ya its carbon but its junk corner is chipped off and has a crack in the back side of it, it also doesnt fit very well, was supposed to be for my blue car but quality wasnt good enough needless to say it was about $200

Yup, it is pretty cool what 3M has done with this. Key thing I want to point out is make sure you have a heat gun, don't use water, get a good vinyl squeegee (can run ya around 1-3 bucks) and MOST importantly have some patience!!!

This stuff can be crumbled into a ball and with some heat will retain its flat original state....without the wrinkles.
I posted this video awhile back on my decals thread......its good stuff you got in your hands!!!



Like everyone has posted.......CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THIS IN PERSON........Pictures are not doing it justice!!!

ya Im going to repaint both of my shock towers, this thing was ready to sit on the ground but not quite yet now Then im going to take some of that carbon wrap and put it around my shock towers and see if I can make some trim and to break it up a little bit, so its not so plain and if I get sick of it i can take it off and should look good as new still

shock towers fixed










shock towers are so much cleaner than the rest of the bay, I either need to clean the rest of the bay or dusty up the shock towers (sounds much easier!)

Learned a new skill tonight! Girls love guys with skills Was originally going to do this for the blue sol but figured since it was my first time better try it on the black one, so I decided to give vinyl wrapping a shot and heres how it turned out think I will do the blue one also! This is just a couple pieces took about 1 hour

1st piece


2nd piece


3rd piece

End result




Turned out pretty well, but this does take a lot of skill to do right, and I did my homework and messed up a couple times, theres little tips and tricks to doing some of the stuff that they just dont explain on youtube videos!

Looks good!!!

So does that del sol. Im usually not a fan of "front end conversions" but that looks pretty good, especially with that intercooler

Thanks, I cant wait to get it out and drive it finally and I have to get a hood thats the last piece, but with all the salt still on the roads its not worth doing yet, gotta make sure I wait, will probably get back to wrenches for a clean up on my tune since a couple things were changed but made 312whp in the teg!
