Default carbon fibre effect shock bodies

This is purely for comestical purposes although the overall effect is very nice and looks very nice indeed with Green springs. My apologies for the poor images as they were taken using a mobile phone camera. The entire set of shock bodies were covered in this carbon fibre film at a very cheap price.

The photos are poor as the shock bodies with the carbon film very nice. The film is available from car accessory shops. Although there are alot of inferior products on the market, the one I used is made by Foliatec and is the best brand by far. A key thing to remember is, when you apply the film make sure when it wraps around the shock body and meets back at the staring point that it does not overlap. This is to ensure you do not double up the layer of film as it is then hard to apply shock spacers as the overall circumference of the shock body will have increased. I will try and P.M better pictures to give you a clearer idea.
