I think that looks sick! That is my style, it won't be flashy enough like carbon fiber for some, but I lean towards things that are different but not flashy.

Awesome choice from the looks of that shot. You have more pics of the dash and doors and stuff?

I agree, i simply don't like the carbon fiber vinyl. dinoc or 1080... its too flashy and obviously fake.
I like this brushed black, also the brushed steel is very nice too.

I will take some more photos soon and share.





apology for the crappy iphone photos

yes, i did it myself.

the e92 is pretty easy to do a wrap on. Takes a couple of hours to remove the interior and prep. maybe 4 hours for the whole process.

I'm real happy with this brushed black appearance. It's different and subtle.

I think it was only 3 or 3.5 running ft of film. so 3.5x5 ft.
since its directional film, you have to line it up properly.
lay all the pieces out on the film first and trace out your shapes before cutting.

hey don, if you're getting wrinkles because you didn't heat the vinyl and stretch it around the corners. A light stretch is all that is needed. proper squeegees, and most importantly the prep and proper use of primer is needed to keep it lasting long! Patience is key to a good install

and you can't stretch too much otherwise you get distortions in the vinyl texture.
