Wrapped Trim in CF (Pics)

Been bored and figured Id take on a small project.

More pics to come later but here is the end result of my Wood interior transformed into CF.

Inexpensive and not too time consuming- behind trim was repulsive, full of liquid stains and crumbs (second owner of car).

Doesn't look like CF, looks like fake vinyl.

I've never done vinyl before but it looks like you stretched and pulled on some of the flat surfaces a bit too much so the 'weave lines' of the vinyl doesn't look straight anymore.

The main center console looks good. The ashtray cover is the biggest offender and theres a couple of places on the dash trim that warped a bit.

thanks

Yes. Don't be afraid of playing around with vinyl.

Noticed that the vinyl was stretched way to much in some places.

Not sure what you are referring to with the ash tray however, I am looking to fill that space in with the sunglass rubber pieces no more ash lid. Been searching the forum all day cant find a correct part number.

I'm wrapping mine in either brushed aluminum or gloss black. Looks good!

Good job for a first time wrap.

However you might want to have the pattern on the trims go in the same direction.


Take it all off and re-wrap, you will be alot more satisfied.

Any thoughts on covering my shifter area with CF? Black is peeling and dont feel the need to spend $120 on a new one.. Any suggestions.

Same thought - how about wrapping the black in a matt black vinyl... I can have it shipped to me for delivery tomorrow. Any thoughts?

I did my wrap last month and it came out really nice. One of the edges on the passenger door and the rear door kinda bubbled, you can't see it unless you open the door and look on the side but it still bothers me lol.

My Two Cents or $$$
I have pointed out the issues with your CF wrap, i would call it Carbon Fiber RAPE, Yes you rapped it

Th red arrows indicates that Carbon fiber on dash going to left and CF on center console trim is going to right, thats wrong, both should be going one direction either to right or left and other people have already indicated those wavy lines because you have stratched CF too much and those spots have been marked in green circle. you should re do the whole thing.
