Carbon Fiber parts

First question: Does anyone know if Dodge Vipers have carbon fiber parts, i.e. hood? etc?

Second Question: I know that CF does not distribute heat, thus could burn the clear/paint.

What would be a good technique for paint correction on CF parts?

First question: Does anyone know if Dodge Vipers have carbon fiber parts, i.e. hood? etc?

If I were to guess, I would say get a temp reading prior to paint correction, do maybe two section passes on a 16 x16 spot inspect the work, if good consider it done, if not, move on to a sheet metal surface, come back to carbon fiber, check the temp again and do two more section passes.

Am I on the right track here? Mike how do you handle carbon fiber?

Sorry I just now found this thread. I try to check this forum every day but so busy all the time.

Here’s the deal with carbon fiber panels or fiberglass panels or SMC which stands for sheet molding composites.

Just don’t buff in one area for too long and you’ll be okay. The heat/damage issue is really only an issue when using a rotary buffer and buffing small areas.

(Don’t ask me how I know)

If you’re using any type of dual action polisher then you’ll be okay as long as you don’t make 100 section passes to an area 16 by 16 .
