This stuff stretches more than I was expecting. How tight do you need to pull it/stretch it before you glue it down around the back of the trim?

you don't really need to pull very tight, as long as you happy with the all the front surfaces and corners result and since the backs are all hidden, you don't really need to get it nicely done, just make sure it secure enough...

Guys as summer is coming, my wraps aren't looking so hot. What's the secret to getting them to stay glued? I scuffed and alcohol'd before I glued the wrap. Crap!

Awesome!

Has anyone tried the silver carbon fiber wrap? I was thinking that actually might look really slock over top my aluminum with the coral red/black. I was going to go black or charcoal but I feel like it quiets the interior down too much. Thinking the silver might be just the ticket, tho I'd like to see some pics before I took the plunge.

I just did my console and dash this past weekend. I still need to do my door panels.

My post is on page 4 with the Silver CF Wrap over my woodgrain finish.
