Any chance of a photo of your diffuser? How much was it if you don't mind me asking?

Got it dipped about a year ago. Think it was around 100 but he had to prep the diffuser as there were a few scrapes on it.

Looks nice, I lacquered over my carbon vinyl and it makes a huge difference.

if you are buying by the metre I would suggest ordering 1.2M x 2M that would give you plenty left and it is quite cheap anyway and as was said before you want the carbon pattern all flowing in the same direction., If you need any more info then drop me a PM.

That looks fantastic. I've always liked carbon but wrap never looks real because it's not glossy. Yours however, looks convincing with the clear coat.

It really comes up well when its clean. It hasnt faded or discoloured and its been on about a year now. Mite get the interior trim panels done but few other things on the list first.
