No, the red carbon seems kind of off

I like the gloss and brightness I the vinyl
I think it matches my car more than what I have now :p

the red does look better.....
Going to do the dinco black carbon on mine minus the gloss treatment (yes im getting the dash kit). somewhere down the road..when im feeling risky, ill pull the dash/console and do it right...but got WAY more projects on the car to be focusing on....the CF kit will be fine

Used a hair dryer or heat gun right..? Believe the idea was to push the wrinkles out the ends while still warm..but I could be wrong. Btw...put a strip of red on that center part of the sifter..might look cool!

BTW...did you remove those panels..and how hard was it? you've inspired me to save $120 bucks and just get the vinyl and the dash tool kit (both on ebay) and just go for it......
Ordered more of the black CF film ive been using for some other projects....this should be fun.....

I'm assuming this question isn't meant for me :p
With the dash kit you just stick everything on, I haven't removed the panels

If ur afraid to install it you can take it to your local sign shop, they will proly do it for a small fee and you wont have any air pockets or anything.

not afraid.....just working my way up. got a sample sheet and have been playing with Black CF vinyl.....already wrapped, albeit time consuming, the MMD tail light cover/surrounds from AM.....not too shabby.....
after the trufiber tail panel was way cut off angle, and still awaiting their response, and had to modify heavily for gas cap to fit in center....im gonna wrap the existing tail panel to match the 2 bookends at the tail lights
