            update so far - ive seen someone on here do there carbon wrap so its like a glass finish - but now i cant find the thread to it, i think they applied a resin and then laqured it.
            now ive taken it to a bodywork shop to get it laqured and the guy there said he doesnt think it will work, he thinks that when the laquer makes contact with the vinly it will just damage it have a nasy reaction, so what we are in the process of doing is i have left him with a sample of wrap to laquer and see what happens, i will get the results tomorrow fingers crossed it will work.
