    Alright peeps

    I'm wanting to carbon wrap my hideous silver fish scale interior trim. Where's the best place to get this stuff from? 3M? eBay? And how much will I need?

    Thanks in advance for any help, Craig.

    I think you can get some decent stuff from eBay but don't have the link anymore. Make sure you get some pics up once you've done it, would be interested to see the outcome. :sign_pics:

    Bit of a thread-jack... but I saw a B6 cab at AITP 2012 which had some white/black marble effect trim... anyone know what material it was or who's car it was??

    Ive done my interior trim and a few other bits with stuff from ebay, 3m di-noc carbon is what you want.

    I got it from eBay from a company called Carbonprintuk and I bought 3000mm x 1500mm which was way way too much (managed to do the interior trim, b pillar trim, rear bumper insert and the bonnet on my mates T4 transporter van and I still have some left over).

    That looks awesome Greeny! Did you do it yourself and how difficult was it on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the most difficult). Did you use a heat gun to shrink the wrap on etc. Thinking of doing mine after seeing that but not sure if it'd look good as I've got black leathers and not too keen on the matt/satin finish you get with the wrap. My interior trim is currently silver.

    I was thinking the same, I'm not 100% sure about the matte/satin finish either.. Could you not get the trim lackered once it's wrapped in carbon?

    Looks impressive Danny, be interested to see how engine covers turn out. Have they given you turnaround timescale.

    Just enquired about getting a gun part coated and despite showing a photo of a rifle on their site they do not do them.

    Check out the price section on their site, they have a full price list break down for gun parts, so it seems strange they said no to you.

    It does seem an expensive way to do it. Couldn't you wrap trim parts and lacquer them yourself???

    They replied saying they could not do it as they do not have a license, one of my questions was the legality of sending them a part.
    Its a weird shape and subject to a fair bit of abuse. I have been looking online for a kit to do it myself. There are a couple on eBay.

    If you want to remove the grille to do it then yes you will have to take the bumper off, although there are a few memebers on here who have wrapped the grille surround while it's in place.

    Ok thanks mate, if iv got plenty left once iv finished the interior I might give it a go without taking it off the car but don't think it would be as good s job as taking it off.
