Very tempting, but I'm gonna stick to my "unique" theme of going NON-CF!

I AM UP FOR THE ROOF CARBONFIBERIZATION. As soon as you get larger sheets. The roof is flat enough. May be I am going to be a Test Lab Rat and buy one sheet and tryto warp something with it first.

Any clue how large the roof is? I'm too lazy right now to go run out and measure it myself.

just curious... would these sheets possibly be a good alternative to buying CF interior trim? could the sheet be used to cover the existing trim and still fit in place and not fall off? if so i might just have to buy a sheet or 2 to cover my trim with...

^ Not likely. I tried to do my headlight trim and had considerable trouble. I am going to research and see if there isn't some method to it that I am missing. While the sheet is flexible, it is only marginally flexible when you are going in 3D. It is fine for 2D, but will not stretch at all. You may get away with doing it on the front parts but I doubt it.

As far as heat goes. I held a hair dryer up to it on high for a considerable amount of time and had no problems with alterations in the material even though that was what I wanted to happen.

I used it on the rear reflectors and it worked okay. I still have to figure out how to get it to work well on the headlight trim. I can't seem to get it into the innermost corner by the grill. After I make another attempt I will once again give you my impressions.

I'm not sure if it would work on the roof either.

Here is a picture of the silver carbon fiber sheet being used on another headlight trim. This one was done by "europass"
Thanks "europass" for the pictues.





Only 1 CF sheet is needed to complete the headlight trim

No problem. Definately a great project to do. The results are not justified in pics and if you have Angel Eyes they show 10x better

Europass, you sticked this on the headlight trim and cut it to the edge? Is that it? Or you have to do something else...??

Thanks

best way is to make a paper template of the headlight trim (that's what i did for my cf headlight trim) and then transfer it onto the cf. in my case i didn't use the cf sheets, but the same method will work just as well.

just as a tip for future DIYers, don't make the template all one piece. make it a 2-piece template taped together. one side for the inside of the headlight trim and the other for the bottom/curve. it's hard getting the paper to contour into that inner corner by the grill.

yes they are all ready to stick on. Nothing else needs to be done other then cutting them out to the shape you want.
