    Ive just received my new wooden inlays just waiting for the carbon wrap to arrive and will be doing this myself after seeing others. Plus the Piano black in mine is getting scratched so when sale time comes will put that back in and sell the wrapped wood ones.

    Here is mine mate. Its quite popular amongst various forums. You can wrap anything really.

    Finished the aircon unit and coin tray surround. Took me ages and a trip to B&Q for some allen keys to unscrew the unit.

    Heres it at the moment. Next will be the symphony II. I just need to get some keys so i can pull it out to wrap it.






    (Forgot to put the piece behind the ashtray back lol)




    Symphony done

    I've got a TT-S shifter and S3 vents, I don't like the TT vents, and the S3 vents match the RNS knobs, all in the detail

    N8 do you have to take the door cards off to get the inlays off or can you pop them off with a trim padder?

    Can you get them done in actual CF? I'm not keen on the wrap. Can you get wrap that looks like polished carbon?

    nelson what do you mean? the pictures above in N8's car are wrapped? it would cost like thousands to get parts custom made in carbon fibre? i just need to know what i need and how to do it ?
    i have heat gun and obviously you will need the wrap to do it ....

    I've see that wrap before and I don't like it that much and was just wondering if there was a glossy version that looked more like resined CF.

    I'm not trying to be a critic. Just wondered if there was a glossy one mate.

    CF doesn't cost too much for the smaller bits. I completely CF'd my old Ducati 749.

    You can buy kits online to wrap stuff in actual CF. http://www.carbonmods.co.uk/Products...CMCFSK300.aspx

    N8.... Not trying to offend.... Just my personal preference.

    The C frames alone are about 350

    OSIR Design USA-OSIR - C Frames - Gloss Carbon - A3 8P

    Probably over 1500 to do the whole interior. Small parts are very expensive for real carbon i.e. not fibreglass with carbon wrapped on it, as you have to make moulds for the parts. Once thats done its pretty easy to make more and the costs come down.

    Jules.... With Osir you are paying for the name to be honest. I CF'd my whole Ducati for less than 1500.

    That's not my point. I was only initially asking if you can get Gloss CF wrap.

    You can get white CF wrap so i expect so.

    If you apply lacquer over it, it looks glossy as well

    Im in the middle if this mod. Bought wood trim off eBay and going to keep the piano Black. Once you get the hang of it it's not too bad. Shouldn't have said that till ive finished. Hardest part is ashtray took most of it apart.

    Using a hairdryer seems to be doing the trick for me so far.

    Fingers crossed but have bought enough wrap incase I mess
    Up. Hardest part for me will be taking the trim out of my car not good at all this DIY stuff lol
