    vinyl wrapping interior trim?

    As per title, I've bought a full set of ally trim of ebay only to find that it's got a few scratches etc. Was thinking about wrapping it instead, does anyone know/had experience with a particular firm that they could recommend as I don't want to pay for it to be done only to have it look crap!

    cheers Darren

    Really easy mate, all you need is a sharp blade and a hair dryer, i wrapped my fishscale trim in 3d carbon the other night, only took 2 hours to do the whole lot and it looks miles better. Save yourself some cash and give it a go, its really forgiving stuff if you make a mistake just heat it up and its ready to use again

    I got 1.5m x 60cm and that was plenty. To do all the trims with some spare inches of any mistakes

    Cost me £12 delivered

    Maybe silly question' when you wrap them did you bend the arp around the back of the trim 'the edges and refit or did you trim the wrap to the exact shape of the trim and refit

    hi pal,i heated and stretched mine round as it was warm and that made the glue sticky too so it adehered better too then once i had it where i wanted it and looked good i trimmed the excess off the rear.
    if you look back through the posts theres loads of info on this as quite a few peeps have done this mod and i say dont worry about doing it,its quite easy coz you can keep unsticking the vinyl untill you have it how you want it!
    i shown my stepdad mine the other day and he said it looked factory and sporty so that made my day!!!!

    I would think so, maybe use some filler first?

    hi mate I had a dent or two in my Ali trim on passenger side too and I didn't bother filling them and they are hardly noticeable now, I can only see them as I knew they was there but even the wife can't see them unless I point them out.
    mine where tiny ones though, I think any bigger than you'd need to fill them if you want a straight look!

    Dents are quite small. Can only see them when the light catches them. One of the downsides of ally over plastic. Think wrap is the way to go but has anyone done anything other than cf. And does the texture on the ally show through the vinyl?

    Here is a quick pic of the new 4D stuff. The pic is a little over exposed with the flash but you get the idea.

    This new stuff gives a lot more depth and makes the carbon more realistic

    I did mine satin black over the ally, you can still make out the pattern a bit, but as long as you dont try using a squeegee it looks good, I'd post a pic but I'm crap at it and it takes me forever to figure it out lol

    I had some scratches and small dents in mine, they didn't show up at all after wrapped, but i used a quality 3m vinyl
    Here's a few pics of areas that were scratched and dented




    If you rub the vinyl quite hard when smoothing it you might see the dents
