Interior Trim Wrapped in CF Fabric

Just wanted to share.
Bought couple of yards of CF Fabric from a vendor and tried wrapping my worn out trims. Going to tackle the door handles next.

Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick, you must show me how you did this on the steering wheel. Mine is all worn out, what sort of adhesive did you use and how did you secure it on the other side?

I used 3M 77 Adhesive Spray found at Home Depot.
Yes the lower trim on the steering wheel was the biggest pain in the ass.
You need lots of patience. I had to do that part 3 times in order to make it look right. The fabric is very stretchy so with the right amount of force and strength it does wrap pretty well with good amount of glue
