I have a Kore carbon seatpost in a matt effect and would like it to be shiny / laquered to match my bars and stem (sad I know :roll: ). Can you apply rattlecan laquer or is there a problem with solvents etc ? Any other method perhaps to "polish" it ?

I don't see why you can't just rattle can it? Others will know better than me

its fine to clear coat carbon but make sure you rub it down with 800 wet and dry to give the lacquer a key
