That looks great. I wish I had the patience to do something like that. I tried the cheap faux carbon fiber sticker set and it looked, well like a cheap faux carbon fiber sticker set. I would love to pull my center console out and wrap that, just afraid to screw it up!

Don't do the center console. That would just be too much. Satin the other chrome parts if you want (or better yet, find a V6 with the black pieces that would like to trade), but I'm tellin' ya, don't CF the center console.

Agreed, its easy to go overboardwith this stuff. The center console has been done but it would be challenging

Looks great. Nice and clean looking with teh back painting of your chrome. Paint the rest of your chrome black and call it a day.

Ps what paint did you use and how did you prep the chrome surfaces?

Pss, V6's have black pieces already?

Awesome work. Looks freakin great. Where did you get the vinyl and what paint did you use? I really want to do this in my car. I hate the look of the cheap chrome.

Looks Great. I like what you did to the vents. I hate the way the vents stick out with the chrome rings. What kind of paint did you use? I want to do this to mine, especially if they just pull out.

Looks great, I got the 3M DI-NOC a while back and covered my dash too but left the vents alone. I'll have to post it up just to show the difference.

I didn't take my dash apart for the install, in hindsight it probably would have made it easier.

I'm not a big fan of carbon fiber, but that looks great. What kind of paint did you use, and did you need any kind of prep/primer to get it to stick decent?

I used regular primer and flat black Rustoleum paint. Sanded with 320 beforehand.

That looks great! Where did you purchase the CF and was it hard taking apart the dash? Tools you recommended? I want to do this too, but the fear of the unknown, ie breaking something in the dash, is what's holding me back.

I'm not a fan of Carbon Fiber but I must say that looks GREAT man!
The black on black carbon fiber look really looks classy instead of "ricey".
I am indeed impressed!

I Plastidipped the steering wheel trim and I'm happy with the result. Now I'm trying to find a black shifter from a base model but coming up empty.
