dash trim wrapped in carbon fiber film

wrapped my dash trim in carbon fiber vinyl today. looks much better than the wood grain trim imo. first time vinyl wrapping something...not as easy as i thought, but im happy with the results.

It does make a lot of difference once installed. Good mod for the money.

^All carbon fiber'd up! Nice job. Did you only wrap the dash or did you wrap every wood trim piece? How much material did you buy?

+1 as I also have the beige interior and am not a fan of the wood trim. I was thinking about getting wrapped in black to match the dash for a uniform look, but CF is not bad either (from what I can see so far).

Thanks! I bought a 6" x 6ft roll for $12 so I only had the chance to do the dash for now. I will finish the other trim up when I get the chance.
