Want to wrap trim but need idea/opinions
 
7 Attachment(s)
So after seeing chade46s car i have been toying with the idea of wrapping my trim in fabric. i want something unique and am not interested in CF or brushed aluminum vinyl.

So i went to joannes and walked around for a bit and had them cut me small pieces of different materials. and now i would like you guys to vote on them. I have a TiAg sedan with a black leatherette interior and black trim.



also if you have some idea about what to wrap it in please feel free to let me know. especially if you can photoshop it in.

Thanks

trim 1 (flannel)

honestly i wouldnt do any of those. i did go the cf fabric route and gotta say it looks amazing. the ones u posted just wouldnt look that good imho. but if i were to choose one, id go with the second one.

thats fair enough. i have seen lots of the CF ones, and i was never a big fan of cf to begin with. i also wanted it to be somewhat unique. the issue is i have no other colors in my car for cues...

May I suggest a 4th option? Leather. Find a decent leather shop and have it leather-wrapped.

i actually grabbed a sample of faux crocodile hide, didnt try to put it on but grabbed it cause it was free.

what color?

first off, try selling your trim first. A few people out there want the piano black trim, then buy yourself some wood trim. This will help someone, and you won't ruin nice trim with fabric. Second, I would go with the second trim. It matches the theme of the interior, while not standing out so much. It also looks like it would blend really well with the trim all around the car

I dont really want to mess around with swapping unless its local. I was thinking the second trim as well.

BTW if anyone is reading this and wants my trim in exchange for their trim before i do this please pm me.

1st would look good

Studdly_Studright 03-01-2010 01:30 AM

second would be very interesting but the first is my favorite. none of them really pop out at me though

damn i was kinda hoping one would get largely outvoted by the others. i really like the feel of the flannel (trim 1) but the second one is really unique and kinda subdued....


damn i just cant make up my mind.

none of the above...

i think im gonna do mine in black suede...might wanna give that a look...
