    I think the carbon would look great if it had more of a shiney finish like the wood does. Its a bit "flat", in my opinion.

    Is the trim actually wood or just plastic with venier on it ? Could it be rubbed down and re-laquered ?

    Alternatively my mate can carbon wrap it all for nothing But im not sure how good this would look with the beige interior. The centre console is black, black matts.

    Thoughts ?
    i was thinking the same thing as i have beige interior with silver trim in my vert thats looking a bit tired and thought of carbon wrapping it, now i can see how it looks i will be wrapping mine, i got some carbon vinyl (shiny) off fleabay 1000x650mm for about £12 so i will be having a go at la weekend
    It's a ragtop thing, you wouldn't understand
