3m carbon fiber wrap

Hi,

i'm working on wrapping the interior trim with 3m carbon fiber wrap and what comes to my mind is:
what to use to clean this once it goes in the car?

Thank you.

I personally like the after market carbon fiber fits that are available for our cars, they look like they should of came out of the factory with it.

It's vinyl, so any interior cleaner will work just fine.

i did clean the surface properly with alcohol before applying, i was referring after you apply and it is installed in the car.
i guess wet rag will do.

Thank you guys.

Thank you guys.

It's very durable vinyl and there's really no way you can easily damage it. Any good regular interior cleaner will do the trick. I personally use the Inzett Cockpit Premium from DetailedImage.com - It's the best cleaner ever.

Mequiar's Quik Interior Detailer works great on vinyl. Natural Shine is good if you want to put a protectant that isn't all shiny and greasy looking.

do not use windex the ammonia in the solution will cause issue with the tack. Use a 50% of the 70% rubbing alcohol with water.

Now to clean the vinyl. Chemical guys sell a solution for matte vinyl and paint both soap and detailer. That does a pretty good job on both interior and exterior of my car.
