Talking Blue Carbon Fiber Trim

I wrapped my interior in some blue carbon fiber. I love the look and the way that it turned out. I would say that it was near perfect right after I finished installing everything, but it has \been on for a month or two, and I am noticing some of the corners no longer look as perfect and the edges have started to pull off a bit. Not really sure why, I may try to re-wrap a few pieces.

enjoy

I like the route you took with the contrasting, especially the rims, but i think maybe its a bit much on the inside.. It's your car though, so just take everyone's opinion and be you. It's better than any type of wood you could have in there though, that's for sure...

dont like it. i think this was one of those things that sound and look better in your head until it's actually done.

that blue on the trim like that reminds me of those cheezy one piece colored seat covers by APC lol

This looks amazing! Good job!

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 think you did a great job on the wrap. It adds just enough color to the inside.

It actually looks interesting cuz your whole car is blue lol. But that being said its too much blue. Almost looks like one of those cars that are at the autoshows with everything single thing changed

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

I'm liking this very much!! Looks great with the exterior blue... The standard carbon fiber is getting too common now....

Extremely beautiful. No doubt, the success if this color depends on how well the blue of the interior works with the blue of the exterior. In your case it is just perfect.

No. Like the rest of the car- but that is too much. Almost reminds me of interior spraypaint. I purchased a 97 Supra with that stuff and it was HELL on the eyes.
