Can carbon fiber be refinished? I am interested in buying a used carbon fiber part which has very light surface scratches. Can this be buffed out and if so what products are recommended? I have never owned anything carbon fiber before so pardon my ignorance.

I have not worked too much around CF but my understanding is the finish is just resin--you should be able to use rubbing coumpound to get the heavy scratches and then buff it out with a finer compound--if the scratches are really bad I imagine you can wetsand it then buff it out. I would treat the finish of the CF to be more like refinishing plastic--anybody please correct me if im wrong

Ive got a spare piece of CF laying around-- i can see if that does the job or not

That I am not sure of. I would think so since it is a full cure item. It should be able to be scuffed and reapplied. I haven't done much with it so someone else may have more info on that.
