bahner....

    Check my thread....

    79 Bahner down under! Strip back & re-paint! Over-haul during winter!

    Sorry for the threadjack guys.............. For what it's worth, I would love to try doing this someday too.

    Well, i couldn't stand it any longer. I had to get my hands on some carbon to do a little experimenting. Learned a ton in a short amount of time tonight. Project is in full swing. Hopefully in a few weeks i'll have some great photos to show the process. for now, just a teaser of the first test.

    I officially love carbon fiber.

    From the looks of things considering everyrhing seems like it is high def or rather close ( could that be a 4x4 twill carbon fiber fabric ) which has a very cool and unique weave in itself ........................................but i could be wrong .
