CF vinyl wrap on interior pieces?

I have the terra cotta interior and was wondering your opinions on wrapping the woodgrain in CF? Has anyone seen it and if so, how does it look? Or any other ideas on what to wrap it with?

Thanks!

Does terra cotta have a coarse feeling to it? Not familiar with it.

It does have a tough kind of texture. Maybe it's not called terra Cora but its the darker brown color.

if you do it, spend the extra coin and go with Di-noc. Spraying glue is a mess and it ends up taking a very long time as you have to sit and wait for everything to dry.

Ive heard 12 sq feet, but i havent purchased anything yet or tried yet. Im going to later on.


A note to all:

I have made multiple threads about trying to find which CF Vinyl to use on my interior. I wasted countless hours trying to figure it out. So, i ordered a sample (like 2$) of each of the vinyls i was interested in. i will post photos, HOPEFULLY tomoro when they arrive. no promises when lol

And yes, i suggest a 3M product is what you should use. Its almost a "sticker-like" material, with one side sticky. You just press firmly on the vinyl when you have it in place, and use a hairdryer, to make a strong seal. It is 100% removable without any cosmetic damage.

^^All from what i have learned. Dont take my word for it, but 99.9% accurate

If it's your first time get more than 5ft x 3ft. That's what I use for both E90 and E92.

Get 3M dinoc from metrorestyling.com . You will need a 4'x3' , which doesnt leave much room for error but you will have some extra vinyl left over. I have done multiple interiors in CF.
