Re: VIS Carbon Fiber Hood

might need to be wet sanded and cleared, might be too far gone for buffing. If it can be buffed, that won't last long before it starts to discolor again.
are the top corners cracked at all? is there any delamination around the edges?

an Iphone4 is worth roughly 100 bucks right? how much cash you gonna have to add to this deal?

If it has none of the above mentioned damage, I wouldn't pay more than $250-$300 total value knowing that you might have to have it clear coated.

i see what you mean on too far for buffing because there are some white spots on the hood. i have not seen the hood in person and it's good that you brought those questions up. i will find out and let you know.

an iphone4 is worth 150-200 here.. and the cash im willing to add is from 100 to 150 only.

another question, after being restored and clear coated.... will this problem occur again in the future?

Re: VIS Carbon Fiber Hood

Yes, if not maintained, a carbon fiber part will always fade and need to be re-done.


I had my trunk wet sanded and professionally re-cleared the day I got it. 4 years later and it's just starting to fade. This is with the car being kept under a cover for nearly 1.5 years total.... So expect it to happen faster on a daily driven car.



Sidenote - I believe I know that car from PO... wonder if he's selling...

Re: VIS Carbon Fiber Hood

looks pretty worn, probably need to be recleared like everyone else here is saying.

with a worthy clear that would run about $200-300 for the refinishing of the hood.
most shops use cheaper clears though..... so $150-200

either which way, your looking at spending $400-500 on a used VIS hood, why not just buy one new for that price and wax it once a week, or clear it eventually, but you should wax it once a week to keep it extra protected anyway...
