I've had people PM me to see if they can use my materials to wrap their interior trim pieces, and the answer to that is yes. I figure I'll post some pictures for you guys to show you some examples of how it looks like. Even though I am not much of a carbon fiber person myself, I think it makes the interior trim pieces look great. The material is even textured, so it has a nice feel to it.

Here's pictures of an E92's interior that I wrapped in the 3M carbon fiber di-noc vinyl material:









Here's the center console area and side door switches on a 350z:

I've had people PMing me for pictures of the carbon fiber material. So I am going to repost these pictures here in this thread for those who haven't seen pictures of it in my other threads.

Here's another car that I did while I was up in norcal doing some vinyl wraps. This car was around the Hayward area. The car is a white IS250, and I did his roof in the 3M 1080 gloss black carbon fiber material. It was the first car that I actually had used the material on for the roof. These pictures will also give those who have other cf parts a good idea of how the carbon fiber 3M 1080 vinyl looks compared to it. Don't mind the uneven marks, those were just water streaks from when I wiped the roof down in the heat. The camera picked those up more than how it looked like in person, or else I would have cleaned it better

This is kind of a two for one deal, so there's going to be more pictures in this post than usual. This white 3rd gen Lexus GS300 came by to have me install a gloss black vinyl roof on his car and while he was here he also decided to tint/smoke his rear tail lights as well. We went with the gloss black vinyl for his roof to give it a factory panoramic look. For the tail lights, I tinted the whole thing and then cut out the clear portions for him. I included a picture that shows what it would have looked like with the clear portion tinted compared to it with the clear portion cut out. The owner of this car came out to me in Anaheim Hills from around Cerritos/north Orange County.

Before:




During (left/driver side is completely tinted, and the right/passenger side has the clear portion cut out):


After:

PM sent.

Not sure why people are still PMing me about pictures or what the differences are between the two carbon fiber materials. So I'll go ahead and just post some pictures of the 3M di noc matte carbon fiber on cars instead of the those interior trim pieces that I have already posted, so you can kind of have a better visual.

I do have matte white, but shipping to Canada for a whole roll is so ridiculously expensive. Something like $150 or so.

Gloss black vinyl roof that I wrapped on a white C350 to give it the panoramic roof effect/look. Owner of this car was in Irvine/Tustin as well. Pretty simple and straight forward look/style
