Default DIY carbon fiber.

For some of you that all ready know me, you guys know how crazy I am when it comes to cars. I love what I do so I said to myself let me try this again. Last time I had wrapped my porsche interior parts in carbon so I said to myself lets try this with the lambo parts. Just bought a used e gear surround that I got over charged for but what ever. So this is a project that will get your hands dirty. If you are a lambo owner and your scared that you will get your hands dirty this project is not for you ; - )
First off with a 220 grit sand paper you need to scuff the console for the carbon to stick. I stared sanding it down already and getting ready to lay down the base witch will make the carbon fiber stick to it.
When you are done with that step you will have to clean it with soap and water. Let it dry and then you can start working on it again. Make sure you sand down the back portion also for the carbon fiber sticks. The weather is not that great in new york so weather plays a big roll when it comes to the resin drying. I will be updating this thread when ever I can. Working on so many other projects so im hoping I finish this one asap. Stay tuned.
