      I don't think I've ever seen anyone on here do carbon fiber, but I've seen countless people do black 3M vinyl.

      I've heard it's a PITA.

      I've attempted to do a clear bra wrap and a tail light vinyl tint myself and both failed miserably.

      I'm pretty sure that the people who do it professionally know some kind of strange vinyl voodoo and sacrifice vinyl kid robot toys or something to make it work right

      Patience, water, soap, a scraper and a heat gun are the essential things required.

      That's the best thread on this forum, we should just all post in there instead of making new threads.
