Here are some pics of my console and side kits wrapped. I though the layout is nicebecause I didnt go crazy with the carbon.

I think you need a color matched grille to complete this look. It'll help the lines flow better.

you didnt remove the pieces to do that did you? I dont like how it continues up to the arm rest IMO I think you should just slip a razor in between there and remove that piece... did you purposely wrap the center console and sliding tray in different directions? and that cup holder is a ***** to wrap cleanly... that took me a few trys to get perfect
definitely has the potential to look great though

If he used 3M DiNOC, the problem is that it won't match the texture and shine of the CF hood. A painted black roof would look better, imo.

EDIT: Is the roof already covered or painted? Looks like it might be from the last pic.

OP - I like what you're doing with your car! Color match your grill, drop, and wheels are good next steps.

You would be able to wrap it. Its surprising how the material is workable. This was the 3M material.
