I received a part in the mail that was chipped in the clear coat. If this is repairable, where do people take their parts to get repaired?

more pictures (http://www.interactivebs.com/gallery/view_album.php?set_albumName=spoiler) where you can see the box they shipped it in was stupidly too small. And the part doesn't even have clear on the side - there's actually a hole that i can see right through.

thanks

I would call whoever you bought it from and tell them you want to exchange it for one that isn't damaged...

let me guess, Argon creative? I have found no CF repair shops in Colorado. Might want to email oCarbon......

Go to a boat store and you can buy carbon fiber in mats and epoxy

Yep, My Argon Creative product ended up the in trash after 10 days. I've posted multiple reviews on here (even got threatening emails from Argon), but people still pay for their shit. I wish you the best though.

Yup, "kindly suck it".

Yeah i definitely should have searched first. i saw flying tomatoes got his pieces from them and you might have seen that i've been looking for a CF front splitter for a while. It's too bad, i was looking for a good company for these kinds of products.

You can try and trim out the areas where its cracked/flaked tape off the area and just use regular 5 min epoxy to fill in it in. :Let it fully cure and sand it down gradually to 400 or 600 grit wet dry and hit it with some clear coat. will get it back to 99% of orig, if done right you wont ever be able to tell.

I appreciate the offer. I would love the help for sure. I'm happy to do the work with a little guidance.

FWIW, here is what argon told me:

"I would personally suggest some sort of quick setting 2 part epoxy if you think the part warrants it such as Araldite or similar, However the part is bonded completely across the front edge so the chance of failure is marginal."
