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.
Thanks for answering my questions.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

Just saw this thread. This is the #1 reason I purchased a Laredo X HEMI instead of a Limited. The ugly ass wood trim and steering wheel. I couldn't stand the light colored wood. Plus, then we jumped in a Limited for a test drive and my wife started clicking her fingernails on the wood wheel. Then I started to do it. Black trim and leather wrapped wheel for this guy. That CF looks pretty sick though!

agree which is why I swapped out an All black limited wheel in my overland and I may wrap the wood trim in either the CF or Black marble. not sure if the CF will look that great paired with the Saddle/blk interior. Black marble or black zebra wood wrap may be a better option.

has anyone seen the 3M black marble or Black zebra wood wrap in person?

Another thing you could do if you want a darker wood option is to refinish the wood trim. You can sand it down and restain it another color...

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

^ I would strongly recommend against this as the veneer they use for the wood is so thin you would more than likely screw it up while attempting to sand.

A light scuff would be fine.

Re: DIY: Interior Beltline Trim Removal / Wrap

I love this write up, my only thing would have been leaving the chrome strip that runs under the wood visible. That way it would look a lot more factory style.
But in all this is a great thing to customized your interior, it gives you car a new look.
I did this with my Lexus Is 350 before I sold it.
Thanks
