Want to shorten my carbon cans...

Just wondering how exactly to do this, I've seen before and after pics but no step by step ones...I saw that some people mentioned using a hacksaw but the kinda makes me apprehensive about fraying or destroying the fibers in the carbonfiber. Am I being to worried about messing this up?

Why are there so many unsolved murders in Kentucky? There are no dental records and everyone has the same DNA
