    3M Di-Noc Interior In Progress

    Hey guys. I decided I wanted to get rid of the factory fake carbon fiber by replacing it with....fake carbon fiber. I decided to give some of the 3M Di-Noc Carbon Fiber vinyl a shot. This stuff is absolutely amazing. It molds to any surface with a little heat, and has easily wrapped a lot of my interior pieces so far. I'm going to do a couple more on top of just what was "carbon fiber" from the factory, but i'm not going to go overboard. Here are some shots in progress, and the progress i've made so far. For this much, I've used a 12"x48" portion off of amazon for $30. I ordered another 24"x48" to wrap the rest as well as some other things to experiment with.

    The 2 panels next to the shifter is what gave me the idea, I couldn't stand how ugly those things were:


    Then I decided the dash needed is as well, so here it is in progress:



    And completed:


    And the completed dash:



    You can see the vast difference in the old to new in this photo. Waiting on more material to do the rest of the doors:


    And the door (i did it without taking the door panel off. A plastic squeegee works WONDERS):


    I think it looks freaking awesome for $30 invested so far. For the whole car (and a ton left over) I'll have invested about $90 and 3-5 hours of my time. I think it's about as good as you can get.

    When I take off the shifter panel to wrap it, i'm going to do a walkthrough on how to remove the piece, as I know everyone has been asking for a video. I'll also do a video of how to wrap it if anyone else wants to go for it. I did NOT use any 3M adhesion primer, as I want to be able to take this off cleanly if I want. As of now, it doesn't seem like it's going anywhere, but you never know. If I get a year out of it, i'll be happy, and just rewrap the parts next year.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    Thanks!

    Captain

    Looks great! Was just thinking about doing this to mine. How hard is it to get the dash pieces off? I've got that fake wood I want to cover up, but my steering wheels has the wood too. Think the vinyl would stick to the steering wheel?

    I don't know the different names to all the color interiors, I just know the standard piano black, and that's what i'm doing in carbon fiber slowly. I'll do write-ups on how to take the pieces off. The Dash pieces are VERY easy to remove, you literally just pry them off with a trim panel removal tool. it took me about a minute to get all 3 dash pieces off, and they just push back into place. Very easy.

    Re: 3M Di-Noc Interior In Progress

    man, I found a tint shop local with a scrap piece of this di noc stuff about 60"x12". I figured Id go pick it up this afternoon instead of ordering online....until he told me he'd sell this scrap piece for $70!!! I told him to keep it. Im all about supporting local businesses, but thats obscene.

    Hopefully they weren't in MA. I bought a big piece and, as a favor, let them keep the rest to play with or use on any future projects I had...
