Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

Did I miss the how to for the steering wheel somewhere? From the sounds of it, you didn't wrap it. So, did you just get the top piece from the dealer and what did it run? Thanks.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

Ah. You're right. It says so in his first post . I wonder what a new Limited steering wheel runs and how involved the swap was? Heated as well, I assume (don't know if thats standard option on a Ltd).

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

That looks sofa king good. Great job. You've actually completely changed my perception of carbon fiber trim (real and fake). That texture just looks so good on the curves of the pieces and contrasts the rest of the interior just right.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

^ Thanks Chris.

Here is my final update on the trim...

I accidentally scratched a piece of rear trim loading my hockey sticks (Ironically made out of real CF ) into the back so I decided to re-wrap it all again with the chrome showing. Cheers to Hemidog for the chrome idea.

Now that I've had lots of practice and received some tips from a local installer it is 100% perfect - no crows feet, tears, scratches or otherwise. Could not be happier and I've got a bit of OCD when it comes to the Jeep. I should also mention that other than me hacking the door panel this stuff has held up real well and looks as good as it did the day it was installed.

Once again the pics don't do it full justice. The chrome adds just enough character to make it look a little more high-end IMO and ties in with the chrome around the centre console.

Looks good!

Do your door panels and the trim feel tight and like the day you got it or have some loosened or not fit as tight as they once did? I'm considering going with a dark black wood or CF trim with my blk/saddle but really don't like the idea of tearing apart the panels.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

Glad I was too lazy to do this last Fall, cause it's now On like Donkey Kong with the chrome strip showing.

Note a few of the SRT8 guys have had their CF trim delaminate in hotter climates, so another win for this mod.

Nice work as always 604.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

Has anyone here seen the DiNoc version in person? It looks to come in both a flat and gloss version and according to the description and some of the reviews, it is more durable then scotchprint 1080 (what 604 installed).

Also, anyone here do this with the saddle/blk interior...looking for some pics if so. Not sure if the blk CF will flow well with the black and saddle doors. I may order a small sample to test it out.

I did have to replace a couple of the clips that broke ($1 ea) but otherwise is good as new and the trim pieces themselves are held on by screws so no worries there. Just remember that once the door panel is snapped back on and seemingly fit in place, go around the perimeter of the panel giving it hard smacks with the palm of your hand and you will hear a couple of the pins clip in just a little tighter then it sill feel super solid again.

Thanks Moose - one other thing I should mention is that on the long centre dash pieces you cannot remove the chome bit from the trim as you would on the door pieces. I ended up wrapping the whole face of the part and then ran a very sharp tiny exacto knife down the seam between the chrome and the old wood trim. Then just peel away the leftover piece and use your thumb to make sure the wrap is pressed back down along the edge you cut.

I did see the DiNoc but thought that scotchprint looked and felt more realistic (the tiny vinyl strips appear to actually be weaved like real CF) and since its an interior piece that does not see much abuse it should still last 5+ years no problem.
