Icon6 DIY CARBON FIBER PAINT JOB

Alright alot of people been wondering how to create paint job that looks just like carbon fiber.

Tools needed:
Airbrush kit or regular spray paint
Paint:Silver and Black( if you using it on engine parts make sure to use high heat ceramic paint)
High Heat Clear Coat
Shelf liner
Index Card


!!!!: MAKE SURE TO CLEAN,SAND, AND PREPARE YOUR PAINTING AREA BEFORE YOU START. And please read instructions on how to use spray paint if you want to get excellente results.

Procedures:
1) Use primer black and add 3-4 layers of paint to object make sure to wait for each layer to dry out. Use heat gun or hair dryer if u dont have one.
2) Cover the object with shelf liner make sure its snug
3) Use index car to even out bumps of shelf liner as you do step 4
4) Go over the object with silver one layer remember do not add to much of paint to one spot make sure to move around in even lines. Let it dry.
5)Then PERPENDICULARY to how you painted the silver go over with transparent black make lines do not cover the whole paint paint job again all with black. just kinda make streaks side to side.Let it dry.
6) Use your clear coat and make 2-3 layer of it make sure spread it evenly.
AND HERE YA GO. you have a paint job that looks just like CF.

I'd like to see a step by step also. And from what I seen in the videos, laying down silver first and then spraying black with the liner makes it look more like carbon fiber. Either that or its just the method of how you lay down each coat I guess.

Its a cool idea but i find it looks exactly like what it is, black spray paint with silver dots. The whole point of carbon fiber is to have a lighter part than OEM.

i tried something like this last year after my civic was recovered from getting stolen and i did not have the cash to buy real carbon, i used flat black and gloss black yours looks better then mine because i used big fish net fabric to cover my hole hood it kinda turned out like crap but i just sold the car as soon as it was fixed any ways
