Roll this or straight in?
For this gun stock the customer wants a carbon fiber (naturally...ugh) pattern. To prevent a seam on the top I have done the top in a brushed stainless accent and that top will remain taped off for the carbon fiber dip (the second photo below shows how the top is done). I do not want a seam on the bottom as it will be impossible to get the carbon fiber weave to match in two dips so my question is would it be best to roll the dip from one side to the other or dip it at a steeper than 45-degree angle going in from the front to the back? My concern on going in from the front to the back is the amount of stretch that will occur since it is a tight weave carbon fiber pattern. I have typically done stocks in other busier patterns in two dips, but that is not feasible in this case so I am curious what others have done in similar situations. Thanks for the help!
