Carbon fiber wrapping

Hey everyone, I'm looking into wrapping the bolt sleeve on my Rev-I to match my cf boomy, but I'm wondering if anyone knows how much thickness the wrap would add to the sleeve. It's already a pretty tight fit and wouldn't want to wrap it only to find out it won't go back in. Any info/advice anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

it wont fit, you could put it on while its still in the gun on parts where it shows and just cut it very carefully to make it look like it.

nope will not work. any kind of sticker you put on there will be way too thick. If you really must match your best bet would be to have it annodized black and then a CF pattern lasered on but even then lasered surfaces are kinda rough so I dont know how well it would seal or it might eat orings.

Hydro dipping might work. Actually that would work really well

Make one out of carbon fiber... instead of just wrapping it

Any idea how thick the coating is?
(not asking to be an *** I really don't know)

If its thin enough hydrodip might work but it would have to be no more than 0.002 (just guessing on the number but that is quite a lot when working with precision fits like in a PB marker)

Idk all I know Is it is thin enough to hydro dip an entire paintball gun and all the pieces still fit together perfectly

If you were able to set up the piece on a lathe, and take off just a small portion of the surface in between the ends, then you should be able to wrap it and still maintain the seal.

If you're interested in getting your gun dipped in hydrographic carbon fiber let me know

The problem with hydrodipping the bolt sleeve is it will look good as long as you plan on never removing it. The first time your remove the bolt sleeve it will scratch the coating right off.

False. The hydrodipping company I know/use uses automotive grade clear coat. It wouldn't scratch easily.

I tend to agree. Although I do question the long term (2+ years) durability. While automotive grade coatings are typically pretty heavy duty they are not typically cycling past an oring 60,000 + times

Yes but I'm pretty sure he doesn't care what the inside of the bolt sleeve looks like. I'm pretty sure the bolt sleeve is static. (Correct me if I'm wrong) So all that would be rubbing against it is the inside which wouldn't matter

I guess that would all depend on what we are all referring to. I assumed that he was talking about using a clear rear section and dipping the bolt. I guess if he is just dipping the rear section then it should work perfectly.

He's just wrapping/dipping the metal body insert so that it matches the carbon fiber on his barrel, so in this case I'd say wear isn't the primary issue; clearance and sealing are.

^^ This is what I thought he was aiming for as well. Even with an automotive clearcoat (and correct me if I am wrong) you would need to make sure you do not cover the bolt in to much clear coat and impede the ability of the sleeve getting back into the gun.
