    Hi,

    I’m looking for some advice on how to paint carbon fiber so that the weave is still visible beneath the color.

    I don’t know if it would be better to use light coats of base coat or tint the clearcoat to match the body color. My fear is that the base coat method might not look even and the clear coat method might not match the body color.

    I’m just starting to look for a shop to do the work (full paint job) so I’m not even sure which system will end up being used; it might not even be a base coat – clear coat job.

    Thanks!
