Laying real cf is a long process but is far more rewarding. You can get cf in various ways too with different weaves. For example my cf interior is a plane weave where as body parts have the more popular 2+2 twill weave.
Damn complicated process but it would be weird to have some carbon fiber and other parts non carbon fiber

On that note hey josh how much it cost you to get your bumper painted I want to get some parts painted without having to ship sadly

My dash is carbon cloth yes. Its a plane weave kit made by remin. Not 100 percent perfect fit but you would have to be looking to find the 1 or 2 minor flaws. Its gel coated one layer with 3m backing. So in a way its like vinyl but its not. If I do custom parts inside I would use a plane weave so it matches.

The hardest thing to do would be make sure you don't get a run in the paint. If you do get runs your whole paint job is practically ruined. There are ways to sand out a run but its not easy. Maybe try practicing on something else first?

Maybe actually paint side moldings?

Painting textured plastic is even harder. First you gotta sand it down all the way to knock down the texture and then put an adhesion promoter primer base coat and finally clear. If you figure out how to do it you can teach me bro. There's a good reason I don't do paint work lol
