Help With carbon fiber

Just scratched up the bottom of my cf splitter real bad. Whats the way to go no, cf tape to cover it up? Or just buff it out w/ a rubbing agent? Any advice welcome.

I haven't owned any cf parts that could get damaged at all, but I guess a light buffing could work? Is it decent cf, or just a splitter with like a cf overlay?

Its a very nice seibon carbon splitter. I figure using a light buffing agent, a few strokes, should help? Any advice appreciated.

Carbon fiber is based on the same basics as fiberglass.

Criminal is an unknown quantity at this point
Once a crack developes in the carbon fiber it may extend over time

A scratch on the clear coat is very different than a crack in the CF. A picture, as Mark requested, is ideal.
