What not to carbonize is the question! After I did mine (inspired by your thread) I had left overs and ended up doing some playstation controllers, tv remotes, put a few pieces on my bow. I thought about putting some around my tv too.

I wanted to get some more to redo the jeep in silver but ran out of any jeep money all summer. I like the black just haven't seen silver carbon on a WJ yet.

Keep up the good work! It bet it's much easier to fix and modify the second time around.

Looks good on the 04 grill! So do you have to add two layers some areas? Does it stick well to itself? I've only worked With real carbon and epoxy, that would be a total pain to overlay. Looks good, I'm looking forward to installed pics!

Well, you ARE keeping the alloy rims on it, right? I still think it's a nice-looking Jeep. Just don't black out the wheels.

I like the grille. It's so subtle. I have the same headlights. If you want a fun project and want to make them look darker with out compromising visibility, I pulled the lights open and plastidipped the fake chrome on the inside. They look a lot darker now and don't cut down visibility at all.

Looks good! murder the whole thing for all I care, it's ya jeep!

Haha pizza cutters. I have been seeing very similar rims on Chevrolets, lately. I wonder is that's what they are?
