It's begun....some of you cover your eyes, lol!
Still have quite a bit to wrap still, but it's looking good so far. The first piece I did was the spoiler, which I ended up ******* up (Knew I would ) so I will be redoing it....

I bought it when they had their discount goin on for $6/sq ft. It's fairly user friendly, but not fool proof. If your not careful its quite possible to **** it up, ask me how I know When applying the heat gun is your friend!

How do the phony carbon fiber trunk and parts look next to the real carbon fiber top? Does the real fiber top make the fake stuff look REALLY fake or it look OK together?

If the top was dry carbon it'd probably be hard to tell....but you can definitly see the difference. For my purposes where I wanted to go the two tone route without painting and not caring about having the car be a beauty queen, its perfect. From a few feet back I think it looks mint. So the short answer in my eyes would be it looks OK together....not great, but not horrible either.

Some more CF wrap progress (Slowly but surely). After I paint the finishing panel and bumper white and the drip channels under the trunk lid black, the back end will be all set. Then its on to the windshield surround and hood.
