Interior trim custom wrapped in Carbon Fiber by oCarbon!

www.ocarbon.com/

INSTALLED PICS!!







More pics, real high qaulity!
http://ocarbon.com/blog/2012/12/a-fe...t-shipped-out/

My "blog" from Matt:
http://ocarbon.com/blog/2012/10/just...et-of-trim-in/

First off, let me start this by saying Matt at oCarbon has been a breeze to work with. Aside from the time to actually do the sanding, priming, wrapping, clearcoating, polishing, and finishing, its been a VERY smooth process (which is to be expected when each piece is done by hand with a VERY meticulous person like Matt).

Matt started wrapping trim work and parts for the Audi scene a few years ago. My younger brother got his interior of his B7 A4 wrapped and i was blown away by the quality, depth and fitment of the parts. At the time, i didn't have the money for that sort of job and figured that it wouldn't fit well in my GR STI interior.

Flash forward a year and a half and Matt is looking to expand his market via Facebook. I had been following him for a bit, looking at a lot of the custom work he does and the pride that he takes in every part he wraps. He also offers Kevlar weaves as well as different weave patterns for his wrap material.

He sent me pictures through the whole process, keeping me up to date with what was going on.

Take a look at some of his galleries of the CTS-V and the Porsche. Those are what really look perfect to me, but i knew that the normal black Carbon Fiber would be the best choice for me.

Some more finished pictures:






My plans are as follows:

Finish installing the normal trim work and then remove some of the trim that is not normally done, including the steering wheel surround, start button ring, iDrive control surround and some other parts and have him wrap those next.

Install/removal is not bad at all. Everything but the console pieces just pull right off. The console isnt even bad either if you have some instructions (which i will be putting together for Matt for his DIY guides).

Please post up any questions/comments!

You will have to talk directly to Matt. He does it on a per-job basis because each application is a little different. He is usually very responsive to emails, so you should hear back quickly.

That does look pretty sick, but it's a bit too expensive for my blood ($800 + $300 refundable core, according to their site).

According to their website, the e90 kit is 800 with a $300 core deposit. I would happily pay that price if it includes the whole kit (and if i were looking to purchase the whole kit) as i was let down by the goldish tint of the OEM pieces. However, it is unclear what this amount includes as the description seems to be linking to that of an A3. I've emailed Matt and will post what I find out (with his consent).

B1aze, do you have any vested interest in the company (just figured it would be best to get all of the appropriate disclosures up front). thanks!

Not a bit. Just was lucky enough to get a chance to work with Matt on expanding his market.

Don't do that. It will be overkill. Looks great as is.

This is not "brushed aluminum". Brushed aluminum is "silver" in color. What you have in your picture is usually referred to as brushed graphite or something along those lines.

Does the OEM CF trim have similar "deep gloss" look? Or is the OEM CF trim more flat in appearance?

This looks great! Where can we order? So 500 after core (existing pieces) are returned, or 800?

$800 and core fee is $300... so you pay $1,100 up front. This looks sick as f$%k but too rich for my blood.
