yeah I hated the wood that used to be there...

that blue on the trim like that reminds me of those cheezy one piece colored seat covers by APC lol
Thanks for your honest opinion.

What size did you get to wrap the trim? I wouldn't mind trying this out but shipping from metrorestyiling kills it for me.
I got 48x48 from there, and shipping was only a few dollars, where do you live??

Id say your car would stand out with a different set of rims. Either aluminum or black wheels, but the blue puts it over the top.

If you like it though, that's all that matters! This coming from a guy who likes the simple looking upgrades for a more clean stockish look
thanks, to each his own :-)

yeah my first try, I got much better towards the end, but the corners all looked good when I was done, then they turned back into the stretched bad looking corners :-(

I consider trying blue carbon on a Deep Sea Blue car. But in my case your specific blue will not work well... I wonder if they make it in darker colors.
yeah I have not seen it in a darker color, but maybe you could find it somewhere!

well I thought about the shifter ,but then there are the paddle shifters on the steering wheel which look impossible to wrap, so I just left it to match the paddle shifters.

I find it highly pleasing to the eye though personally, and could appreciate the hard work and love that went into it.
So long as you love it every time you take the helm, that is all that matters right?
yes sir! thanks for the kind words :-)
