Quality CF will not yellow. Inferior quality CF will.
It has nothing to do with the carbon fiber, it's the epoxy resin(and/or clear coat) that is used that provides the UV resistance and resistance to yellow

I am pretty sure Teashea was referring to the entire CF stack including the resin layer. Consumers usually do not buy just the fiber layer.

I get that, I was clarifying(for people that may not know) that it's not actually the quality of carbon fiber cloth that makes a piece turn yellow, but the quality of the resin used in the layup / top coat of the part.

any chance you have a walk through in installing this piece? there are 2 bolts in the front end, that seemed to be impossible to removed, unless bumper is removed. i hate to removed the bumper when possible. thanks!
