gaza01,
yes! you have to achieve a good finish from the can, no runs ect then light rub with 1200 w/d and light polish with a compound.

When I'm doing small parts like this I make up a little oven from a large cardboard box, make a hole in the side to fit a small hair dryer, pre-heat and put the parts inside to dry.

With all the dust in my garage they'd come out looking like a pair of Yetti Boots if I tried that

My CF wrap doesn't look too bad either, not as prone to scratches as paint etc.

Damn, this is exactly what I was planning on doing.
I just know that it'll take me longer than a weekend to complete, and I can't drive around with a dismantled car lol.

Great job tho
MUCH better looking than a vinyl wrap.
