HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Carbon fiber look

Post  ffmedic on Thu Jul 09, 2009 9:32 pm

I was watching a show last week in which they painted a car to look like it was carbon fiber.
I just purchased a front bumper from fiberwerks and wanted to paint that and few other pieces to look like it was carbon fiber with paint.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to paint these pieces so they look like carbon fiber?

You need not paint. Its a roll of vinyl thats very thin and plyable. They did this to a lambo in flat black.

What show was it? I have looked up shows on the net and found thier sponsor list and got the name of the supplier and did research with that. How did they make it look like carbon fiber? It would take for ever to mask off the pattern then hours to paint it. Are you sure it wasn't vinyl or something like that?

Bingo, amazing what a little research will do Razz.
Looked up real carbon fiber sheets online, they do make vinyl sheets you can use that look like carbon fiber, but I figured why not get the real thing.
Here's a link from a company I found:
