Can anyone give me these estimates? :)

Hey guys so i have a question that i hope you guys can give an estimated answer to....

Approximately how much would it cost to:

- Carbon Fiber wrap the top of my car
- Carbon Fiber wrap my mirror caps, and the triangles
- Carbon Fiber wrap the trim of my grill
- Carbon Fiber wrap the interior wood trim of my car

I would like to know apprx how much ill end up dropping on it total ( planning on doing it all at the same time, not sure if that matters )

Also on the side how much would it cost to replace my interior cloth ( pillars and all ) with black suede ?

I know i should go to actual shops that do these things to get a quote but i kind of want to know a little about how much it will be before i actually go..

Dont bite me :/

You can do all of those yourself if you have time and patience, no need to pay a shop for those things, might need a heat gun for edges.

I could..But couple of flaws with that:

1) unfortunately i am neither patient nor have the skills capable for that lol
2) i personally feel like that i rather have the work done professionally cause i dont want my car to be or look half a*sed ( been there not going back )

But i will consider that thank you..

No offense, but if you do what you looking to do your car will not only look half-as*ed, it'll look full as*ed and you'll be down a pile of money to boot.

Post in a public forum, you get public answers.

Do maintenance, or save for it. These cars look great as is.

Asking on the forums is pointless. Post in the regional forums if anything. It's going to vary based on location. The best thing to do is to just call shops and get quotes.

- Carbon Fiber wrap the top of my car (buy the material and DIY, cost I'm not sure, probably $50 in material)
- Carbon Fiber wrap my mirror caps, and the triangles (don't do it...)
- Carbon Fiber wrap the trim of my grill (don't do it and it's hard as hell to wrap it)
- Carbon Fiber wrap the interior wood trim of my car (but material online, $20 and DIY)

All it will cost is your dignity and our respect.

The title in your post says "Anyone" therefore you did ask for it. rude.

Hit the search button and you find find tons of posts about wrapping roofs and trim and they will reference how much they spent (or someone always asks) .

No one does mirrors or grills because the cost of actual CF parts < the headache and potential half a$$ed look to pinch a few pennies.

You can get quotes about headliner but as someone stated, look in local forums and if they are not populated with much activity like mine, hit up google for shops in the area.

boom

Do you suppose anyone makes a vinyl wrap that maybe I can put on my body, with muscles and tribal tattoos and whatnot? I don't really wanna go to the gym and eat healthy or anything, and I've heard they use needles to give you tattoos (ouch!), so I'm just planning on faking it. I'm pretty sure nobody will notice the difference. I just want to look strong and cut so that everyone will shower me with attention. Don't hate! Faux is 'fo reals, yo!
