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 don't 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

if I was to get any fake carbon bits done I would personally use the new trader on here who does carbon dipping it looks bloody good.
