Are you sure the carbon was not laid up with epoxy resin? If it was the yellow is the resin as it aged in the UV. Nothing will get rid of the yellowcolor if that is the case..

To combat that problem, GM uses some fancy $50,000 a gallon clear on the ZR-1 carbon fiber roof. ( or so the media reported at the introduction fo teh ZR-1)

How does it look sanded and then wet with water?
If it shows yellow in water that is how it will look cleared
Pictures would be cool to see.
Here's one I did ...
