    Mike what did you use to finish the CF off? It looks like a few layers of gloss paint along with a bunch of sanding and buffing.

    Very purdy!

    The clear finish is nine coats of Spies Hecker automotive clear. It was applied three coats at a time and sanded after each three coat layer. The finish was left untouched after the last three coats. This allowed me to bury the graphics without leaving any edges. The reality is that it looks great but has a pound of paint that it doesn't need.
