    Carbon fibre film

    alright boys and gilr. jusy got my mirors back from the body shop, and set about trying to cover the covers in carbon fibre effect film. what a complete disaster that was, it went on fine, but the amount of bubbles i ended up with!!!

    Is there anyone out there that could undertake this work for me, as i've just wasted about an hour and £25's worth of film

    also if its the defender stuff that frauds sell is a 3 yr life vinyl thats printed with silver - you can get 5 yr which is a bit more bendable - comes in a 300mm wide roll and its about 6 quid a metre which is what i have - im sure i have an offcut at home if u want it - will check later but as for bubbles just put the end of a blade in it and push the air out

    Theres a couple of decent graphics places in Blackpool who would more than likely do this for you. Ive had work done by Black Widow and recommend them and a few mates of mine have used Koyote, both places are of good quality, competitive prices and a decent set of guys working there.
    Ive just had a quick look for the numbers and cant find them, ill have another look later on for you mate if your interested?
