If not then you'll just have to wrap everything.

HELL NO! that would take sooooo much time. If anything ill do the h/vac cover, the vents and the plastic piece over the gauges. (not in between the gauges) Going to have a gauge cluster.

That's what I do. Skinning is just like saying covering a piece with a thin layer of carbon fiber.

You want something to look carbon fiber I can skin it. Not all things though i can't remember right now how much heat I can get the coat to handle.

I just painted all of my interior . Didn't come out bad at all . Was going for flat black but the clear coat still glossed it up.

Re: Should i get a carbon fiber wrapped center console

BTW, console pics looks sweet. Ive only seen stock images. It will look sick with black but Id personally want some more cf somewhere to go with it: steering wheel, dash, doors, whatever. Dont go crazy with the cf as less is often better, but it would look out of place I think with no other cf. And make sure whatever else you get has matching patterns/fiber direction and color shades.
