CUTTING Carbon Fiber

is there any way to cut through carbon fiber without any severe damages? i know even drilling holes for the hood pins is a delicate procedure.

if anyone is wondering what the hell i would want to cut through cf for: i want to get a cf lip, but they only make them for the 98-00s and there's no way im giving up my 01-02 front bumper for that lip.

INPUT? thanks...

if you are talking about how it "splits/cracks" its sorta like wood, so just place a piece of wood on the finished side making sure that the two are flush with each other, then cut thru the unfinished side, it shouldnt splinter, or at least as much...but you are still going to have a rough edge, only way to make it show possible is if you re-clear it afterwards, and even then im not sure it will look great.

look into getting something customly made for you, its not THAT expensive if you really want it...just supply what they need a mold of.
