    Thought i would show you the Custom center console i nocked up a while ago covered in 3m di-noc. Do more nasty screw in fillers for the after market head unit. I love this now, gonna some how do my mirrors too but cant seem to seperate them :(

    i did buy a carbon fibre engine cover but sent it back as i thought it looked shat... hes what i have done so far.

    Mark: yes there is texture to it, it flecks like real CF too. Also sorry to hear about the dog.

    Plunky: its 3M di-noc Wrap, you can get it off ebay. I payed £100 for 2m squared which im sharing with my mate to do his roof. I got the Wrap off a mate whos in the industry.

    i just took my wing mirrors off too.... :eyebrows:
