Want To Carbon Up Some Bits


Recommended Posts


I saw a few pictures on Finaltrial.com of a some carbon parts he had made and 1 sparked of some interest with me and i wanted to have a go. It was the carbon hs33 cylinders, ive heard of somthing where u lay wet carbon and i was wonderin if any 1 would know how to do it or how he did it and where to buy the carbon from and what tools id need for the job.

Thanks Danny

Do you even under stand how carbon fiber works, let alone played with it?

West ssytem resin alone is near enough £80, the cloth it's self £100 currently and then the tools! You'll need a vacume bagger too to do what you want!

I'll do it for you but it's costly sadly!

Edit: that website don;t even come on google!!!!!

I remember seeing these a while back, its just a carbon effect or carbon wrapped around, can't remember which. Carbon is a right b*****d to work with, and very expensive. You really need to know what you're doing to get a good result. So get some carbon effect sticker, it's surprisingly convincing. My mate once covered his bike in it and without close inspection it looked pretty authentic.

If it's the dude that ride a Binachi Ilions then he use carbon vinle which is tacky!

Sorry, but i use only real carbonfiber (and i ride BT now). :P

Reason why i did so called covers on my hs33 cylinders is simpy because the paint was gone of them. Cylinders looked ugly so i did something to cover them...

Working with carbonfibre is suprisingly easy, i really have to make somekind of guide how to make parts on your own sometimes (in English too).
