Default My work with Carbon fiber wrap

Here is some stuff i wrapped in 3m Di-noc stuff. I love it. its so easy to work with. you can crumble it in a ball, heat it up and its straight again. when its warm it feels like cloth.

I think the door handles are a little overboard, but to each his own.

I was going to pop mine out and get them anodized black on my old black '95, saw it done once and looked pretty damn good, might be something to think about if you're not 100% satisfied with the carbon. Had the same intentions for the "frankenstein plate" or whatever you wanna call it that you did in carbon fiber and the hardtop strikers as well.

yeah, that would be great to anodize them. I might get just a black vinyl to do them.

they do. You can get 48" width by whatever length.

Oh my. This could be potentially dangerous to my wallet in the future. Not too unreasonable on the price either.

Only if you put it in the wrong places. Personally the only place where its ok to use this is on the trunkedge because you wouldnt ever have it like that unless its for asthetic purposes. You def. shouldnt wrap a hardtop in it.....

Exactly, I see people beat off on cf hoods even tho 90% of them are overlaid fiberglass. So why waste money when you can use high quality plastic wrap to do the same job.
