    Default ? HELP NEEDED ? Applying carbon fiber!

    Assalam o Alaikum fellow Pakwheels!

    I bought a sheet of carbon fiber from jz bhai of Pakwheels. It's quality is good and i want to apply it on my bike...

    But before i could start my DIY, i thought of practicing on other things, fortunately, i found my cell phone the best to practice, as it is almost plain from back.

    The tools i used were:-
    1- 7'o clock blade.
    2- blade/cutter.
    3- Hair Dryer.


    Well, i was doing well on the back of phone but got confused/messed up from sides and edges... They were looking awful! I tried the heating technique but no satisfactory result...


    Second thing is fine cutting!
    Gets too much rough when cutting with razor or blade


    My 3 attempts of (RE) Applying failed, and I'm very much disappointed by it...


    So, my brothers!
    I'm sure many of you know the correct procedure in applying it in the correct manner. I hope i will get a NOOB friendly tutorial here by experts

    Thank You!

    Well the sheet looks good to me... nice shade

    Watch videos on youtube... You'll get an idea..

    first apply on straight paths.. leave the curvees.. In the end apply heat on curve by grapping the cf from one end.. while applying heat stretch it will fit nicely on cruve leaving no wrinkles

    So, you mean to say that while applying heat and stretching from one end, it'll expand the material?

    1. Thats the whole point !! Stretch it at bends to fit it cleanly.. That what CF is all about

    2. From any medical store.. Surgical blade is damn sharp and pointed.. Used for cutting organs during operation and scalpel will help you hold it easily like a pen

    ^u need this one...

    ? HELP NEEDED ? Applying carbon fiber! -1090692? HELP NEEDED ? Applying carbon fiber! - z1blade9751695



    for corner and edges, like silver_knife said, pull the heated sheet from the corners while applying pressure with thumb, index fingers ..after that, cut the leftovers with surgical blade to finish .... and dont worry, with practice comes perfection .. its a job which needs lots of patience ..

    That's very kind of you bhai
    Meri starting achi rahti ha but ending nahi. I.e. i start from back side and everything goes well but jab sides wrap karne lago to ho jati hain but rough edges visible hote hain :-(

    Today i experimented it on my car and did them neatly like a pro... it really changed the looks of the interior...
