Interior Trim Wrap - Brushed Graphite (Teaser for now)

Finally bought a roll of Brushed Graphite 3m vinyl from a forum member.
Been looking for this color, but they don't sell it anywhere!

Anyway, I started off with the rear pieces. These were really easy to pull off. Just get your fingers behind the trim then slowly pry it off little by little.

The vinyl I used is a 3M Di-Noc which is thicker and harder to apply around corners compared to 3M Scotchprint.

First trim took me and my friend exactly an hour, way more than I expected. Getting the corners and the sides wrinkle free was not an easy task. After getting it to look flawless around the edges, I went back to my car to see how it looks installed. It looked pretty nice on my black leather interior, but I realized something that I probably should've noticed earlier. The corners are barely visible and the edges are completely hidden when it is installed, so there was no need to get it perfectly wrinkle free in those areas With this in mind, we were way less pressured on our second trim and finished it within 15 minutes.

I only have the two rear trims wrapped for now, but will finish the entire interior by the weekend and post some shots.

Still in my car.
I get off work late tonight, but will get as much done as possible.
Will be done by the Sunday night.
I'll take some photos with my DSLR, since there aren't that many photos of this color on the forum.

Haha sorry, just haven't had the time to finish it.
Just tried to wrap one by myself, which was a lot harder and didn't come out as nice!
Here is another teaser...just for you.

Brushed Graphite, Steel, Titanium, Aluminum, and Black could all look similar under different lighting conditions.

Here is a picture I took to compare all 5.
Big sheet underneath is the Brushed Graphite I used.

Brushed Graphite looks close to black in this pic, but looks a lot more gray in sunlight.
