Nice product. I ordered a sample.

Can it be clear coated?

TaylorRyanSS 10-29-2010 10:45 PM

Isn't this 3M DI NOC? It looks like it. I did my bowties and engine cover with this stuff and I also clearcoated it a couple times.

Sure does.

Cmlloveless 10-30-2010 12:07 AM

Yea the only real difference I noticed on your site was that it says that this stuff can be removed without damaging what it was on. To me that sounds like it just doesnt stick as well...

nitto85 10-30-2010 12:13 AM

A camaro body completely covered in carbon fiber would be so sick.

Cmlloveless 10-30-2010 12:17 AM

Oh P.S. That is a very nice Aston Martin, not sure why someone with the money for a car like that would want to put any kind of fake carbon fiber on it!!

The sample should go out Monday, you should have it toward the end of the week. Somebody asked on another forum we sponsored yesterday. I don't think clear coating it would work, we have not tried it. You could always try with the free sample and see how it goes.

No, it is not 3M Di Noc, it is better and a for automotive uses a lot better choice.

No, what it means is that it wont damage what you apply it to when you go to remove it. If you apply 3M Di-Noc to say your roof or interior trim and then go to remove it down the road, you will likely damage what it was applied to. i.e pulling the paint off your roof...

Some of you may have heard of 3M's Architectural Finish called Di-Noc. We also looked into this but given what it was designed for along with its overall properties we determined it was not the best solution for automotive applications.

The Aston Martin is a FIA GT race car being campaigned and sponsored by the manufacturer in Europe - this one was used in a show to show the application of the material on highly complex surfaces more info here

As always, please let us know if you have any questions.

liquidsmoke 10-30-2010 05:11 PM

those bowties look great. Mine are allready blacked out, but i think im gonna switch them to this.

I also have some other ideas for this, are you guys able to pre cut them?

TaylorRyanSS 10-30-2010 06:12 PM

I tried doing my roof with 3M DI NOC a couple months ago but it was too hard. It did not damage the paint when I removed it. I think the 3M is probably just as good, but this stuff seems like it is a little cheaper. I paid $150 for a roll that was barely big enough for the roof.

how did you apply it? water and squegee it out? i can do deals, but something that comes in a square sheet that needs to be custom cut will drive me nuts..
