    I used kenriko's pattern... with some minor modifications, but used 3M Di-Noc Architectural Vinyl. It went down amazingly well in. So easy compared to 3M 1080. The last touch was a hairdryer at the cup holes, and it layed down perfectly. If you have your own cutter, this is the best vinyl you can buy, and well worth the price for the amateur. You cannot screw it up. If tyou pull the vinyl out of shape, hit it with a hairdryer and it goes back to the original shape. it also has an amazing 4D pattern to the 3M Di-Noc Carbon Fiber vs the 3M1080, which they call 3D. It actually has depth.

    Damn, wish I would have seen this before I bought all my wrap stuff... well, I’ll swap it out at one point.

    I am going to redo the center section to line up the carbon lines better.....but it is so easy to lift it off and reapply.

    Looks pretty good to me. I guess that would be one disadvantage of going with something with lines. I might just do a brushed metal look. No lines to line up. Looks hard enough as it is without having to do the lines too.

    Actually Di-Noc makes it super easy. You can peel it off and start over. Unlike 1080, it gets stretched and you have to get a new piece..

    What did you use to cut it, just an xacto knife ? Can you share the template?

    I bought a cheap Brother Scan N Cut, vinyl cutter on Amazon. Has lots of uses. Pattern was on line ( search open source pattern), but I modified it for my own needs.

    yea, stole em. Found them on line. Mine photos had really bad light and you could not see the carbon fiber stand out. Will get some today, as I cut my own.

    Does anyone sell these 3M Di-Noc kits? I don't have access to a cutter. I would like the Carbon Fiber or Brushed Titanium. What choices do they come in?

    3M DI-NOC comes in about 100 different choices, a ton of wood wraps. But I think you can find Black Carbon on Amazon.

    Isn't DI-NOC permanent?

    It does have a permanent adhesive, so it would be difficult to remove. Still, it does look really good.

    From fellers.com :
    What's the difference between 3M DI-NOC and 3M 1080 Carbon Fiber?
    They both have carbon fiber and brushed metallic options but these films are not the same. DI-NOC is thicker, has a permanent adhesive, and is not designed for vehicle wraps. You can use it to wrap a dash board or flat surface, but don't expect it to come off easily. DI-NOC is used most often in architectural applications like cabinets, tables, refrigerators or even sinks. 3M 1080 has a removable adhesive and is far more conformable than DI-NOC and it's available in 60" width making it ideal for vehicle wraps. 1080 is the way to go for vehicle wraps.

    I have changed mine 3 times now. It comes off fairly easy, but not as easy as 1080. But a little "goo off" solves any adhesive issues. White Carbon is my next one.

    Oooh white carbon... that sounds amazing. I'd like to see it since the image I pulled online seems sort of "cream" and not so much white. It would have to match the seats or it would look off. Their black CF looks really good though.
