I'm a pretty patient person to begin with, but I wouldn't say I have a steady hand. Just have to take it slow.That's pretty sweet - how did you pull that off so cleanly, short of intense patience and a steady hand?
Some pieces took a little bit of encouragement, but overall the trim is a lot easier to remove than some other cars I've had experience with.Sweet. Were those panels easy to remove? Did you have a manual or how-to, or did you just wing it?
Here's the stuff I used.I like that! Any info on where you got that material? and how you did it?
I will go take a pic of the finished product, I wanted to hold off until I got the weave to line up lol. But it still looks real good. Better than I hoped.Any pics of the parts installed? This is about the first interior mod I've ever been tempted to try...but I want to make sure it doesn't disrupt the look of the interior. And you mention redoing one piece - what's the damage done if you had to back out and leave a piece uncovered? Adhesive residue, etc? And finally, what's the finish like on that wrap - can you feel the basketweave texture, or does it have a smooth finish?
Hah yeah, I mulled it over for a little while and decided I wanted it to give the impression that the CF was on there from the factory. So I put the sync badge back on. I may yet remove it..Even with the opposite grain, it still looks nice...better than without, but would look better with the same grain. However, can't believe you took the time to remove the Microsoft badge, then put it back on. I will definitely be removing that badge when I de-badge the car.
DI-NOC was my guess. That stuff is awesome. Definitely need to play around with it. Yours looks great!I'm a pretty patient person to begin with, but I wouldn't say I have a steady hand. Just have to take it slow.
These are the finished product, on the climate control I did remove the electronics which makes it quite a bit easier. You don't have to cut any perfect lines or anything.
I used 3M DI-NOC carbon fiber wrap, the stuff is amazing. You just heat it up with a hair dryer and it turns pliable so you can mold it around edges.. When it cools down it hardens almost like real carbon fiber.
