DJ Gives His Technics 1200 MK2 Turntable The Carbon Fiber Look
One customer of ours put aside some extra 3M DI-NOC carbon fiber vinyl that he ordered from us, and decided to wrap his Technics 1200 MK2 turntable plinth.\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nAside from the carbon fiber vinyl, Will’s 1200 MK2 turntable is modified in a variety of other ways. He has a real carbon fiber straight tonearm from Jesse Dean of Tempo Records. On top of that, he also has modified LED lighting, a custom-painted platter, and a variety of other little modifications…making this turntable one-of-a-kind. Here’s some more pictures:\r\n\r\n
\r\n\r\nWill thought the material was easy to install, but was sure to add that using a heat gun was indispensable. He said it turns the material into a stretchable film that felt like a wallpaper sort of material. He wish he had used an squeegee to smooth it out, but was able to make do with a credit card.\r\n
The pictures simply do not do it justice, this stuff looks pretty amazing in person. I’ve been a huge carbon fiber fan since my import car days, and even have a carbon fiber toilet seat in my house…I was a little apprehensive about a carbon-look film but I’m very happy with how it turned out.
\r\n\r\nAnother tip that Will provided was that he had cleaned the surface with alcohol prior to installing. He’s already wandering his house looking for other things he can install the material on!\r\n\r\n
