Have been looking at the new gloss carbon fibre wrap that 3m is now doing. Was just wondering if anyone has used it yet? As i cant seem to find any reviews on it as of yet.

I know you will all say either get the real thing or dont bother but please, im only looking into it for cosmetic reasons, not performance.

I will let you know by the weekend mate. I purchased a firbreglass tailgate jdm style and it weights nothing and I'm wrapping this due to a few imperfections on the mould but when I was at my friends graphic shop it looked good quality

Matt black carbon on the far right, the new 'gloss' carbon on the left with *New written under it:

It is slightly glossier, looks nothing like laquered carbon fibre still though!
