Carbon Fibre Kidney Grills

So with the long weekend, finally had some time to do the CF Kidney grill wrap. Apologies for the crappy pics, but was taken with my iPhone camera! First had to take out the Chrome bits:

With one firm tug the Grill comes out of the bumper, the mustache comes off with 3 x T20 screws each.

Next I measured out the 3M vinyl for each piece:

I cleaned the pieces with alcohol to ensure no oils prevent the glue from sticking, did the mustache first and compared the look, mmmm....

Finally did the two bottom pieces. They were very tricky with the bends around the corners, but it all came out quite nice IMO.

Put everything together again and this was the final product.
