    i have a carbon fiber hood on my hatch and the front of the hood has some cracking also...the upper part of the hood seems to be changing color, looks somewhat like an airbubble or something...how can i repair the cracked clear coating and can i repair the color change???

    lmaopmp (lmao...piss my pants)

    you know realise what your going to be told when you go to a shop and ask to have it repaired.....

    WHAT ARE YOU STUPID JUST GO BUY A NEW FUCKING ONE....

    yes carbon fibre can be fixed but isnt worth the time or money when in a week your going to pop your hood for something and it just break in two....

    just go buy the new hood and for time being use a stock one....

    and if you have a problem with that :huh: Ducken Fick (spoonerism) suck a dick or something i dunno....

    Its going to cost just as much to either wrap it again or even to wetsand and re-clear it. Like stated above but said nicer, buy another hood.

    Sand it out, and paint it the color of the car. Stealth hoods get stolen less.

    it happend to me and since at the time i was working in the military we had acces to the carbonfiber sheets and resin and vacum containers that we use for the helicopters so i fixed it my self and even went as far as making a nice scoop for it but that was because i knew what i was doing since the Army trained me to play with Kavelar and carbonfiber....lol one of the many trades the US army have....lol

    It's all fun and games. I just thought i'd say what I said cause I was in autozone the other day and saw the carbon fiber wrap and remembered thinking to myself, "dam I just spent $600+ on fenders and almost $700 for my hood when I could've just bought the cheap shit" lol

    on ebay they sell the carbonfiber cloth all you have to do is work it like fiber glass since you dont have the proper equipment to doit, i would doit ghetto style...lol and youll be surprised it comes out looking good if i was near you i would fix it for you i still have some CF cloth left.... :)

    ghetto style is laying the cloth on the crack then pour the resin on top and spread it on it then let it dry.....
