Re: New Carbon Interior Upgrade and new Momo Shift Knob!! Pics

This is cool looking. Don't mind the guys comments. If it yellows just polish it well and it will be fine. Keep your car out of sun and take a good care of it.

If it yellows, I'll take it off, no big deal at all.

I also have to take the comments from Black Ops with a grain of salt, since he sells real carbon fiber stuff himself.

Also, all my windows have UV protective tint (windshield as well) so I'm thinking that should negate most of the yellowing issues for years to come. I'm actually more concerned about ambient heat causing it come unstuck than anything else.

Just trying to help ya out buddy. I don't have any interior carbon coming and don't plan on doing any ever.

See the issues the OEM's are having with just the heat inside and stuff falling off. I have limo tint on my 12 and a piece fell off already. Temps have a lot to do with it same as this stuff just remember what we said about getting it off if it yellows I've seen it first hand PIA. The effects of real carbon like you said it was and resin have a strange effect when heated just throwing my two cents in since I work with CF every day.

Take that off now before it completely sets and wont come off. That is going to yellow very quickly and will damage the parts if you try to remove it when it has been on for awhile

Re: New Carbon Interior Upgrade and new Momo Shift Knob!! Pics

So do you have to re-thread the shifter pole or cut a clip notch in it to shorten it?

I think the dash and console looks great, but I would listen to these guys that have been there and done that and at least keep an eye on it for signs of it discoloring.

Re: New Carbon Interior Upgrade and new Momo Shift Knob!! Pics

It's like everything else. Depends on who makes it and the quality of the materials. I figure it's kinda like what's on there from the factory.

If it starts to yellow I'll pull it off.

As far as the shift knob, they dont use threads, its just slides on and locks into place using three set screws. Its a simple dremmel Tool with cutting wheel to hack off about 1" and install the new knob.

Re: New Carbon Interior Upgrade and new Momo Shift Knob!! Pics

It looks nice atm. If it fails down the road you can allways replace the parts. I like the knob too. Where in CA are ya? I'm in Redding.

Yep True on the quality.

Let me explain what it is. This stuff has softer Resin than what the factory used. What the Jeep Plant did was laminate the OEM plastic parts with real carbon and then use a resin or possibly a gel coat hence the cloudy appearance it has (The OEM Stuff). The OEM parts fall off because the resin or Lamination was wrong what we call de-lamination. Few Reasons this happens another thread LOL.

This stuff is a lot softer and has almost like a flex resin almost like DuraFlex bumpers but clear so it all comes down to the type of resin that is laid over the real Carbon. It could last a while could yellow in no time at all it will yellow that's a fact it is just a matter of how long it takes.

Their is no doubt I love the look of it!! This stuff looks hot and personally only commented in the first place because I figured someone should know what will happen (The OP). I priced the OEM Plastic and it's a lot of money upwards of almost 1k or more depending what dealer quotes you to replace it all if one decides they want to ditch the carbon look. I'm pretty sure once it is stuck on their good it will pull all the cheap silver paint off the OEM plastic and they will have no choice other than having to replace it all the OEM plastic with new stuff.

What you say makes total sense. I expect that in a few years it will at the very least dull or get cloudy, and yes it will probably yellow at some point. I'll just have to pull the pieces and refinish them. I would probably have them stripped and painted black at that point.

Like what you've done either way, the center console and shifter are awesome.
And by the way.... Nice ride!
