Winter Jobs: Reconditioning Carbon Fibre trim

The carbon fibre trim attached to the A-pillars on the front, and the bottom of the rear screen looked tatty.
I didn’t get any photos of the before, but the lacquer had blistered, and it looked in a sorry state.
I did consider replacing it, but knowing how individual these cars can be, I assumed I would likely have fitment issues. Time to have a go at reconditioning carbon fibre trim.
masking upThe black Sikaflex sealing these to the screen looked in excellent condition, so I decided to leave them in situ.
The process involved masking the entire car, just leaving the Carbon exposed.
Wet & dry light sand the remaining old lacquer off, and then give it multiple coats of new lacquer.

    Your website is great thanks! Have just got myself a Cerb straight 6 1999 so doing lots of similar jobs, will do that trick on the trims. Saw a rear one for £140! So lacquering is the way for me.

      thanks Ross. Re-lacquering is definitely the way. 2 years later and mine still look as good as the day I did them. Good luck!
