i have to agree.

the section of the bezel where it meets the steering column shaft tunnel looks ragged and poorly done from the amount of folding and tucking you had to do w/ the carbon fiber wrap in order to get it to wrap around.

You didn't go crazy with the carbon? Is that a joke? You have a carbon fiber vented hood lol. And I just noticed the chrome trim around the headlights....arghh please kill it with fire!

That's incorrect. I have looked at the entire DI-NOC catalog. There are HUNDREDS of different patterns in it. In addition to the dry carbon, there is also a shiny/coated carbon and a silver/white carbon.

The door handels were easy. Go ahead and do it if her nails do mess it up take it off. But i think it adds to the interior.

This was really hard to wrap but I did learn a cople of things when I did this. I think ill rewrap it when I have some more spare time. I like it now but not totally happy with it.

Now this I was told by a painter from a body shop. Now he said that hes cleared this before and I trust him because I really know him. I know for a fact that hes cleared over the other types of materials. But it does also come in other forms (shiney , different colors)

the cf lines in the ash tray don't follow the rest, & think you should have done the cup holder.
