Using real CF on ULE Mag
 
I am in the process of replacing the 3m carbon fibre wrap on the gun below, with actual carbon fibre cloth.

Should have pics in a few days.
Hoping the final product doesn't look like crap. :)

Just finished it.
A couple of small blemishes here and there. But it came out pretty good for a first CF job.

what kind of resin did you use to glass the cloth to the body? or is it something else?
looks good whatever you did. nice work.

I bought a kit for $40 here:

Did you trim the cloth before you put the resin on or after? Just wondering.

henchman 01-31-2013 08:08 PM

After the first coat.

Number 2. Put together from spare parts.
Classic valve with a level 10. I have a hydro dipped faux CF barrel of the way.
It isn't a perfect CF job. Pretty tough to do with all the angles and the side feed.
Might spray the inside of the front body with matte back with that rubber spray coat stuff.
