  • Carbon wrap dash

    Has anybody done this before, I think it looks great but I'd have to do all the stereo as well and gearstick surround,

    How hard is it to remove all this as I'm guessing it would be easier to do it all if not attach to car.

    Any help on this would be great

    Thanks dave

        I have never used the wrap before either but I'm quite happy to give it ago.

        Is it like window tint film to apply or easier/harder????

          it all comes off pretty easy, the tricky bit would be the stereo really

            never used window tint before mate...but i found the carbon wrap quite easy to use...i used a hair dryer to heat it up to make it more user friendly

                thanks mate.

                my mate did the dash, however i did some engine bits after to try it out. Id say its pretty easy to be honest and im sure i could do the dash if I wanted.

                the tricky part is the coin holder, next to the power socket for satnav connections etc, thats really small, so you will need to be very tidy there. cutting the wrap etc.

                dont think you need a lot of wrap buddy, but get a decent amount if you go wrong.

                    he was going to do the engine bay for me, but he gave me some wrap and said try to do it, its easy...so I gave it a go

                          Does anybody know how much wrap I will need to do this?

                          Is the eBay stuff any good or would I be better buying for somewhere else, if so where?

                          Thanks again

                            Ive used the 3M stuff from ebay to do a few interior bit and my wheel centre caps. Its alright stuff.

                            Id just take rough measurements of the stuff you want to wrap. Maybe then just order abit more than you think you'll need.
