Started my Pyspeed CF wrap

Got my titanium glossy silver CF wrap on saturday from Pyspeed.com. Super fast for free shipping. Knocked out quite a few pieces yesterday before I got tied up in early v-day activities. Gonna knock out the rest today. Pics soon.

I'm excited.
What color is your interior?

I've got beige and am torn between silver/titanium/ and regular black.

Thanks

no i haven't. Nobody gets beige. Guess it's an old man's color. Great for me, but I haven't seen a one.

That'll look sweet. I'm patiently waiting for the pictures. *thumbs*

It takes some serious patience... but it is well worth it. I hated the burl and I dont have the kind of cash to buy new trim. This was my best option and I'm very happy with it.

I already have silver trim, but this will add the texture and more details to it as well. ALways wanted to do this, It's on my todo list Very nicely done

I'm sure you'll get the evil eye from other members if you wrap silver find cheap burl and make some money selling your silver trim to cover the wrap, glue, and a couple of 1-1/2inch thick ribeyes.

just did this myself but used the Black 3M Di-Noc stuff. Looks good, and is really easy to work with when its heated slightly. Hardest part is removing the air vents from the trim (80 million clips combined into one big clip) but even that wasnt too hard.

OP, that is F*K'n Gorgeous.

Good job. I've come to the conclusion that whatever color it is, it must be gloss. otherwise, it can run the risk of looking very very tacky.

I'm liking it a lot.

Kudos!

Oh, and thanks for posting the link. Beige does make it infinitely more difficult for me, because I'm matching 2 colors, as opposed to 1. Two, being the top dash is black, and the bottom half is beige.

But nonetheless, thank you for posting,.
