Update to my mods list. CF Wing, Color Matched Front Reflectors, and now the CF wrapped interior trim.

Some of you might remember I did my interior trim in Ford Sonic Blue as it was the closest rattle can I could match to the Montego Blue exterior color.
See Below (pic is from Wuste 2011):

After a year, its been wearing off and chipping like a mofo due to the terrible quality of the clear coat I used. So rather than redo it AGAIN the same way as before, I decided to fix it with Carbon Fiber Fabric because it emulates the ///M leather interior. Whole interior took something like 6 hours to complete, start to finish in one day. Total pain in the ass to do but $80 for the fabric plus the spray adhesive vs $1300 for the real deal from the factory, you tell me if it was worth it.

Anyone considering doing this over the vinyl wrap (because it IS better, trust me on that), be PATIENT. It takes time and shouldn't be rushed otherwise it'll turn out like crap. If you can manage to take your time, it'll look and feel a lot better than the vinyl sticker garbage.

Here's the product itself, I got 2 yards of the Matte Charcoal to match the ///M Leather as close as possible.
