Carbon fiber bumpers, hood, spoiler and air intakes look great on any car. However, such details are expensive. But there is an alternative - carbon film. It simulates the coating of CFRP parts and is very inexpensive.
This film mimics plastic quite well. From a distance, it is almost impossible to determine whether a carbon fiber part or it is simply covered with a film. The carbon film adheres very well to the surface of the car and lasts for a long time. But here's the catch - the film adheres perfectly only to a flat surface. Although if you follow the rules for surface preparation and properly warm the film, you can paste over at least the entire car body with it.
The first step is to clean the surface of the car with isopropyl alcohol or some special agent designed specifically for such work. Curved surfaces should be primed with a primer - a liquid that many times enhances the adhesion of the film to the surface of the car. Apply a primer, after which you can glue the film.
A complex carbon application must be applied after pre-heating its large fragments, and immediately. This will make the film fit better. If you heat small areas of the film, it will come off due to the concentration of internal stresses in it.
Use sealant at joints, overlaps, free edges. It will protect the film, or rather its edges, from the influence of wind and precipitation.
The work is almost finished. But one more stage remained, very simple, but at the same time very important - heating up the critical areas of the film. This is done with a construction hairdryer, since it can be set to sufficiently high temperatures, which will allow you to reliably fix the carbon application on the body of your car.
