Fiber print-through effect is a limitation to the use of carbon fiber-reinforced composites to satisfy  'Class A’ surfaces Automotive standard. In this paper, a comparison of actual and future body paint configurations will be performed expecially in order to reduce fiber print-through of the materials after prolonged exposure to accelerated aging tests. The proposed methods include: -evaluation of the epoxy matrix -evaluation of  fiber layers -Influence of layup and production parameters. Conclusions includes a comparison and advantages of alternative configurations compared to a current validated plybook.
