carbon fiber "paint" as you call it is actually a sticker/decal that you put on the body before painting. you can use this http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXPA37&P=7 and put it on the desired place and paint.

So is it just like little pieces thats a sticker and you cut it to shape? I figured thats what people used but have only seen it in automotive stores in big rolls. That would be cool to buy it in small pieces.
