Very inexpensive Carbon Fiber....

YouTube - Carbon Fiber Effect...Pretty Cool,

with spring around the corner I am getting ready to do some more upgrades,
starting with the suspension....I just ordered the Eibach Sway bar kit, & I plan on getting some other suspension parts from FCP Gronton. Also have to do the rear shock tower reinforcement plates, & install a stealth powered subwoofer in behind the center arm rest in the rear seat.....back to the Carbon fiber...last year, I accidentally scratched the top radiator cover, I tried wet sanding it with 2000 grit, I got the scratch out, but dulled the surface out.....I was thinking about buying a new one for about $35.00, but remembered seeing a carbon fiber one somewhere, but that cost........ $280.00.... way too much!

Spray on Carbon Fiber....about $12.00 with nylon/plastic spray paint....
So, I ran across this technique & have decided to give it shot on my top radiator cover......I will post before & after pics when I am finished.
