Where you get the Vinyl from?...
ouch thats expensive but would look awesome as you said lol one day maybe lol
hey kev i got it off ebay GENUINE 3M DI-NOC CARBON FIBRE WRAP VINYL (30 x 120cm) on eBay (end time 19-Sep-10 13:53:43 BST) i think its very nice looking stuff and looks like real naked carbon its even textured to make it reflect light you can get bigger rolls of it to
lol im not the most patient person in the world dont worry haha its easy to use tho got to be fair mate give it a try
Hey fran, you make make a living doing cars. It does look good!
haha i should do
If anyone is interested I have a cut out for a passenger side front door trim in 3m carbon where i ran out of product to do the drivers one, so made a second passenger side one!! So if you want it, you more than welcome!
I have done the trim panel in between the doors and the rear window and it looks the ********!!
Just need to do the drivers side trim and the rear ones, and the centre ashtray which looks complicated!!
How much did u use dude?..
i should have bought the bigger roll but i got the one in the link but i used nearly all the roll but im buying another roll as i have to do the rear pass side trim again as i used offcuts hence the reason why i should have got the bigger roll there wasnt enough to do the whole car with the smaller roll so i would recomend getting a bigger roll as of your doing all the trims and ashtray and gear surround you will prob run out
Okies dude thanks wish i would get it done before E38 but not a chance at the moment lol...

gorgeous, but v pricey!!
wow that is hot stuff but way way way out of my price range i would love to have it tho lol
in addition to my carbon wrapped interior trims ive just sprayed the handles black to go with the theme of the car what do you all think keep it like that or put it back to standard chrome a few picys
take the carbon off and spray the trims as well, being brutally honest it looks **** to me atm however it is your car and not everyone has the same opinion
Bet you will be opening your doors with care
lol yeah i am haha
Love the carbon effect but think the handles should stay chrome mate. I ordered some 3M Carbon yesterday as I want to do my 'b' pillars and wing mirrors. I went for the 40cm x 120cm for £23.95.
Do you think I will need to apply heat to the film when it is on the 'b' pillars bareing in mind they are a flat surface and there's not really anything for the film to form around???
Yes; the heat softens the vinyl (which allows it to form around whatever it is being wrapped around), and also helps the vinyl to adhere to the surface it's on.
as he said use a hairdryer or a heatgun on a low setting otherwise u will melt it
Actually, do you have better pictures? I've been imagining of what you just did to your car almost everytime when I looked at my interior. My bet is that when properly prep, it would look really good!
i have indeed
Oh, and if you look on german ebay, (www.ebay.de), there are genuine CF mirrors for a decent price amongst other things that are much cheaper than over here!
what about these i know they are only covers but they should still look the part Audi A3 8P Carbon Mirror Cover S3 ABT Sline on eBay (end time 01-Oct-10 11:13:07 BST)
You're a braver man than me if you want to fit carbon fibre mirror covers, knowing how many S3 mirrors get torn off cars.
s3 mirrors are highly sort after parts i dont think that many people would be after carbon fibre covers but you never know lol
I think their value would be recognised pretty quickly, the gypsies would descend on your car before you could say "Do you like dags?".
lol yeah thats true mate and there is alot of pikey twats in cardiff so have to be carefull other wise i will be surrounded by dags lol
a new addition to the car, done a bit more carbon wrapping today http://i936.photobucket.com/albums/ad201/fnmrst/my car pics/28102010712.jpg
