how to make glossy carbon fiber look matte.
I am just wondering how this process works. I know that when u have a carbon bike that is nude they apply a gelcoat that helps the carbon fiber. then they follow this up with clear coat to make it shine.. I am just curious as how you go about turning carbon fiber that is glossy into a matte finish, like how the felt f1c is. (One of the best looking bikes i have every seen, I think just because of the matte finish). I assume you need to stripe off all of the clear coat with high grit sand paper but from there on what do u have to do.
Also on some bikes where tubes meet they kind of just finish it with a black look with no weave showing. how would you go about exposing the carbon weave.. would it be just like sanding it down til you come to the gelcoat.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
