Exclamation HELP!!!! Carbon Fiber Repair Shops????

Hey Guys, I need some help. I ruined my carbon fiber GTS front lip trying to go over a parking lot drive way. (ironic that I was trying to put it in a lot so nothing happens to it as opposed to street parking)

Bottom line: Please suggest shops that fix carbon fiber in Northern Jersey or that are relatively close.

Damage: its not fractured but the clear coat is all chipped up along the bottom edge.

Please reply here or call/txt me 973-479-3213 as I want to fix this asap.

thanx

Paint either gloss black or body color. You can take it to a body shop have them sand it down enough not to damage the CF weave and have them re-clear it. GL

it the fiber itself is cracked, it cant be fixed... you would have to paint over it.... i know this because my CF rear bumper got a love tap and i couldnt fix it.... I had to bite it and spend another 3k :/
