Hey guys. I was just curious if anyone here has ever used MDI carbon parts on their bike? I'm getting by bike back on the road after a few years, and thought I'd give it a facelift in the process.
I used to work in a composite shop, so I can be very discriminate on the look and fit of the components. All the stuff I made for my bike has become sunbaked, and I thought it'd be nice if I could freshen it up a bit.

Sux to have bare carbon in the sunlight.
I've had good luck lightly sanding and clear coating with a high quality UV resistant polyurethane clear... many of which are no longer available here in California (sigh...)

DuPont Imron clear TDS
PPG also has a line of clear UV-protecting polyurethanes and catalyzed acrylics.
You can get quarts but it's pricey for either DuPont or PPG
You should talk to an auto paint seller (not a body shop). They have clear coats that protect red and orange from the sun.
