I know they make it, because I've seen it before. I just don't have a clue where to pick the stuff up...

Can anyone help me out??

or do a search on 1/24 carbon fiber decals on a search engine

Like I said in the other forum, try searching for Carbon Fiber Tape... its real carbon fiber, used for R/C Aircraft spars externaly to the wing, it has strength in the PULL direction, but it flexes like paper... (cant make a suspension plate out of it).

Ahhh, I just made my own :) I forgot I have some decal paper from when I made my Rally Imprezza body. I'll just print it out & stick it on that way :)

Here is the pic incase any of you want to do the same & make your own fake carbon fiber look pieces :D

I use full-sheet decal paper...it's just a 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of sticker paper...print it, cut it out, & stick it on. The drawback to this is if you don't have a high resolution printer, the printouts will show it.

Here is what I use: http://www.avery.com/products/add_to_cart.jsp?upc=7278205265&catalog_code=WEB01

Water transfer decal paper is available too. Probably at your hobby shop.
