Carbon wrapping, very cool

As i was browsing around the google trying to find pics of vinyl wrapped st3rs, i came across this video. The music is annoying as shit but i've never seen the process of carbon wrapping parts. Very cool!

I ended up watching almost all nine minutes of that, to my surprise. That's way cool! I had no idea carbon wrapping was done with a liquid-ish dip process

He is risen!

Hydro dip is one way. I think popular among hunters?
More popular way in motorsports is 3M vinyls. DiNoc or 1080 wraps.

There's a whole thread one here in the street triple section about 3M Dinoc. The OP was wrapping his forks. I'll see if I can dig it up.

thats because its hydrodipping as said.

i personally dont consider that as "wrapping"

and carbon hydrodipping looks extremely fake

Yea, the weave typically shows up warped and stretched at corners and edges due to the nature of water. Not so good for geometric/uniform designs, camo shows up fine which is why hunters/fisherman like hydrodipping. You also can't exactly dip an entire car.

The only downside to dinoc and 1080 is that it shows up as bare carbon. No real carbon is left bare, it will always be coated in resin. So if you want it to look authentic, you'll have to clear coat it until it's smooth (it's textured to show dimension and realism).

I stand corrected. "hydrodipping" Still a very cool looking process i had no idea existed. Learn something new everyday :)
