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.

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

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

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.
