Carbon fiber vinyl sticker
Posted 10 January 2011 - 10:17 AM
So all I did was wipe down the body with a micro fiber towel and cut a section of the sheet to fit body (very simple since it's just a tube). Then I just simply peeled and applied it to the body. Then I turned on my electric stove burner on high and slowly rotated the body with the sticker applied. It then will start to shrink on the body and any holes and slots on the body will be clearly exposed. Then I took my xacto knife and cut out the holes and slots then put it back over the burner. It's actually very durable and the heating process seems to harden it a bit too. I want to experiment a bit more with different styles of bodies. Since your heating the vinyl it melts and can easily conform to any body lines or contours.
and Carbon Fiber Phantom anyone? lol

I want to do the frame aswell but it will be a little bit more complicated. The body and tube weren't a problem cause the edges of the vinyl end under the frame so they can't peel off from wear but I think the frame would be more prone. Unless the edges were under the grips and over the frame so the body sat on it. But I think I will just keep it simple.

bro, nice job, now im actually considering doing it to my vibe.
Just heat it up and apply it slow so it forms to the contours without air bubbles.

I used to be a consultant for hazardous materials, so just giving you a heads up.
Looks great though. I may have to do this myself.

a carbon gun could be done as its strong enouth to work
Carbon fiber is stronger than steel It would hold firing an actual bullet.
Does anyone have an online link to a site that sells sheet of stickers like this?
Maybe start a Occupy Windhelm movement. Start piling up items outside the doors of the house. Those Occupy movements totally changed how banking and society interact so I'm sure it will work for you.
