    I work for a vehicle livery company....so managed to blag a few sheets for myself as it really is great stuff. Next up i think will be the dash inserts and door handles as mine are a little scratched.

    Let me know what you all think as i'm really interested in doing more of this kind of thing








    Very good job

    I look forward to seeing more updates in the future

    i know what you mean, i'd think the same! This stuff is not your cheap printed gash. But a brand new product thats not long arrived from the states (where it is used on everything!!) its actually a textured carbon weave film and is as close to the real thing (hence the nice finsh in the pics) but without the high cost.

    Like everthing, when its a new product, and not many distributors (i only know of one) then the price will remain high. 3M sell it at a price i wont even mention, but the stuff i've used in the pics above is exactly the same but more reasonable at around £30 a metre.....obviously dropping in price with the more you buy.

    My line of work is vehicle livery (advertising) 'sky' vans etc. So i'm regular talking with trade reps, being forced to attend sign shows Heard about this product and blagged a few metres to try out, and was very impressed, as i've always been cautious of such products looking 'tacky'!

    In my own time i've done various bits on friends cars, some evolution rear spoilers, and a few bits on a fiat 500.....and there all happy bunnys!!

    I'm looking on ebay for a set of e46 dash trims to cover (pref smooth ones eg wood effect) then i'll post the results up.

    Anyway sorry for waffling on...thanks for the positive comments and i'm glad you like the pics

    Zigourney, joking aside, if you are able to remove your trim (easy, but you need to disconnect the battery for the airbag, and leave it disconected until its back together) post it to me and i will cover it for you, just cover the postage costs.
    As i'm keen to get peeps feedback on this stuff and would love to do more of it

    Bit of a thread revival here, the wrap looks awesomeand just what I need for the steering wheel and also my interior door handles as they are scratched really badly.

    Is it more difficult to do on carbon cube due to it being textured and where can I get some from to have a go?

    Cheers,

    i got mine on ebay, its called 3m di noc

    its not very hard to do, but if you are doing a couple of separate bits make sure you have the weave going the same direction other wise it will stand out,

    Heres what i done ... http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...al-and-t66089/
