    carbon fiber wrap

    I have never used this stuff before, but I had some white marks on my door pillars and could not get rid of them so I thought I would try and wrap them see how they looked.

    It was first time and i thought i would ruin it, I am not very patient and I have clumsy fat fingers , but even i was impressed with my first go. the wrap was very forgiving and it turned it ok.





    well definitely better then it did look.

    Then I got the bug and thought I wonder what else I can wrap...

    So I made a quick license plate delete out of perspex and wrapped it.



    then had a look inside the car.





    I have stopped now, but all in all a good weekend.

    I am surprised that it actually looks, well good, I was expecting it to look crap, especially as i was doing it. I have to admit that all the pictures were taken from flattering angles

    going to have a celebratory beer now

    thanks

    the cost was minimal so I am not too fussed about re making it. I bought a sheet of perspex 12inches by 12inches and the blank is 12 inch by 2inches(ish) so I have plent left and loads of wrap left too. Perspex cost $4 and the warp was $15 for a huge roll.

    I think I saw precut ones for $20 on Ebay, which is crazy because I bought a huge roll for $15, the door pillars didn;t even make a dent in the roll i bought. I still have loads left, might start wrapping things in the house now

    yeah.. I'm thinking pillars, and mirror triangles. I had the triangles painted on my old bugeye, and it looked good, but started peeling after six months.

    I looked at the triangles, looks slightly complicated, but once I figure out to take them off the car i think I will give it a go.
