    Does anyone know where I can get (locally) some Carbon Fiber cloth that's like 2" wide x whatever length? Kind of like a tape or ribbon?

    I need to put a leading edge on a couple home built wooden propellers and would like to use the contrasting color of carbon fiber. Obviously it will have to be applied with resin much the same as working with fiberglass.

    I need likely 15 ft or so of some kind of tape...

    Also - why would you throw out something like that?! You know how terrible I am for hauling your junk away if I think I might use it some day :lol:

    I sourced some in Halifax - at nearly $80 for 12ft of it I'll have to figure something else out though... Thanks for the suggestion.
