Carbon fiber repair

I have a scuff on my front splitter and don't want to replace it. I have seen a number of 3D, 4D, and 5D (!) carbon look wraps for sale on line.
Does anyone have any experience with this ? Thanks

You can repair it with expoxy resin.

sand the splitter in the areas of the cracks
clean them with alcohol wipes
brush on the resin let dry and brush on more until you get it even

i think you can YouTube a video for the full process

the wrap will not look like the real thing, you'll need to sand and epoxy or clearcoat it and polish it
