Recreating Sheen on Carbon Grip- Help!!
Posted by: Andrew Nichol (---)

Is there any way to re-apply a sheen to a carbon fiber grip? I got a small touch of super glue on a grip that I didn’t see putting down a sticker/logo. It dried (out of my field of vision). Without thinking I took a bit of acetone, to try and get it off and it took some of the sheen of my carbon grip. The handle grip kinda looks camo now. The rod is fully built and I’m mortified I just ruined it, trying to put that last little touch on the project. Anything I can do?

Put a touch of --- [www.amazon.com] -- on the blank or spot. Let it dry and buff it a bit for a nice sheen.

Take care

Give it a coat of Permagloss. Apply while Turing using a foam brush. Very easy and quick, and looks great.
