Re: Carbon Fiber Film

Also I am going to re-do my tails, as I did them with night shades a year and a half ago, and they are fading.

Re: Carbon Fiber Film

Looks good.

You could always get them professionally tinted if you wanted them to hold up better. Not sure exactly where you're located, but I know a place in St. Charles that does really good paint and tint work. Going to take some stuff of mine to him for some airbrush work.

I've been dealing with Berto. ekaz has used him for a bunch of paint work and everything I've seen has looked top notch.

Those are Di-Noc but the vinyl Murf got is a different kind and it looks great on the pics.

Re: Carbon Fiber Film

Murf, I know I might be asking a lot but could you take some more pics of the exterior trim wrap to see how it behaves in different light conditions. Maybe some closer ups too.

On the pics you posted it looks more like real carbon fiber in the sense that it is discrete and you need to get the right light / angle to see it would be CF.

I just took these this morning, so the Jeep is dirty from last night, but this in different light than the others I posted.





I have not seen the DiNoc in person, but you are correct in the fack that it is subtle, from 20 feet away you don't really see the Carbon Fiber pattern, only when you get close to the vehicle can you see it, I am very happy with it. As for ease of use, this is the first time I have ever used vinyl, and the close up pictures are of the very first piece I ever wrapped. I had to do 1 piece over, and that was because the primer the body shop sprayed on the front door pieces when he filled in the "Grand Cherokee" did not adhere to the chrome, and in repositioning the vinyl it pulled the primer off, so I wouldn't sat it was the fault of the Vinyl, or me That being said, I could make the corners look much better than in the pics now, with the little practice that I have had so far.

Re: Carbon Fiber Film

I am having a little adhesion problem on the rear step pad, does anyone have any suggestions? I cleaned it with alcohol, but have never used anything else. I am new to this, is there an adhesion promoter or something that would help? I really like the way the step looks wrapped, but it is not staying down around the rib towards the hatch. I may not have cleaned it well enough either.

3m Tape Primer 94 is the adhesion promoter you are looking for.

Re: Carbon Fiber Film

did wither one of you use this material?

http://www.duboisfabrics.com/product_p/cfu%20500.htm

I am absolutely sick of my faux-wood in the WK...I want to wrap the center console, shifter bezel and window faux wood. So I will need an adhesion promoter and form of glue? Please post proper glue/adh promoter pater numbers if know...thanks!

Also, about how long did this take you guys? This will be my first time, and I keep reading that it is fairly easy to work with...but do I want to get the stuff I posted above, neffy wrap or di-noc??? Seems like they all have their benefits, but would love to her why I should go with one or the other. Also, is the process reversible say when I go to sell my truck and need to take it off for the new owner? Will it come/clean right off? TIA

I would use the metrorestyling M500, (There is a link on the first page of this thread) or Di Noc. I found Metrorestyling while searching for the best price on DiNoc, and the sales guy there recommended the M500 over the DiNoc, and it actually cost less! that is what I have on my SRT, it goes on pretty easily. The stuff you linked is actual upholstery vinyl like if you wanted to recover your seats, and is too thick for what you want to do.
