Looks sick! Is that all just overlay? And do you have any pics of the trim from further out?

Default Finally did my interior

So I wrapped my interior trim in the new "Glossy" carbon fiber vinyls. I didn't want the matte look but no way was I gonna shell out $800+ for real carbon inserts. I got them from here:

http://www.topvinylfilms.com/product...yl-1921-4.html

Took me 8 hours only because I was super **** and had to line everything up and cover 100% of the wood. The curves were hard to do. Hair dryer helped a lot. Had to drive the car without a center console. That was fun! I think they turned out pretty good..

Not super glossy but I wasn't expecting that. I think it looks great especially for $35 shipped

I would just get some 3M DINOC CF wrap, a heat gun/blow dryer and some of that 3M Primer 94 (works wonders on curved surfaces) and do the wrap. Just remove the parts you want to cover and be careful with the blade when your cutting it and you should be good
