You will need an airgun for that tool from Halfrauds. The garage that did mine tried to use one of them and it wouldnt grip. I reckon it was half a mm too small

Hydrodipping is hard work....especially with anything with holes in it.

Good luck with whatever you end up trying

I used to have a standard silver interior trim....ive tried painting, hydro-dipping, all sorts and then found a shop near me that sells good quality wrap. So I gave it a try.....and messed it up by rushing it.

 

Tried it again and took my time. Used a heat gun to make it nice and stretchy and i was mega impressed with the results.

 

This is the actual wrap I used - http://www.ebay.co.u...=item35c6f5219a

 

And here is the finished article.....

All you need is the wrap and a good quality craft knife. Don't overlap the edges and use plenty of heat and stretch a little bit at a time so that you don't split the wrap.

 

I have some spare that would be enough to do that stereo surround. I'd be more than happy to do it for you if you wanted to chuck it in the post.

That makes sense but I have wired them up the exact way I have done my footwells and they dont work the same. I checked the cable that I am using it is the one that falls away when the lights go off.

Baffled me this one
