How Hydrographics Work: Carbon Fiber Look [Video]
text size: A- A+
The process can be used in a number of applications, but we’re only interested about what they do with it in the customizing world.
Here you have a video released by HighTechCorvette for PDN showing how Camaro tuning specialists Fastlane apply a carbon-fiber look to a front chin splitter for the fifth-gen muscle coupe.
The graphics are transferred from a special film that sits in water. The part you want coated is then dipped very slowly and the carbon-fiber design sticks to the splitter.
In this case, since the splitter is so long, the process is done in two stages, once for each half. The other side is masked and taped off, so you get a symmetrical pattern from one side to the other.
