Guys, I finally got round to wrapping my chrome bonnet trim with gloss carbon fibre off ebay, from this seller: http://stores.ebay.c...id=p4634.c0.m14

I took the trim off using the guide on here and prepped it by cleaning, sanding and warming the trim up. I then warmed up the wrap and applied it so the whole trim (front and back) was covered by one piece. then i fixed it in place using double sided sticky tape (extra strong type) after cleaning up and warming the area before applying the trim.

so, whaddya thinks?

thanks Paul, the carbon film I usd is ok but could have been better. You cant stretch it at all and is too thick in my opinion but as it was a trial and error jo I wasnt too fussed and it came out ok thankfully. I needed to do something to do on a wet Sunday afternoon!

Do it Dave, new sticky strips will hold it down fine. Thanks for the guide, came in very handy.
