    I'm thinking about doing the rubber textured black shifter bezel in carbon. That would be the only reason I add carbon to the steering wheel. Still on the fence though.

    Here is my shifter bezel (bad picture), I wrapped it in Carbon Vinyl and have a carbon fiber style shift boot. I'm about to peel off that vinyl send it in to be Hydro Dipped for a more professional look!

    hmm. I was thinking more along the lines of getting some real carbon weave overlayed, resin'd and polished on top of the bezel.

    I don't want to deal with pealing and scratches. I bought a piece of 3M dinoc to play around with and determined that a true overlay will look best.

    Peeling and scratches has not been an issue for over three years, if you know what you're doing this stuff works fantastic (entire cars are wrapped in vinyl these days with resounding success). That said, the hydrodipped is more of a polished look. Real Carbon Fiber can be a biotch to get looking right, if you do go that route make sure you get the correct resin as a lot of them dry yellow. Personally for an interior plastic piece, actual carbon fiber is overkill IMO as you're not getting any durability or weight saving benefits from it.

    Check out this Hydro Dipped Gallery, comparable if not way better quality that you're going to get from a DIY carbon fiber job and you won't spend hours with a buffer and bottle of polish.
