I just reveived 3 yards of the fabric and am doing my own parts. I was hoping to pigment it but I am not sure the stuff I bought will do it.

Unless you have a mold set up you need the door panels you have to lay the cf overtop them. Are you looking to do the whole panel, armrests and all?

basically working with carbon fiber is like working with fiberglass (at least to my understanding it's similar)

i would attempt to make your prized aftermarket parts in fiberglass first because it costs WAY less and materials can be found at canadian tire.
Once you have that down pact move up to the expensive materials
after you already have the molds ready

Can you guys explain some of these terminology.
"Pigmented" "Weaved" "dyed"

Can somebody make me a CF hood?

one more question, ifyou get the carbon fibre sheet
then How do you make a clear layer over the CF?

when you look at CF hood, you know there are clear layer over top?
