Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

I got the vinyl locally from a guy selling it on craigslist. He came out and showed me a few different samples but the 3M stood out as the best looking of the bunch. I purchased 1 sq yrd of it and it was easily enough to do the trim plus it leaves you with enough to re-wrap a few pieces if necessary. It helps to layout the parts in advance and make sure you have the weave angled the right way.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

Thanks. For anyone else looking, I found it on amazon for $24 for a 60''x12'' piece. I will start with one piece and see how much that will cover for me.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

That 12" size may not work because of the need to change weave direction. One side will be fine, but the other side of the dash you normally put the weave the opposite direction which equates to turning the material 90 degrees then wrapping.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

I have an 07 though, so the door pieces are only the size of the switches, so I dont think I will have that issue. The biggest pieces I have are the shifter trim, radio surround (it is not wood grain, but plain black) and the area where the hvac controls are.

The way I am thinking is, if I had the vinyl laid out long ways (with the 60'' going vertically), I could set each piece for the door (I would say they are maybe 2'' wide) next to each other and still have plenty of room. Then the weave would be going in the same direction for both pieces. Then, for the shifter area, hvac and radio bezel, I should be able to set them in a line going down the length of the vinyl since it is 60'' long.

Well, that is my plan to try and get it all to work. I have ideas on wrapping other things, like the trim around the trailer hitch since it is fading to grey, but I don't know when I will get around to the other pieces and I don't want to get two 12''x60'' and then only end up using one and be stuck with the other.

Is my idea for laying out the pieces I have the correct way to do it?

Just remember that to make the lines go the oppostite way you need to turn the fabric 90 degrees (half turn) and not a full turn. So if you lay the first pieces vertically the one that require opposite lines need to be laying horizontally.

Thanks, I think I'm going to leave it as-is at least for now. I'm a big fan of understated mods that look like they could have been factory so I don't want to mess that up by going too crazy. I also want to see how well the vinyl holds up. So far so good but my wife's ring did scuff the finish a bit on one piece. Thankfully I can remove and re-wap any of the individual pieces within about 20 min now so I'm not too worried about it.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

I believe the di-noc is very similar but the scotchprint is the newer and slightly more realistic looking of the two. Both are suitable for either interior or exterior and have the same wear characteristics. Not too sure about the other two you mentioned.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

From my research on the two...Scotchprint was actually designed because the di-noc was not designed for automotive use. The di-noc is thicker and harder to handle. Since the Scotchprint is thinner, it is easier to wrap pieces with curves and angles and keep the creases and wrinkles out.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

Is that the heated steering wheel from a limited? How did you put that in and where did you get the wheel?

Nice work. Where did you order the wrap from?
