First off- I have some skills with my hands but have never tried anything like carbon wrapping door handles.
I made a blue tape rough template- cut the film to approximate size-made a first attempt armed with razor knife, torch, spray bottle, scraper and a plan.
Okay ..... tough working with so many compound curves. first attempt came out "crap level nine" learned a few lessons.
second attempt- a little more careful wielding the torch.... "crap level 6" but made definite progress.
Never say die attitude lead to attempts 3,4,5....... crap, crap, crap but at least down to "crap level 1 or 2"
I ripped it all off and came in to take a second look at your pictures.
Damn you did a great job!!!
I will make another run at it this weekend because as PITA as it was... i was still having fun.
