Carbon Fiber Dashkit Overlay?

I was looking at adding this to my Christmas list but noticed that it said it was not compatible with the aftermarket Raxiom Nav unit. I was just curious if anyone has tried any of these overlays with the Raxiom and found a way for it to fit and look good. Just curious. Thanks guys!

I have the overlay kit and the raxiom nav but I just did the rest of the dash and left the nav alone. Later down the road if I want I'll get it wrapped by someone but until then it really doesn't bug me.

Did either of the center console pieces look like they could be modified at all or not really? Do you have any pictures that I could check out to see what yours looks like without the center done?

You can always get a sheet of carbon fiber vinyl and make your own.

Thanks Alex! You could make a version to fit with the Raxiom unit!
I'll give you a few weeks to draw it up and complete it. Lol

I did think of that but I would want to make sure 100% that it was the same shade of red. If it's a little off then it would drive me insane.

Yup, that's what I did. ebay sells the stuff for about $15 - $20 a roll.

Yeah, I did red carbon and it looked to pink/orange. Bought the blood red carbon fiber and like it much better! Originally did entire console but it was too much for me so I pulled it off and left only the dash and steering wheel. Had plenty and spent under $50.

Where could I find tips on installing that? It's so tempting for so cheap

Looks good! I'm worried about trying on the Raxiom unit because it does concave in the center(if you look at my pic) and it's not flat like the stock unit is. Think it might be difficult to install. Any pics of your interior without the center console wrapped? I might just go that route.

Use a heat gun to get around the curves and work it in there.

Yeah, like mean14 said, heat gun or hair dryer to warm it. You're talking about the recess under the large display? Shouldn't be a problem. I'll take a couple pics tomorrow.

I found a picture of someone that did this with the Raxiom unit in the AM website.

Yeah, looks great! Like I said, for me, center was too much but you might like it. I have the satin dash so if the edges weren't wrapped, it shines like crazy so diy worked for me. I will say that the airbag cover needs to be done in two sections (top/bottom). I originally used 1 piece but once I cut down the center for the seem, I ended up with some of the satin underneath showing. The other thing to note is the covers move a little but don't come off so any wrapping of that center seem needs to be done CAREFULLY without much intrusion into the airbag beneath. I really don't know what happens if the airbag gets cut but I don't want to find out. So here are a few pics...

That does look great! Thanks for the heads up on the airbag. None of us want to find that out the hard way, that's for sure!

You can afford a little trial and error at these prices, that's what I did. I tackled some of the smaller pieces first but it turned out that the big, big flat center stack panel was the easiest. Just a little time consuming to make all the cut outs. I removed each part so I could apply the film at the bench as opposed to contorting myself in the car.
