Developed by our sister company Carbon Mods this Carbon Fibre Skinning Starter Kit™ contains everything you need to take an original part (made from plastic, metal or any other material), cover it with genuine 2/2 twill carbon fibre and finish it to a high gloss.
Skinning a part with carbon fibre will enhance its appearance and increase its strength and is a viable alternative to the more complicated approach of making an all-carbon fibre replacement part where volumes are small (such as one-offs) and cosmetic appearance, rather than weight saving, is the primary objective.
This comprehesive starter kit includes:
- 0.3sqm 2/2 twill 3k dry carbon fibre fabric
- 166g laminating epoxy resin base coat
- 166g epoxy resin top coat
- 166g epoxy hardener
- 25ml polishing compound
- 2 pairs Nitrile gloves, 2 mixing pots, 2 mixing sticks
- 2 x 1" laminating brush
- 120, 240, 400, 800 & 1200 grit full sheets of wet and dry sand paper
- Full instructions
When unrolled the carbon fibre fabric is 300mm(11.8") wide and 1000mm(39.4") long.
Uses for This Kit
Use this kit to cover a wide range of parts in and around your vehicle, or just about any other item that would look stunning with a genuine carbon fibre finish.
Use this kit to:
- Cover plastic interior mouldings and trim such as centre consoles and door handle mouldings
- Cover plastic exterior mouldings such as wing mirrors, rub strips and bumper inserts
- Cover metal parts such as slam panels
What results can I expect?
All the materials, supplies and techniques supplied as part of the skinning kit are completely capable of producing professional quality, saleable parts. However, like any practical task (such as repairing a scratch or dent on your car or fitting a stereo) perseverance will be required to produce parts of the highest quality. As you gain skill and experience the quality of the parts will increase and the time taken to make them will decrease.
As with all Carbon Mods starter kits, the skinning kit is accompanied by comprehensive instructions that take you through the process of skinning your parts from prep all the way to polish.
Different Fabric Types
This skinning kit is now available in a choice of different fabric types. The standard skinning kit includes 2/2 twill carbon fibre fabric and black basecoat but is now joined by a PLAIN WEAVE option (where a one-over-one-under weave pattern is desired) and also an Alufibre version which replaces the black carbon fabric with silver Alufibre. The Alufibre version of the kit also includes a special white basecoat instead of the usual black basecoat.
Choose the fabric type you would like from the drop-down list (above) when ordering.
