Whoa! Looks like that sander got away from ya a couple of times. :o

Make sure to sand it both directions for an even finish and better upwind performance. :thumb:

If you wet it with water does the colour come back ?
If so spray it with a good clear lacquer

This is the back end of one of my speed boards which I lacquered to get the carbon to look good
