Talking Carbon fiber attempt

this is my first run and a test at wrapping 3M DI-NOC carbon fiber before i order more and do my interior. it came out pretty good imo. I wanted to go red carbon fiber but my wife wasnt up to it. =/ The wordings are cover but they have been memorized already. and i dont use them since i install the aftermarket HU (didnt get the steering wheel control adapter) and i used cruise control like once since i owned it. (not a cruise control person). since i had to use 3M 94 Primer (recommended glue)..this is a COMMITTED process, no go back to stock unless you buy new ones or remove it and cover it with something else. the primer is strong enough to remove the paint off those 2 pieces but the again so did the baby wipes.

after

my brother ordered it from here https://www.metrorestyling.com/

use code "summer10" without quotes for 10% off..the piece was a 12x24 and only cost $12
after 10% off and shipping

the 3M DI-NOC is not a carbon fiber print, it actually has the carbon texture to it so when lights hit it, it like real carbon fiber.

thanks..koosh
