Too bad you're in Bahrain or we could talk swap.... LOL.

Finally bit the bullet (site admin helped abit; nicked me for commercial posting), so I fugured time to bite the bullet as this endeavour of mine seems to be building momentum. The question is now when to quit my day job and devote full time to the wrapping services. Next steps are vacuum bagging and then custom moulding of parts. Already have a few in mind!!

Was looking @ sponsorship in the spring, but business too new and not sure it would take off.

Now I need to find the time to setup a intro email and get more business rolling my way.

Just levelled the pieces last night (wet sanded to 2000 grit) and buffed them, so they look even better than the pictures posted above (just clear coated in those pictures; can't see minute surface imperfections in those pictures.)

Will post pictures tonight before packing them for shipping to California and an anxious M3 owner.....

Thanks guys and here are final pictures of the parts ready to ship. They've been levelled (wet sanded to 2000grit) and buffed. They're on their way to sunny California. The parts were originally silver, and the black is the base paint I apply to ensure the original paint colour does not show through the fabric, but is removed where fitment is critical.












I have a black carbin fibre coupe set including centre console almost ready to ship..... any takers? PM me at the following username (sponsor username) for more details. nachos23 @ carbon-effects.com (include spaces).

Just picked up my first Ferrari parts to wrap from a local Ferrari shop. Will post on the website (maybe a teaser here) the pictures as they are being worked on.... Could be GOOD folks.... Ferrari CF parts are huge $$$ and the owners snap them up like crazy apparently. See how this takes off...... LOL

PM me with any wrapping requests at nachos23 @ carbon-effects.com

Thanks!

Bill

I agree, and that's why I actually discuss client options when before accepting orders. I want to make sure the final product will enhance look and not overwhelm or contrast too much. Ultimately customer choice; I'm paid to wrap what they want.

Most guys have pretty good tastes so far and the trick with coloured trim is know when to stop. I've seen too much when all other pieces are also wrapped; seat surrounds, seat backs, A + B Pillars, etc..... overwelming. But if thats the "look" you like, then more power to you!!

Cool Installed Pictures!

Hey;

Buddy that grabbed 2nd blue set went out today and took some installed pictures for me....

Think it matched up real nice to his Topaz blue. The wood grain shift knob is being addressed. There's one being started tomorrow (black CF) for him to replace the existing one, also one of the pins for the piece over glove box got lost durign shipping so I've sent another down, but as a result, that piece and the radio piece have not been fully installed.






















The M3 set is also installed and is @ a photoshoot with apparently a really hot model.... Pictures promised... Will post when I get those...
