    Hey everyone,

    I recently purchased a 2001 Modulus Quantum 5. The graphite neck has a couple chips in the lacquer - Is this something that can be filled or repaired? Thanks!

    EDIT: I meant to type lacquer, not laminate.

    That's clearcoat that's chipping, not carbon fiber. Just a cosmetic issue. If you want it repaired properly it requires removing the old clearcoat and respray.
     
  3. Hi.

    What MPU said.

    Almost looks like someone has tried to re-fin the neck but has used non compatible epoxies or skipped the prepping.

    Regards

    That can be repaired by drop filling with CA glue. It is much less expensive than stripping and shooting the neck. It is invisible when done correctly.

    Also it's not lacquer, likely polyester. Super-thin superglue can be wicked in at the edges of the chips to discourage further chipping. The white-ish areas at the edge of the chips are no longer adhered to the substrate.
