Special 'Large' 1sqm version suitable for use in High Temperature environments.
By popular request, this is a special larger version of our High Temperature Skinning Starter Kit. Instead of the usual 0.3m x 1m(11.8" x 39.4") peice of carbon fabric, this kit includes full 1sqm (39.4" x 39.4") of fabric.
This High Temperature version of the kit is designed to withstand temperatures of up to 180 °C, as encountered in hot engine bays, exhaust systems (within reason) and heat shields.
This Carbon Mods Carbon Fibre Skinning Starter Kit™ contains everything you need to take an original part (made from plastic, metal or any other material), cover it with genuine 2/2 twill carbon fibre and finish it to a high gloss.
Please note the above video relates to the standard size kit, not this special large one. All techniques are the same though.
Skinning a part with carbon fibre will enhance its appearance and greatly increase its strength and is a viable alternative to the more complicated approach of making an all-carbon fibre replacement part where volumes are small (such as one-offs) and cosmetic appearance, rather than weight saving, is the primary objective.

What results can I expect?
All the materials, supplies and techniques supplied as part of the skinning kit are completely capable of producing professional quality, saleable parts. However, like any practical task (such as repairing a scratch or dent on your car or fitting a stereo) perseverance will be required to produce parts of the highest quality. As you gain skill and experience the quality of the parts will increase and the time taken to make them will decrease.
As with all Carbon Mods starter kits, the skinning kit is accompanied by comprehensive instructions that take you through the process of skinning your parts from prep all the way to polish.
