    Wow, that looks really nice!
    It looks textured, is the pattern raised to the touch?

    I'm inspired, did you cut it prior to attaching or while on the part? I may order the silver color to match the car, looks good.

    I layed it down first using a heat gun and then cut it. After I cut it I heated it up again and ran a credit card thru the crack to get the vinyl to curve into the crack.

    before you take it off if you don't like it can you ppppllleeeaaassseeee do me a favor? get a can of clear coat and spay it. I hear it makes it look like the wet CF. Like a new CF hood.

    That's a good idea.

    I just did most of my interior and personally I love it...only problem I found is that in the heat when the car is outside in the sun any parts I had to stretch the vinyl a bit to get in to the grooves.. like on the air vents... It started to bubble...I just gotta make sure not to pull it so tight...Click image for larger version.

    Though I'm not really into the "carbon fiber craze", I'm impressed with the workmanship. Nice job!

    I'm more of a brushed aluminum and alcantara guy, but that looks great!

    I'm looking into doing an alcantara dashboard. I can sew and have a machine, so I think I could pull it off.
