Thought i'd have a go at carbon wrapping, so i picked up some small bits from the scrap yard and gave it a go, see what you think.

All done in genuine 2x2 twill.

They arent perfect to be honest but for a first go im happy with them. Im not sure if they are good enough to sell on especially if you are a perfectionist lol but if you are will to take a small risk i might consider it, after all practice makes perfect lol. Cheers for the comments guys

Look pretty good to me for a first crack mate. Liking the interior stuff, nice one. Exterior door handles next :)

How do you get that shiney finish? I had a try on my B-Pillars, come out well, held out through the rain so far.

i used 3 coats of laqure (how ever you spell it) then left them for a few days to harden up, then lots of elbow grease with cutting paste and polish.

good on you mate - is far from an easy job, just far too time consuming for me - impossible trying to do it with my Family!

Door handles look good - am getting mine done but using a pro
Love the gear stick surround - looks like a genuine part

Streamline are bringing the wiper backing plate out in full carbon in next few weeks in case any one fancies one
