    After doing my angel eyes, i left a few finger prints in the lense which were annoying me



    So i took them apart and wrapped the black plastic trim inside with 3m di-Noc

    looks brilliant but does the heat from the headlights effect the wrapping material in any way.

    Looks really good!, specially with your car colour.

    Hope you have not been affected by the "bit of 3M carbon Foil" left over syndrome.

    Reativly easy,

    Have you wrapped anything before?

    I wrapped my steering wheel trim with it, and that shape was pretty easy to do, the head lights were a bit harder to do lol, you have to make a few joins and get the cf pattern to match up,

    prolly took about 1 hour to wrap them both and about 2 hours to get the head lights out apart and back again lol

    TBH I'm not a fan of fake carbon fibre as I've said before but I've gotta eat my words coz that look REALLY good.
    Nice work!
