Product Description

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.

Video Guide

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.

Kit Contents
  • 1sqm 2/2 Twill 3k Carbon Fibre Cloth (1.5m x 1000mm - allow for fraying at the edges)

Uses for This Kit

Use this kit to cover a wide range of parts in and around your vehicle, or just about any other item that would look stunning with a genuine carbon fibre finish.

Use this kit to:

  • Cover plastic interior mouldings and trim such as centre consoles and door handle mouldings
  • Cover plastic exterior mouldings such as wing mirrors, rub strips and bumper inserts
  • Cover metal parts such as slam panels
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.

Comprehensive Instructions

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.

How can you order a colored carbon fiber, as you would to the smaller kits?
Carbon Mods Reply: Just put a not on the checkout page to say that you would like one of the coloured fabrics instead. We can supply this for no extra charge.

hi guys very good piece of kit, just want to know if this technique could be used on mdf as im building my so a kit car and would like to cover the body work in your product in stead of skinning it with aluminiam. would this be a problem thanks
Carbon Mods Reply: Hi, you can certainly skin over MDF; is your plan to use the MDF as a pattern and then remove the MDF from inside or do you intend to leave the MDF in there? - It's not clear from your question. If you're using the MDF as a pattern then the normal procedure would be to seal it, then release coat it and then pull a mould off it. Once you have your mould you could laminate the part using resin and carbon fabric. Drop me an email if you want more details.

can i just say, i think this is a brilliant peice of kit. i was wondering after everything has been done (after all the sanding and the polsihing) how much extra thickness will have been added onto the base material? i ask because i am wanting to do this to something that requires it to not be to thick or else it wouldn't fit back together
Carbon Mods Reply: Good question and I know exactly what you mean. The 'skin' adds about 1mm of thickness to the original part so if you can get away with 1mm you should be OK. Sometimes things do fit tightly together and the extra 1mm would be problematic.
