The interior pieces that surround window switches and my radio look horrible. The paint is chipping off and evan if it was not chipping who likes dull silver. I was thinking about repainting them but came across a vinyl that looks exactly like carbon fiber. I chose this not only because it is cheap but alot easier to do than real carbon fiber and the stick on kits stick up an eighth of an inch where ever its installed. I know there will be critics cause it is fake carbon fiber. Look first before passing judgement.

What I started with.


Stripped off all of the paint and sanded.


After Fake carbon fiber.


Some pics installed.



I will add pictures of radio surround once completed.

Looks really nice in the grey interior. :thumb: I don't think it would look so good in a tan one though... :(

The vinyl is called Di Noc there are several places on the web to get it. One place is carbonfibergear.com. You will need 3m primer and a heat gun in order to install it though.
