    Just wondering whether anyone tried this themselves or know anyone around the Midlands who does this kind of thing?

    My trim is pretty beat up and needs abit of TLC but thinking instead of buying a complete new trim set off ebay, respray the one I have.

    this does look good and I was thinking of doing it as my black carbon cube was heavily scratched on drivers door and had scratches elsewhere in the car. There is a guy on ebay that offers carbon wrapping services if you don't fancy it yourself

    in the end I ended up respraying them myself with a simple black spray can and they look fantastic . Considering it would have cost between £100-150 for a 2nd hand set then the respray is by far the cheapest option for me but don't know what kind of trim you have, what colour it is and what condition also
