Materials required for this modification

  • Screw driver set
  • scissors ( sharp/new )
  • Blade ( sharp/new )
  • Carbon fiber vinyl ( 2x4 feet enough )
  • Scale
  • Cloth for cleaning ( Tissue will do too )

* New/sharp scissors and blade give nice smooth edges and cutting is easier too. Especially while trimming extra vinyl edges a sharp blade is much much better then an old used one

Caution

The blade that i used or the new razor blades are very sharp and they cut through skin without you knowing until you start seeing blood dripping on your work

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Getting Ready

  • Remove every thing from the case that can be removed and place them in the case box so u have easy access inside the case and things dnt get scratched for nothing.
  • Measure the part with a ruler that you want to apply carbon fiber on.
  • Cut the carbon fiber vinyl a lil extra then required like (0.5 inch extra) just to be on the safe side.
  • Clean the surface with a cloth/tissue to make sure that there is no dirt so that vinyl gets a good grip on surface.

Step 2: Applying CF and Final Looks

* Some people use credit cards or PVC cards to smooth out the vinyl i use my thumb. Cards sometimes if pressed hard against the vinyl can damage or ad scratches.

* Take your time and set the initial angle/ place to start applying the vinyl. If start goes well end will be well. ( Take your time, you can take even more then me :D )

* You can also use a hair dryer to help you with uneven surface like the engraved text ( Like the NZXT logo on the reservoir rack ). Heat the vinyl it makes it flexible and then push it with your thumb to settle in.
