So it seems that i'm late in the game here, but the car looks great! I was just thinking how you said you did one panel each night after work. Were you driving around with a half blue and half matte black car?

Thanks
the 3M DiNoc is rated for 4 years outdoors / 12 years indoors from 3M. they guarantee it unless you live in a UV crazy place like Arizona. I just got some of it for my car, wrapped the dash, door sills, and mirrors. it came out pretty good and is fairly easy to work with, just takes time.

DiNoc is only meant for interior flat surface applications. Plus it's very expensive. I do not recommend this product to be used on a vehicle. If you are looking for a good quality carbon fiber film, try Avery's Black Carbon Weave. I used this to wrap my window pillars.

I read over this thread and can't seem to figure out the best wrap to get?

I want CF not matte black, which one is worth getting so when I apply it to my car it won't F the paint up or anything... I wanna do my hood first and see how it comes out

3M

I wrapped my entire hood in the 3M controltac (same adhesive as DiNoc) and removed it with a heat gun to re-do. The paint was perfect, and it came off easily with a heat gun. I don't have any experience with any other product, so can't give you a good comparison, but I love working with the 3M, I am a 1st timer vinyler.

the paint is not going to be damaged if your car's paint is properly cured and you don't wait few years to take it off. The damage only happens and some chances but not in all cases.

you can check here:
http://www.stickercity.com/matte_white_vinyl_wrap.html

even if you buy a quantity of 50 that will be $500, but you don't need that much, I haven't done the calculations yet.

There is also a handfull of people on this board that supply it.
