    i done loads in my car, E46... ill post up pictures in abit if i can find out where they are so you have a rought idea of what they look like. i found a hair dryer worked great, didnt get it too hot, but hot enough to mould it around hard bends and that, i must say, the corners and that are abit of a pain in the bum but its worth doing! i think mine looks great, without sounding big headed about my work haha

    since this i have also done my mirrors but was a toguth job, didnt work out as great as planned so am going to give them another go soon. also planning on doing my roof and then moving on to doing my bonnet and boot .... am thinking this because i saw a Golf MK5 with it done and it looks amazing! haha.....This carbon wrapping is definitely addictive

    wow thats looks great marky! did you take the steering wheel off to do that or did you do it in situ? I have the classic peeling on my E60 M sport wheel and quite fancy that look but worried about taking the wheel off.

    i took my steering wheel off mate, but was a simple job, probably simple enough on your steering wheel to. I suppose you could do it while its in place but might be abit tricky


    Ohhh i didnt thake the complete steering wheel off, just that cover part that i wrapped

    I've done mirrors in the past and the center of my steering wheel. Curves can take some time to get right. I found a hairdryer to be better than a heatgun tbh, get it quite warm and don't be afraid to stretch the stuff.
