Default 3M Carbon Fiber vinyl wrap+ideas

Hey peeps,
So I am just looking for imaginative and creative out of the sky ideas, for applying this great product.
Whether inside or outside the car.

It's a very good quality carbon fiber wrap. My rims are plasti-dipped in black, so I was thinking of removing it and applying the vinyl instead, but I'm afraid it'll loose the deep dark black look.

I also thought of applying this vinyl to the rear spoiler, although I still didn't decide on which spoiler to go with.
I like it because it clicks with my car's theme, red and black. Here are some recent pics of my car during last weeks snow storm.





What do you guys think would be an interesting places for it to be applied in the interior?
Or would it make the car un-classy and toy-ish looking?

Can't wait to hear all the ideas.

You could put it on the door sills (or pillars whatever you prefer to call them) and for interior you could wrap whatever is woodgrain. I've seen it done, looks cool but I haven't seen it done to an LS. If you're trying to be more "sporty" looking I'd say go for it. Our cars are based on our tastes not those of others, if you like it that's all that matters. I thought of doing it to mine, but I am black on black and it'd probably have a different effect than it would against the tan.

Agreed 100% with Ultm8. If you like it do it! As for me, I love the red cherry wood on black. It's classy IMO.

Wise words.
I'll only do what seems to make me think it's beautiful, none the less I was just looking for some creative ideas that I might not have thought of.

White Carbon Fiber maybe?.. Things like that.


Oh yeah, and your totally right about the CF pillars, I had those in mind but forgot to mention them.

They actually have red and yellow(ish) CF that may go with the tan interior
