Carbon Fiber/ Clear Coat
For people who have bought Carbon Fiber parts for your bikes, did you have it clear coated or did you install it as is on the bike?
I took my belly pan to a local paint shop today and he actually recommends that I do not have it cleared. He said that the gel coat that is currently on there is more durable than clear is and if I would add clear I would just run the risk of chipping in the clear from rocks etc.. I (myself) had always though that clear offered a layer of protection and that it would prevent the carbon from yellowing, am I wrong?
Could any shed some light on this please?
Ps. Don’t forget to take the poll.
