    Carbon Fiber problem....please help!

    Okay, so this hood was nice and glossy when I got my bug eye in 2008.....what can I do to get rid of this haze?? I've tried a buffer and several different polishing/cleaning products but the hood refuses to shine. The nose seems to be the way the rest of the hood should be so I am at my wits end with this....these (as you know) not cheap!! Any advice is greatly appreciated.Click image for larger version.

    it's oxidized... you'll have to wet sand it.

    edit: Looking around, it looks like some people have had success with polishing compounds...

    Take it to a paint and body shop, have them buff the hell out of it and re-clear coat it.. or just put some actual paint on there so it will be protected from the sun.
