Hi i am new to this site and would like to show what you can do with a couple of pounds, i bought a carbon vinyls sheet the cheapest you can get at £8 but only used a small piece of it, i am really made up with the outcome as i have never done it before, if you are thinking of having a go make sure you watch a few videos on youtube first i can let you know the good ones i watched if you want, they have turned out perfectly with no bubbles. can also let you know the tools you need also very cheap, carbon has got 12 year lifespan indoors 5 years then for the wing mirrors. As i am new to this i would also like some tips from the pros.

Hi,
Just looked through your pictures and am really impressed, I'm also new to the site and am looking for some little things I can do to my focus to set it apart a bit. Could you tell me where you got the carbon fibre stuff from and what tools you used?
Thanks,
Dan

fro the vinyl
http://www.ebay.co.u...#ht_1738wt_1037
for the squeege
http://www.ebay.co.u...#ht_2620wt_1037
for good scalpel handel
http://www.ebay.co.u...9#ht_2127wt_905
10 blades for the handle

and then you just need like a hairdryer or heat gun, but with the vinyl you get you can do what i done 4 times and the pieces left over you can do keythobs phones etc its great stuff

My Dad does this in his garage, he pimps bikes and cars for a living, and he did a load of this on my bike. I didn't even think about doing bits of my dash, so thanks for the idea!
Not only can you get the carbon effect you can get loads of other designs too if you want something really different :)

Mine is a Honda CBR125, it's the carbon yes. See pic below:

There are quite a few little bits all over. Rear handle, light tray, mirrors, footstand, swingarm and the rest you can see really.

I had a cbr 125 i could get 80mph on it and 100 miles to a fiver 2 years ago take it you get a lot less now, gutted when i was going round a roundabout in the wet as the little tyres didnt like it, no cars would stop lol when i was trying to pick it up with a damaged leg so you planning on doing ya test its easy if ya dont put ya foot down on u-turn the rest is a piece of cake and i like the yellow carbon contrast. I have even done the peak on my helmet looks really well. How did you do the foot stand and the handle are the hydro dipped?

Cheers for that Stoney

Yep have had 80 out of her (downhill lol). I also crashed it twice going round really sharp bends :(
Got a KTM 640 LC4 for when I pass my test, but just separated from my husband so the motorbike stuff is on hold at the minute :(
Re the vinyls, most of it was dipped I think.

We are still friends so it's all good. He is stripping the KTM down for me, and giving it a bit of an overhaul for me. Bought it cheap and needs a little cleaning, but engine wise it's sound.

Isle of Man is best place ever. I am from the Wirral, originally but lived over here nearly 11 years now and would never go back to the UK. Just nip back to visit my Dad back in the Wirral when I can afford it!

Go to your profile, Edit my profile on the right hand side. Then Change my photo. As long as your pic isn't too big then you should be able to upload it from there.

I have just changed mine and that worked fine.
