@amok727 Do you have anymore photos of your interior? Tan with Carbon Interior is so rare - I only know of you, me, and PlacidBoi.
^Thanks! Yeah, I tried my best to have every single piece going in the exact same direction. I think I did a good enough job lining everything up.

Yep, it's official, I'm going to do this. Looks so much better than the stock silver color.

NICE and CLEAN, good job zmcgovern4!! Did you have to use any kind of adhesive primer at all? Or all you used was the CF wrap and a heat gun? Planning on doing this next week or two and just trying to get all of the supplies together, thanks.

I didn't use a primer. I wiped everything down with diluted isopropyl alcohol to ensure that it was clean. The 3M vinyl is very sticky, however I know 3M makes an adhesive promoter of some sort if you are worried about it.

Have you used vinyl before? It looks great! Any tips on doing these pieces? Did you have to use a heat gun? I've never used vinyl before but I was thinking of doing this to get rid of the wood trim in my car for a different look.
