Default Aston Martin front lip repair and full re-lamination

Somebody pulled their Vantage a little too close to the curb. I had to repair and re laminate the entire face of this thing requiring a V seam in the center and seaming in the two raised "fangs" It all came out pretty nice. It looks better than the original, wich was done in pre preg. The center will be lined up better on my next one. I hope you guys like it.

Yes, it was a full carbon lip already. It was crushed in the very front. I recreated the front edge with a couple layers of carbon and then wraped the entire thing in 6oz 2x2 twill. It was 6 individual peices of carbon all together that completed the wrap.
