Hey, mind if I ask who did the wrap? Any pics? I have the wood too and would definitely prefer something else.

i have jet black on black interior and wood trim just does not cut in for me. brushed black metallic looks much better in my opinion.

Looking good!!! it will be nicer if the a/c trim can do horizontal pattern IMO. I also wrapped mine in brushed finished too. just cant stand with saddle brown with wood trims

Yes, that was my original plan but when i got the material it only came with 1 yrd in width which is not enough for A/C trim as it is longer than a yard.
