this is my attempt at a how to wrap/skin or whatever you like to call it. this is a pretty easy but time consuming process. this is my process (beginner) so if you have more experience and know of better a better way by all mean contribute.
since this is demo on a somewhat easy piece the process is still the same of any piece. and some of the steps might be to trivial for the pros on here but i dont want to assume everyone is handy.
Here is a list of all the product i used..
(Disclaimer: I am writing to show you how i did it. I am in no way responsible for your action or what you do or happen to your car. )
-3M DI-NOC Carbon fiber (there are other carbon fiber but they are printed). The carbon fiber I use is the glossy one. There is a matte one also.
-3M 94 Primer glue
-Paint brush any size depends on project and surface
-Hair Dryer - low setting is plenty heat. Find a place to rest the hair dryer so you can both hands
-Exacto knives, you can use scissor to cut but i found the exacto knives to be easier to trim the excess and cut in the small area
I used a removal tool as to not to damage the sounding area. you can use a screw driver with electrical tape but i would be careful still.
The piece I did is the trim piece on the door handle.
Here is what the piece looks like after it was removed.
what the back of the piece looks like
A sample of what the glue looks like when apply
here is what it looks like after it dries. go over the dry area again with at least 2-3 coats of glue. my brother did 1 coat and it started to peel when it gotten hot. my 3 coat withstand the heat today. do worry about the glue touching you. its just tacky your fingers will not stick to the parts. make sure to put glue on every surface even the back not the whole back area but the side wall, the inside side wall. basically you will need to pull the wrap back and tuck it back and make it stay. as you can tell this is important
after coating the piece the glue is probably dry by now but dont worry. now its time to peel the back of the 3M..here is what it looks like
forming time...as you can see from the picture the 3M is falling and very flexible when it is heated up that way you can pull and stretch just becareful not to man handle the pull
here is an example of "mess" up crease..no worry heat it up and pull open
