Sure thing! It wasn't too difficult, just took some learning. I did a lot of watching tutorials on YouTube and mistakes were made. So first, the items I bought were viynl wrap and chrome edge trim. You don't have to do glossy black and silver chrome, but that's what I chose. A wood grain would look nice if you have a tan interior.

Also helpful! Trim pry tools: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00D7XNQHG/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1

First, take a look on YouTube for videos on removing the radio, because that will tell you how to remove all the trim pieces. Make sure to be VERY careful, the plastic clips can break easily. For the side trim pieces, also look on YouTube or the internet on how to remove those. They'll do a much better job at explaining than I will!

Applying a wrap is fairly easy, it just takes patience and a little bit of skill. I recommend doing easy pieces first before more complex pieces like the vents and top center console panel (which was super hard!). Look on YouTube for tutorials on how to wrap, there are some great videos out there explaining the process. You'll need a heat gun or hair dryer if you want to really do a solid job, as well as a razor. For the vents, I trimmed around the small indent by the opening and carefully cut around the indentation by the wheel that opens and closes them. It's very tricky to do but if you're careful it will look pretty nice.

The Chrome edge trim is pretty easy to do, just shove it into any gaps that you want to line with trim. If you're careful with how much you use, that one pack should cover most of the car. Try not to go too excessive or it will look silly. Some panels will be really hard to force the trim into, so I recommend some sort of smooth tool like the butt of a screwdriver to press it into place.

All in all it took me about 2 days to do all the work, and I had to purchase a new piece of trim from a junkyard because I was careless. Don't rush it, take your time, and make sure you educate yourself as much as you can (YouTube videos/guides)

If you have any questions, let me know! Also, send me a picture of your car if you end up doing it, I'd love to see how it turns out!

I know this isn't everyone's bag, but I bought a sheet of 3M carbin fiber vinyl wrap 60"X 12" for under 25 bucks and made my own.

Its extremely easy to do really. Precut your size, score your camera edge and the edge of the frame with your nail or a plastic score tool and gently cut there with a fresh xacto.

Fits perfectly, exact same material that you're getting from any skin distributer and there's a plethora of patterns and colors. Yes I said plethora!

If anyone is curious I guess I could do a quick pic demo and links for tools. I'm a sculptor and have this stuff already but it's easy to get and do. And you'll have plenty of material left to use on other devices in the future!

u/pointer_to_null · 2 pointsr/teslamotors

Unless you're powder coating, I'd leave calipers alone. The paint never lasts as long as they're advertised to. Besides, the grey/silver calipers look nice even if left stock.

(relatively) inexpensive mods I've done:

  • Window tint; not only looks good, but saves you $$$ over time as your car uses less energy to keep the cabin cool
  • if you have aero wheels, you can take off the hubcap and cover the center hole and lugnuts with a kit that costs $50 from Tesla.
  • Might be placebo, but I believe this helps wind noise:
    RPMTesla makes one too, but costs more and they have less than stellar customer service, according to this sub.
  • Full chrome delete may be pricey if you pay someone else, but there are inexpensive wrap for just the door handles on amazon, and are easy to install. Your hands will thank you on hot sunny days.
  • Tesla's paint repair kit. It's a great kit and I've already repaired several rock chips on the side panels, hood and front bumper and they disappeared completely. Follow their video instructions. You'll never consider an expensive wrap after learning how to do this properly.
  • Not exterior, but /u/kenriko's excellent center console wrap really transforms the fingerprint-magnet interior.
u/JesusClausIsReal · 1 pointr/motorcycles

What everyone else is saying is right, with normal wrap material, especially glossy, that would actually make the imperfections in the plastic more noticeable probably. But they do make this carbon fiber wrap material, here is an example on amazon, that stuff is more of a satin finish and the texture of the carbon makes it very effective at hiding imperfections in the material below. And it looks pretty badass too boot, that would work to cover your fairing I think, just not sure if you want your bike to be black carbon fiber.

Also keep in mind, that it will not be easy to do. Especially if this is your first attempt at anything like wrapping or vinyl work. I myself work full time in a vinyl shop and pretty often wrap full vehicles at work, and I wrestled for hours getting the plastic trim pieces on my bike covered in the carbon wrap. It is absolutely doable though, just make sure you clean the fairings well and have a hair dryer handy to help you stretch it around the curves. If you do end up going the wrap route you'll definitely want to take your fairings apart so you can wrap them much easier than trying to do it on the bike. Plus with them off you can leave a little extra wrap around all the edges and wrap it around the edges and stick it to the back, so that no edges will be exposed and possibly start peeling up.

u/Chill33 · 3 pointsr/Bass

If it's peel and stick its definitely not carbon fiber. It'll be some sort of weaved plastic with an adhesive backing similar to duct tape. 3m makes something like this, alot of people will wrap interior trim pieces in their cars with this because the weave makes it look like carbon fiber. Personally, i think it looks alright, but i also have fairly extensive carbon fiber experience, so my view is probably skewed from the norm.

No matter if you do the peel and stick or do carbon fiber you're gonna have some issues not getting wrinkles and air bubbles due to the shape. My suggestion would be cut out a front piece, a back piece, and a strip that runs along the edge. This will make everything much smoother, but there will be a seam.

If you want real carbon fiber....fair warning it will not come out looking as good as you hope. To get that deep clear coat looking surface that carbon is layed up against a polished steel mold of that surface so that the resin is perfectly smooth and clear. Without a mold like that it'll never looks as good.

What you could try is wrapping the bass in carbon and pouring the resin over it. Then polish and add clear coats until it looks good. If you're going to do this make sure you practice a few times first, once that resin sets you're never getting the carbon off.

Tl:dr - If you don't like the color of your bass my suggestion is to sand it down and repaint it.

Edit: here's the 3M stuff http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0058DIDTY/ref=pd_aw_sim_263_2?ie=UTF8&dpID=41cKvFFtiKL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL100_SR100%2C100_&refRID=1E55DSZAWGXQZYB7AJAK

u/PM_ME_FOR_REFERRAL · 15 pointsr/TeslaLounge
  1. The model 3 comes with 2 cables: one type 2 cable that you can use in public charging stations and one cable that allows your car to be plugged into a regular socket. This is in Europe, it might be slightly different somewhere else.
  2. The cable that plugs into a normal household socket (220V in Europe) will add about 14 km of range per hour.
  3. No idea on this one.
  4. In your case, it makes sense to get the Tesla wallbox since it will add around 70km of range per hour. It costs around 500 euro for the charger and you will also need to get a licensed electrician to install it. Installation costs vary greatly and depend on the location of the charger and your current house setup. On tesla.com you can find pre-approved electricians for your area and you can usually get a free quote from them for installation costs.
  5. I drive lots of narrow roads and I do see the sensors turn red and sometime i hear a chime when I park to close to something. It is a non issue, the car is just overly cautious. Autopilot works great on all roads where you can enable it. You cannot enable it on single narrow roads, it only works on multi lane roads.
  6. The general consensus seems to be that Kenriko's wraps are the best. https://www.amazon.com/Kenriko-Tesla-Model-Brushed-Console/dp/B07CZLGZRR
  7. After months with the LR AWD, the acceleration still puts a smile on my face. Everytime someone new gets in my car and I show it off, it blows them away. Performance models offer even crazier acceleration, 4.2 seconds is still a lot faster than most cars out there. The beauty of it is that you can just use it all the time too. With an ICE, you need to make sure the engine is warm, it makes a lot of noise which draws attention and you feel like you are hurting the car when you go above 4000 RPM. With a Tesla, you can just push the pedal every time without having to worry about this.
u/iDingo91 · 2 pointsr/civic

Hey folks, just real quick. I want to thank /u/jrey0617 for the inspiration to do this. My Fiancé and I are going with Mass Effect themes for our cars and seeing how he did his made us want to do the same. Also a huge shoutout to my Fiancé for sitting down and applying the vinyl with me.

The Android Head Unit is from Dasaita...or Phoenix, depending on who you order through. They are the same and comes plug and play. I want to start doing some reviews with the head unit because for some reason, it was difficult for me to find someone who owned the product for a year or longer. I finally found one who said they hadn't been having issues, so I took the plunge. As far as reviews go, I'm thinking I'll do the following assuming I still own the product. It'll be a 1 week, 1 month, 6 month, and a 1 year review. Mostly, I'm hoping it'll last that long and the "reviews" will be more of updating my opinion on the device, what features I wish it had, what it had and doesn't work anymore, etc.

Anyways, here is the link to everything I bought. Everything was purchased through Amazon:

u/dak_181 · 1 pointr/ECR_Plus

I got sick of dealing with keeping my copper mod clean so I wrapped it with this stuff


Came out pretty nice


Though sanding and a clear coat is a good way to go if you like the copper look.

That sounds like a ton of hassle to verify authenticity. And knowing the capacity matches what it should doesn't necessarily mean it's legit. Would be more reasonable to buy from a trusted seller and learn what to look for to spot fakes. This should help


No idea on your last question, you'll have to do some research to find what kinda amp limit it has.

u/proxy69 · 3 pointsr/Lexus

RR racing has a chip that came out last summer that adds like 15 horsepower (so they claim) that costs $350. Also, I love my K&N cold air intake on my 350, it's a throaty growl when you step on it and it supposedly added 12 horses. The intake system also improved mpg +2 on the highway. I also replaced all interior lights with LED's myself with a kit I found on eBay, very nice bright white light, it replaces side door lights and trunk lights too. Ummm I replaced my gear shift knob with a Lexus certified F Sport shifter and I also carbon fiber vinyl wrapped the door trim on my F-Sport. Also went with 15% tint. The only two things I want to do on mine is to powder coat my brake calipers F Sport blue and add a full catback exhaust.

After seeing what /u/SgtDwightSchrute1 built the other day, I wanted to give it a go as well! I took most of the parts he used and linked in his thread, but I went with a few more switches as well as a set of POV buttons that have a mode switch to switch them from POV directions to an X-Y axis. The Green button is for the POV mode, and I also moved the Mode LED to the face of the box so you can tell what mode it is in.

I also added some vinyl carbon fiber wrap to give it a nice finish!

I wrapped my roof panel myself(with a friend). The material cost about $50. It was deff a learning experience but it looks pretty dang good for my first time. My next project will be to wrap the 3 grill pieces. If I take them off and wrap each one individually I imagine it won't be too bad with an extra set of hands. I recommend you watch a couple YouTube videos and give it a go yourself.

I bet that will turn out looking great! I love and wish I had that color scheme.

u/Allawipasha · 3 pointsr/typewriters

I used an adhesive vinyl leather like material to cover it. I bought it from amazon. Here is the link:


Make sure to clean the case very well so it will be easier for the adhesive to stick to the wood.

u/InvaderNate · 2 pointsr/Acura

If the carbon film ends up looking like a bit too much you could get some satin film or some glossy black film, both are 1' x 5' which should be plenty to do all of the door trim pieces. You could also plastidip it and try different finishes with that, it is easily removable. But, I would only try that after I had made the surface nice and flat, which it may already be but I can't judge that from the photos. Good luck!

u/RAM_ROD_UR_MUM · 5 pointsr/FixedGearBicycle

If its painted over with a top coat, the only solutions would be to remove it and repaint it or cover it up with something like you mentioned. On my old fame, I put some car vinyl, like this, over the logos I didnt like and it turned out really nice.

u/poblopuablo · 8 pointsr/sffpc

You could always put the io at the back, put a vinyl decal to cover the bottom (now front) and add some feet with a 90° PSU cable connector.

$10 for vinyl wrap or a cut to size sheet of acrylic and some double sided tape.... Or leave it is is lol

  • if it was me, I'd do a sheet of acrylic and cover the whole front of the case down to the table so you don't see the PSU cable sticking out of the bottom of the case from the front view... Keeps it cleaner looking

    $10- Tall adhesive feet (could go shorter for cheaper, but you want them tall to fit the PSU extension)

    $3 low profile PSU extension (these are lower profile than what you'll find on Amazon... I spent a few days looking lol) Other super low profile connectors can be found on taobao and purchased through super buy

    So an additional ~$25 to make it work... But that's up to you if you want to go that route. :)
u/halcyoncmdr · 3 pointsr/TeslaLounge

Agreed, but I ended up buying some roughly color matching vinyls on Amazon for the handles that leave a very slight chrome outline visible. The rest of the chrome looks fine on the Midnight Silver Metallic in my opinion. Window trim is pretty normal across many cars now, and the side mirror and camera housings aren't terrible looking. The handles now being the same color with a slight chrome outline make the biggest difference for a casual look.

I used that - worked great and looks awesome


EDIT: in addition to there being 2 cupholder pieces by default, there was a note in there that if you screwed part of it up to reach out and they could help you out :)

u/Drackeo · 1 pointr/mazda3

So what I did today.

  • Front Strut Bar Brace
  • Door sill cover/protectors
  • Starting Vinyl Wrapping the interior piano blacks

    To do later

  • Finish Vinyl wrapping everything
  • Speaker, Amp and Sub install
  • Replace Headlight
  • Internal LEDs
  • Foot Well LEDs
  • LED Front Grill Light
  • Dash Cam Install


    This weekend is going to be full of mods. Im taking the car into GeekSquad to get some Kicker Speakers, a Subwoofer and a single channel amp to power the sub. This is the same setup I had in my previous car and it SUNG. So far the speakers of the None Bose kinda suck imo and NEED to change. Im going to be installing a LOT of things hardwired into the car. FootWell LEDs (if they arrive in time), Dashcam and the front grill LEDs.


    The hardest part in my opinion will be getting the plastics wrapped. Im using this vinyl wrap from Amazon and I think It looks AMAZING! Ive never wrapped anything before so Its been a slow process. Ive gotten the rear switch panels done. Let me know what you all think of them! I did these without using heat and even then it wasnt that bad.
u/TheKobayashiMoron · 2 pointsr/teslamotors

The power liftgate mod from teslaoffer.com is a bitch to install but it’s pretty damn awesome.

Center console wraps and such? Kenriko is my preferred option there.

Aftermarket wheels/winter tires etc. TSportline and EV Wheel Direct are good Tesla-specific options.

Other than that, I second the other posts re: Floor mats and wireless charging pads.

u/Wingler000 · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

This was all made with a ruler and an x-acto knife by myself (I probably should've measured it better and had a friend help me).
I used Simcarbon Vinyl Wrap that I bought from amazon (http://www.amazon.com/SimCarbon-Carbon-Fiber-Vinyl-BLACK/dp/B0059XEM9I)

u/Gonji89 · 0 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I'm a fucking computer-building noob and I guarantee you I could build this in a day. Some of this carbon fibre vinyl wrap, some strip LEDs and solderless connectors, mounting hardware, and the computer parts is all you would need. Too easy, man. This guy is not only incompetent if it took him 100 hours, but he is definitely not Master Race.

Edit: Forgot to say, the board it's mounted on and the acrylic sheets for backing the hardware. Just buff the acrylic and put the LEDs behind it, makes it glow like that.

u/BrokeAndBored · 3 pointsr/DIY

There are many varieties of carbon fiber vinyl. The one that gets the most attention, and is of the highest quality, is known as Carbon Fiber Di-Noc by 3M. This particular carbon fiber vinyl does have a texture. The texture and overall look is practically identical to that of real carbon fiber.

You can apply it to most wood products (plywood, OSB, MDF, HDF, ect...) however, the vinyl will show all of the lumps and gaps of what you apply it to. Thus, I would make sure you sand and finish your plywood before application.

If you are really worried about how well the vinyl will hold, you can coat what ever you want to wrap in a thin coat of 3M tape primer. This will give you an extremely solid hold, and is intended for high wear, and high usage applications.

Here is a link to where you can get Di-Noc at a good price:

Carbon fiber wraps? Carbon fiber wraps. Love the look of it, and no more green hands or funky taste. Took me a couple of tries to get a satisfactory application (get your xacto knife out, not scissors) But really happy with the result.

u/TheNargrath · 1 pointr/Luthier

Found it. As I was hoping, it comes in three colors. Laminate up with a nice, thin stripe of a different color in the middle and give it an angled bezel. That'd be pretty slick.

u/Jabrono · 2 pointsr/Moto_Z

It's actually the backplate that came with the phone, I just bought a roll of carbon fiber vinyl, applied it with the help of a space heater, and then "trimmed" the edges, which was almost more like shaving off the excess. Worked way better then I expected TBH.

Next up, chrome surrounding grille. I'm trying to decide between vinyl wrap (nice and cheap) or that all black Fozzy grille I've been seeing on eBay for $199.

I tried painting it first. Looked okay, but not that smooth. I tried applying clear gloss and I guess the paint wasn't dry enough because everything cracked and looked like crap. So I sanded everything off, tried painting once more. It still looked like crap so I sanded everything off again. Many lessons were learned, lots of wasted effort was put forth.

Took about 3 tries per bezel to get it on smoothly. Easiest way was to make sure I had vinyl smoothly attached to surrounding of bezel, then I used a hair dryer to get it hot enough to stretch. I kept pushing the vinyl in the middle until I had enough slack to wrap stuff tight on the inside, then I focused on the outer edge, which was much easier. Cutting a small hole in the middle after some stretching helped, too.

Other hardest part was separating the damn chrome pieces from the black bezel part. Those two pieces are really stuck together. Hard not to break the stupid little tabs.

I'm much happier. The chrome down there was kind of bugging me.

Product used, for those interested;

u/boobeesquisher · 1 pointr/saab

Yes I would advise you to watch a video tutorial on how to. Would be much better than a written one. Only advice I have is to gather 4 or more friends to help you out. I had one person in each corner of the vinyl and one other person on the heat gun when needed. 5 people help made it easy but still required A LOT of patience. Patience is key!! Also, this is the vinyl I ordered. Gave me plenty of room to work with and also extra for wrapping my mirrors :D http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007P6R78A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Hey! It was pretty straight forward... used this:

Just stretched it over the lid and used the little gap between the lid and its lip as a guide to cut the piece out! Its surprisingly easily since its just a flat piece. Let me know if you have any other questions!

u/gcalpo · 5 pointsr/teslamotors

How was your installation experience? Amazon reviews are pretty good except for a couple upset customers that had install troubles. As someone that buys a 2- or 3- pack of phone screen protectors knowing the first one or two will have a bubble or trapped lint, I feel like I need to buy a couple of these. At least they're priced nice at $30.

Edit: Thanks all for your feedback. Definitely adding this to my post-delivery shopping list.

u/CodePhox · 3 pointsr/SteamController

I was aiming to add more texture to the touch pads, sweat and oil can be washed of with eyeglass cleaner and a cotton rag :) but I don't have that problem. I just wanted something that would help my fingers feel navigation on the touch pad. You can use the 'Touch Protect' product but I ordered a similar type of material from amazon and made my own for cheaper.. pluss, by doing it yourself you can pick the color and texture you want from the many more options available.


Cut a larger square shape than the touch pads, apply then cut off (following the edge of the touch pad) with a utility blade.

Kenriko Tesla Model 3 Matte White Console Wrap Kit

So I just pulled the trim off by looking up some YT videos and then took the glossy trim out and then wrapped it with a basic 3M style vinyl wrap (link below). To pull the trim be careful not to pull in a odd angle, can crack or rip out the plastic tabs.

I used a hair dryer to heat up the wrap and then pressed it to the plastic. You can use a heat gun as well if you'd like. I recommend using a wrap that has micro perforations so the air doesn't get trapped easily.

Sorry I took so long to reply :) If you have more questions just let me know! Also it is a 2014 Mazda, so not many videos on this year or later, mainly vids for '13 and earlier.

Thanks! I did it myself using this kit on Amazon, really easy for the trim and loads cheaper than paying someone.

Your other option would be this: https://www.amazon.com/3M-G12-GLOSS-BLACK-Vinyl/dp/B007P6R78A
Most people seem to think it lasts at least 3-5 years on cars and is completely removable when you decide you are done with it. It should be pretty easy to prep your plastics and apply it.

u/Banjerpickin · 1 pointr/paintball

If anyone else wants to have a go at this I wrapped with some 3M Scotchprint vinyl:


Very easy to work with and forgiving.

The curing chamber is an open cube used for making shelves that I coated with a roll of vinyl mirror sticker in the inside. I cut a hole in the top and inserted a LED curing lamp. Since the box is made of hollow boards, the top hole is larger and the inside hole is a step for the lamp to rest on. I made a door out of scrap plywood and painted it black and attached it to the box with a piano hinge. Then I lined the edge of the inside of the door with weather stripping and added a magnetic clasp and printed a knob on my form 2. Add in a solar turntable to rotate the parts and you are good to go!

The finishing kit is nice because it contains the mess of cleaning the parts in IPA after you take them off of the build tray.

u/finitelement · 3 pointsr/subaru

3m stuff is the best and it comes in all sorts of colors and patterns (carbon fiber or wood). Installing it yourself isn't too bad. You can watch a video on youtube for it.

u/SgtKashim · 4 pointsr/motorcycles

Lesse. The instinct will be to paint over. Spray paint can compromise the shell integrity and foam of a helmet. If you go over em, make sure you get paint that's safe for a helmet.

You might try vinyl decal stickers. I did my helmet with pinstripe tape, which is very similar in terms of construction. Try something like so - just cut a big stripe and run it up the middle of the helmet.

u/cumboyadvance · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

I used this: https://www.amazon.com/VViViD-Black-Carbon-Release-Technology/dp/B00L9J4JRG/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=vinyl+wrap&qid=1556736641&s=gateway&sr=8-3

But they have other colors and finishes. The material is nice, kind of like a rip stop fabric you’d find on a tent or something. Maybe not the best description. It is textured because it’s the carbon one, I imagine the others would be smooth. I’ve really liked the finish, it feels better on my hands and doesn’t get hot or tacky.

u/CTaylorR · 2 pointsr/f150

Thanks! Heres the amazon link to the vinyl I bought. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007EEXIXG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 , it matches the tuxedo black very nicely , I used a heat gun and a $5 detailing kit from 3m.

u/lennoxonnell · 3 pointsr/longboarding

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0059XCVVO/ You'll also need a sharp razor to trim it neatly. I'm assuming you have one on hand, if not just get one of those too.

u/smayonak · 1 pointr/SteamController

Really nice work!

It's probably a bit easier to use a vinyl wrap or a gun grip. You can find cheap carbon fiber textured vinyl wrap and gun grip on Amazon. I'd recommend gun grip as it's designed to be held with sweaty hands.

u/Spennydix · 1 pointr/ft86

I actually just ordered the cheapest black vinyl wrap from Amazon. I did a pretty shitty job of applying it, but I think when it starts peeling I will have it done professionally. I'm really liking it!

Here is the exact film I got:


u/sushiman42 · 2 pointsr/headphones

This one is the one I bought, I've used it all though, so I'll probably buy some more. Great stuff though.

u/BATHTUBSURFER · 1 pointr/teslamotors

flaws are not bad...most are little gripes, still best car for the buck. Don't let the small gripes push you away from the car. My 100K Mercedes had a longer list of gripes and so did my $60K BMW. No perfect car in the market, somewhere a manufacturer has to make a concession or will try something that does not work that well.

- Handles inside and outside are a pain to explain to people but I love them now I am familiar.

- Frunk closing feels like you are going to bend the hood and is a fingerprint magnet.

- Trunk no auto close

- Wiper modes do suck, but hopefully, a software update will fix them

- Piano black console - I bought a wrap because it is a dust, fingerprint, and hair magnet. $30 on Amazon and 1 hour to install myself. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FZ7MNFN/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

- Tesla Dashcam feature is not working great, but I bought a $30 dashcam on eBay and installed it in 15 mins with wires hidden. example: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1080P-HD-WiFi-Hidden-Car-Vehicle-DVR-Camera-Video-Recorder-Dash-Cam-Night-Vision/122813143365?epid=26009774471&hash=item1c983bd945:rk:1:pf:0

- Cellphone key walkup works 50% of the time and I have to dig my phone out and click unlock. (not really all that bad)

- Delivery. I went through delivery hell. I would say 10% of buyers have gone through delivery hell. If you are unlucky they force you to be an asshole and it sucks. But people I know that had no issues loved the process.

- Make sure you download or print a delivery checklist and spend a good amount of time checking the car out before driving off. My car was flawless, granted they did not remove the shipping protection residue all the wy but made them clean it up while I waited. Other people have had panel gap and paint problems. Don't get lost in the excitement, spend a lot of time inspecting the paint.

- I Owe You. If your car has an I OWE YOU like for wheels, floormats, spoiler etc. just know Tesla is a total shit show of making I OWE YOUs right. I took delivery with wrong wheels and I am coming up on 3 months of "sorry, we do not know when the correct wheels will be here". I have read similar problems with I OWE YOUs. Tesla is not BMW where a I OWE YOU is resolved as fast as humanly possible, Tesla lets them sit in a file somewhere.

For anyone wondering, the material he used called 3M DI-NOC and it's pretty cheap and holds up well from what I've heard.

u/CrazyNeon99 · 1 pointr/gaming

These are the steps that I took

  1. Sand the board and apply a thin finish on the bare wood.

  2. I got some carbon fiber wrap of amazon for $7ish and applied that to the deck, trimming off the excess that was hanging off the edges.

  3. Taped the whole board with masking tape

  4. I used a website called blockposters.com (http://www.blockposters.com/) to print out the logo onto multiple pieces of paper so i could get the correct size I wanted.

  5. After taping the logo on, I used a raser to cut out the logo, going through all 3 layers down to the bare board.

  6. Now that I had the logo cut out of the carbon fiber with the tape covering it I used a flat white spray primer to prepare the areas of paint

  7. After the primer was dry I applied the blue paint in a couple light coats to ensure it sprayed on evenly

  8. When that was dry I removed the masking tape off of the whole thing and sprayed on a couple coats of a glossy clear coat.

  9. For the trucks I just lightly sanded them and applied the paint with a clear coat

The top layer is just the regular plexi, but I threw a cheap $10 vinyl wrap on.

The switches on the front are cherry rocker switches, which you can get here and here, although mine aren't connected since I don't really find the tournament lockout or LS/DP/RS switcher useful.

u/InvAdeRekiM · 1 pointr/VinylWrap

I would check Vivvidshop and MetroRestyling also.. even Amazon has a lot of vivvid’s vinyl wrap for great pricing...

u/immortalalchemist · 1 pointr/TeslaLounge

Get the center console wrap from Kenriko. A lot of people have said great things about his products


Edit nvm you have the wrap. Next logical thing would be to take the whole thing apart and paint it yourself or find a shop willing to do it.

Yeah, it's this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L9J4JRG/. I got the smallest one, 1 ft x 5 ft. I would really recommend ordering one of the squeegee smoothing cards also. I didn't have one, so I improvised with a card and it didn't work too well. I bought these for my next attempt: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PNPY5XX.

This is slightly glossier than the rest of the car at first, but overtime you grow to like it.

u/Wuzupmyhomiz · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I would say using something like a mirror sticker sheet on a cut-to-fit peice of acrylic is likely what they have done.

Best of luck, though. It would be complicated but I'm sure the look in the right build, like the one you showed off, would be killer.

u/AeonAnimus · 49 pointsr/projectcar

So i work for a vehicle wrapping and signage business, and usually we deal this sort of stuff in the regular and my go-to liguid for jobs like this is called "rapid remover", Amazon link below And this stuff works wonders, all you need is to spray this on liberally, then give it about 5 minutes and then use some type of plastic squeegy to remove the thick glue off the door, and finally spray again and use paper towel to remove the remaining residue.

Really depends on quality and where you source it from. Here's an Amazon link to 3m wrap

It's all in the skill of application. Just like paint...

u/DorkHelmet72 · 3 pointsr/Cartalk

Hexane will dissolve most glues without harming plastics. It flashes off really fast though, and wear gloves, it can soak through your skin. We do vinyl graphics on signs and the adhesive removers we use work well to. Rapid remover is one. Might have to order some online. Grimco is one of my suppliers but I’ll bet amazon has some too.

yup, found it

u/TheThirdStrike · 1 pointr/DIY

Honestly, I think you should have gone with a carbon fiber vinyl wrap.

I guess technically, you still could.

Or you can buy some carbon fiber "car wrap" for little money on Amazon and do something like that. I am thinking of doing this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FXYDGCM/ref=cm_sw_r_api_Js9ExbQFB3BAM

u/Kvahsir · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Even if it didn't work while in use, it'll at least still charge while I'm away. Which is one less thing to worry about and one less cable I have to deal with.

I guess I could always use a vinyl wrap like this to hide the LED's. Would probably look better than the glossy silver too.
