So I recently shattered a carbon fiber front lip on one of my cars. Decided to try repairing it as the shatter point is about 1-2 square inches. Bought some carbon fiber fabric and epoxy resin and some accessories, seems fairly easy to work with. Anyone else tried this yet? I'll try to post some pics of the repair process...

Good luck! I've shattered numerous lips and never looked at it thinking I could repair it. Hope you figure out a way though! That'll help me out immensely.

For decorative purposes I think repairing carbon composites is fine, but in load bearing applications like with bicycle frames as an example, once there is a defect like a crack, it's better to pitch it and get a new part.

It's one reason I'm eying how that new BMW i3 electric car runs in customers' hands.
