if that is the case of epoxy, then there is no way to solve the prob....as the epoxy is already hardened.
I hope the blemish on the cf is just surface blemish....which can be polished off.

How come the problem wasnt spotted during the buying the spoiler?

It was all good, I think after 2 weeks it expose to sun light Malaysia's hot weather it became like this. But it came too soon than expected.

Due to our hot and pouring weather, it is always advisable to get it coated as the lacquer layer in carbon fiber is thinner than in conventional paint. In your case, first polish it then do a coating thereafter. I did on mine, so far still looking good as new.

Guys, an update, I polished it and can't seem to remove it away. I am thinking send it to paint shop and ask the situ wet sand it and spray with a high grade lacquer, what you guys think?

if you are using laquer, ask for those with UV stabilizer...

Prevent from being yellowish....
