Carbon Fiber Wrappers come



Hello! I am looking to test out something carbon wrapped in order to see its potential for being used on a marker! I am looking to wrap an Xbox 360 controller shell in order to test out its likelihood to take abuse!

I am not wanting to break the bank with a test item, but if a wrapper wants to work something out where I make an abuse video showing off his work, I will! I am looking for something in the sub-$10 area.

If you have the ability to wrap, and have some feedback, I am willing to try it out!
-Thanks, Nate

I have done it and it is a pain! but once you get the hang of it, it is easy. as of how it holds up, it holds up pretty well but depends on how many coats of clear you put on the part

No one will do it for free bud. I have done an xbox 360 controller, and they are a pain in the butt. I did one about 2 weeks ago actually, stayed up til 2 am for 3 nights in a row.

this is very easy if you take apart the controller. It has a convenient split top and bottom so you don't have to worry about wrapping it all in one piece. You will get some distortion where it curves around the sides though due to stretching.

I personally don't have any fake vinyl CF at work (we mostly do full color printed wraps) or I'd just do it for free. You can probably get a piece of 3M or Oracal 3D (textured) CF wrap material on eBay and do it yourself. Just go slow and use a hairdryer to stretch it gently. I'd suggest using a spray varnish over top to make it durable.
