I've got my vinyl kit with me in the car too so it's literally just getting the time and I'll do it!!

Have something to contribute?

Did it quickly so wrapped it on the car, I'm going to get new one and wrap it off the car top get a better result, but this will do for now!

Sorry for the poor quality pictures!

Fairly easy, I cut a strip that was about 6 inches wide, then heated it gently and applied it. I made sure it was firmly stuck then cut the excess with a scalpel. It's a bit of a rush/bodge job but I have plans to either buy a new lip and wrap it or carbon dip it...

But this will do for now!

As long as your careful you'll be ok, I'm waiting to see how long before it peels as its not wrapped round on the top in some places as I couldn't get the credit card down the gap!!

I will take a good pic tomorrow I promise!

Anyone tried fitting a Mondeo MK4 steering into ford focus like this ? Instructions translated using google is a pretty unclear. Just wonder anyone here has done it and could write a guide in english :) Would be awesome to have cruise control and all the fancy buttons for our tdci.

Today was a boring day.....

So I got the carbon vinyl out again!!!

Fairly pleased with the results, next step will be the radio surround and associated centre console plastic!

I may even get the red "S" logo cut in vinyl for the steering wheel...

Haha get out there and do them Preee!!

I had a spare hour while the other half was getting her nails done, carbon wrapped her bonnet lip and the two side bits of the wheel, then did the bottom one when I got back...

Was gonna wash the car but it's almost freezing here already and don't wanna create the ice rink lol!

So I'm open to carbon wrapping ideas, centre console is definitely one, thought about rear boot lip, not sure though..

what about your mirrors, outer grill trim, roof? forget that, when you doing the honeycombe grill?
i spoke to a chap on stoc forum and he does this for others and charges £60 for the conversion, he said he uses strong superglue and a few coats of paint to cover up and super glue marks. get busy!
