na i watched a TON of them over that last few days.. seams the biggest thing is PATIENCE and taking your time.

will keep everyone posted. hope things turn out well.

I did find out thought from talking to people about this. if you screw it up. you have to sand this off and start from scratch so it is important to take your time

ok this will be a little lenghty so bear with me.. i for some reason can't figure out how to upload photos to my user gallery.. I used to. as i have to albums in there.. but i try to make a new album and it won't let me load photos.. says they are to big.. even thought the biggest one is 1.25mb. whatever.. stupid computers.. IF someone can help me out please let me know.

OK

1st. here is a couple shots of the kit as it comes from dipwizard.com


you can see, they send 2 pairs of gloves a mask, a brown pc of scotch brite pad, and a tack cloth

2nd pic is the paints


this kit came with WHITE PAINT, the ACTIVATOR, and a GLOSS CLEARCOTE.

Na not sure what the deal is.. it havn't been able to do it for MONTHS.. ANY WAY on we go.

3rd pic

this is the carbon fiber material.. you can get it in different lengths. i bought 7 meters worth total as i have some large pcs i am going to do.. may end up needing more.


4th pic. this is what i used for my cheesy test pcs. it was cheap at the dollar store and got the job done.. nothng more than an alum pan for a buck. for small parts it works fine. bigger stuff will require something like a rubbermade container or something else


5th pic
this is the various paints and colors i used for this test.. the one can you will notice was from the kit ( white ) i also used red, dark gray, a light gray and black.



6th pic you will see my test pcs.. went to menards ( a local store like homedepot or lowes ) bought these cheap outlet covers in white for .19 a pcs.. figure i can screw up a bunch of stuff for under 2 dollars till i get this figured out.. this is what they looked like painted.
