    Cheapo Carbon Fibre

    As the weather is shit here, as well as having a guilty conscience about how I treated my beloved Mille around Snetterton 300 on Monday, I thought i'd treat her to some Carbon wrap off ebay. This is what I did.






    Looks good I think, and for less than a fiver.

    Looking good, how easy is it to shape around curved parts and corners?

    It's fairly easy, just needs patience and a hairdryer to warm it up a bit to make it more supple.

    Looks good, was thinking about doing my underseat panels at some point too. I carbon wrapped my fairing wind deflectors a wee while ago and although it was fiddly to do it turned out very well.

    Thought I would have a go as well, should have tried a simpler shape on my 1st attempt but with a little patience the results were quite good




    Also did my side panels
