Carbon wrap wing mirror's
« on: June 14, 2012, 06:40:31 pm »
I was bored so decided to give my wing mirror's a quick carbon fibre wrap:-



Not too sure if I like it yet...?

Looks good to me , how much did that cost & is it quite easy to do ?

Thanks, now back on the car I agree they do look good! This is the textured wrap so is a little more pricey but you can get a 2m cut off from eBay for around £20-40. Also, make sure its bubble free as this makes it much easier.

As for how easy to do, it depends on how patient you are. I have been using wrap for a while so very quick and easy, only took 10min to do both. But as a beginner just be prepared to do it a few times and have a look on you tube etc for guides.

Just had my roof and door pillars wrapped in the same carbon, think the matt finish of the wraps does set the gloss of the car off. Will post some piccies when it stops raining so that i can clean the car.
