To continue with carbon fiber prep from one of my earlier posts, this is how the carbon fiber edges looked raw:
After wet sanding with 240 grit to remove sharp edges and application of two CA coats.
Not bad, but it can get way better.
Once the glue dried, I wet sanded the glued edges to smooth them out. I started with 400 and used finer grits until I got to 2000.
Now it's time for the fun stuff.

Apologies for the craptacular picture. It was impossibly hard to get the camera to focus because of reflections and highlights on the shiny edges.
Hopefully this gives you some into the process I use for prepping carbon fiber parts. It's time consuming but the results are awesome.
