    You don't know how hard it'll be till you try it. My first attempts were not too successful but its getting better.Its like using fibreglass in a way but it is more difficult because you want it all to line up correctly because its for appearance purposes.Glass fiber on the other hand becomes more or less invisible with resin and gets sanded and painted over usually which makes it far easier to work with :thumbup

    Wrapping stuff in real CF looks the same as fiberglass work....or am I wrong?

    Real carbon wrap is easy to do if you have the patience to do it and remember with resin less is more and all depends on the thing you want to wrap aswel

    I hope that shi* is good bc I just bought some.
