    1. CD scratch remover ( lol )
    2. Menzerna polish ( med cut )
    3. Menzerna polish ( light cut )

    I have the polish #'s at home as I used them with great results to remove " holograms " off my black V but with tinkering found a great combination to permenantly remove those obnoxious 'half-deep" scratches. Like the one around the volume & tune knob you get after thousands of miles =)
    Razor,

    Menzerna polish numbers??? Please.

    Thanks.

    Rob

    Some pictures of our first set installed. This was done in a custom 4x4 twill fabric.

    Still got a little while to go before we finish those pieces.

    Is the stuff scratch-proof?

    I wouldn't call them scratch "proof." They are clearcoated with automotive polyurethane clearcoat, so they resist scratches.

    All sanded up, these will be clearcoated in a few days and will start to look like a finished product:

    Does the clearcoating protect the CF from UV damage? I remember hearing about the ridiculously expensive clearcoat used on the ZR1's exposed CF.

    The epoxy and the clearcoat have UV inhibitors. The clearcoat we use is about $450 a gallon.

    that's a bargain compared to the clear coat they use on the ZR1 roof.

    That does look sweet, and I don't even care for CF.
