Who knows anything about carbon fiber?

I think my carbon fiber parking brake handle is starting to turn on me, it's not a carbon fiber print, it's the real stuff.

Is it from me grabbing it or what? Can you even polish carbon fiber?

I can't get one of it. I don't know if it's the grease from my hand or what. It looks kinda blurry on it.

A little bit of insurance. I've watched cars roll back when parked and the owner running after them.

if it has a clearcoat, then you can apply wax to it and it will prevent it from any sun damage that can turn the material a yellow-ish hue. You can also use some body polish and buff it out a little as long as it has a clear coat.

It might just be a sticker though. How much did it cost you, if you don't mind me asking

I just looked at it on cal-mustang.com and it is real c/f and has a clear coat. so go ahead and buff it out and then apply wax to it on a fairly regular basis depending on how often your oily hands touch it
