    find a west epoxy dealer and do your own..$45 for the lot,some will say there not as good but there as good as the skills of the person doing the job,besides its better than not doing it cos there never in stock.just my 2 cents

    WOW, 270 dollars for 20 dollars in carbon and some glue. If your handy you can do this mod yourself for under 70 dollars! Carbon is a lot stronger when it is layered while wet.

    What about just doing layers of fiber glass? Is the Carbon Fiber that much better?

    4 layers of 400gram Carbon fibre is equal to about 40 layers of biaxial weave glassfibre.

    carbon fibre epoxy is far stronger than the glassfibres resin.
