Since I wrapped my scratched interior aluminium trims earlier in the year I had started to get bored of it. Sounds silly but the fact it wasn't real carbon sort of bothered me and some of the tighter corners had started to wrinkle a bit during the heat wave this summer. I really wanted real carbon but wasn't prepared to pay funny money purely for aesthetics so decided go a different route.
I decided to do an old trick and sand it back to a brushed finish and then a few coats of 2k clear coat.
All in it's taken me a few evenings, one to sand back removing the cross hatching, one to spray the clear and tonight to wet sand and polish. Took me a few trials to decide on what grade of sand paper to use, fine paper obviously doesn't create the brush affect very well and if you go with a very rough grade you have to be very carefull to sand in continuous straight lines which is harder than it sounds!! I opted for middle ground and went for P120 and quite pleased with it, looking forward to fitting it tomorrow.
Tonights pics, I know everyone says it but they look even better in the flesh, quite hard to capture the shine whilst showing the brush effect.
