Carbon Fiber Interior with Clear Coated

Hey guys, I think the carbon fiber vinyl wrap is a moderately easy and cheap mod to make the interior of your car look so great. I was just wondering have any of you guys tried using a clear colored spray paint and coated your interior a couple layers to give that carbon fiber a more real look to that of the actual carbon fiber panels? If so can I see some pictures

I was thinking how that would look also.. although the carbon vinyl (3M di-noc) is not exactly smooth, it would take quite a few coats to get a flat surface, along with possible sanding in between clear coats. I think the actual process would be a little more work than just spraying clearcoats onto the vinyl. Also not sure how the vinyl would react to the chemicals in the clearcoat spray...

do light layers and quick, over spray will make your cf wrap look black and no longer give the weave cf look
