View Full Version : Can you paint carbon fiber...

I want to paint my vertical 3d fin. Can I just roughen it up a bit, prime it, and then paint it like anything else?
Or do I need to go throught some insane process of preperation?

Hmm I was thinking about just that today when looking at mine. I bet if you roughened it up a bit then shot it, it should turn out alright!

I painted the fins on my Fury and they turned out fine. Just wet sand with some 320 then 400 sandpaper, prime then paint.

It can be done...I have seen some of the Canopy painters do matching fins...I just dont know of the proper procedure.

be sure to claen it real good with acetone or alcohol if you have had them on your heli they will soak up some fuel in the fibers
