Just wash as normal but be careful not to get too close to the edges with a jet wash as its been bonded ontop of the original grille.

Look after as paintwork

Ah ok mate


Don't worry pressure washer doesn't come close to the paint work anyways, only for wheels and snow


Ah cool, was just wondering as when I removed the sticker plate the carbon looked a bit "fresher" and slightly darker underneath, guessing that uv light for you though :/

Thanks mr carbon

Haha no probs pal, the difference in colour will be the sunlight affecting the clear coat gel............few passes with a polisher should fix that.

Also watch out for minus freezing temps as CF dosn't really like that either

Ah ok
will tuck it up when it's looks abit cold then
what will the cold temp do?

Thanks as always mate, your knowledge on this stuff is second to none


Chris
Can seperate the CF from the original surface if it gets too cold & left out for days on end.

Its just ensuring theres no breaks in the edges that could let moisture in, whizz the grille off and just have a good look around the edges & you'll easily spot any potential probs, then touch up with black paint if necessary
