I've watched a few vids of it recently. It's amazing stuff.

My mate has recently set up his own business doing carbon dipping. Because he's just started, he's offering bargain prices. £120 for 4 wheels.

Where about is he located? Thinking about getting my engine cover done?

Is it proper carbon or just a carbon style pattern? Would be seriously interested in getting my wheels done.

It's carbon style pattern Lee was looking on eBay at all the gear was going to do some in spare time,

But you get small defects in it even if your pro!! look closely at you tube videos the carbon effect stretches and in some cases shows up defects quite badly also seen at local meet it chips very very easily, As it's like tissue paper.

It's basically just a water activated film. The sheet dissolves when placed on water and leaves just the print. The print is transferred onto the object and then is lacquered over.
There's so many different patterns that are available. But personally I'd much rather have my wheels and engine cover powdercoated.
