Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

Yeah....like I said it's ok...but not perfect...I guess you could paint the edges to give it a lot more "finished" look...but i really don't want to start boogering up the interior with paint on the panels...the good thing is that you can still remove this stuff if you get sick of the look...Overall though I think it's still better than the stock color...

I think it looks cool if you look straight at it. I really don't like that it does not fit perfectly over the existing trim. That would really drive me nuts.

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

I had the same kit in my 08, looks good and all but I wasn't 100% satisfied on fit. you nailed it with how it don't completely cover the part its supposed to cover. had my kit in over 3 years before I ripped it out. the finish started to deteriorate. the gel coat started getting some veiny looking blemishes in it

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

yeah...you really need to train yourself to look at the front only...lol

I'm guessing that in a week or 2 I'm going to be forced to paint the edges black.,..even though I don't want to...but I'm guessing that if I paint the edges up it will definitely have a much more finished look. and you won't notice that it's an overlay...at least as much

it looks better at night though

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

its just the Gold underneath that drives me nuts..the upper screen area in the middle is already black so it's not bad...but the Vents and lower Center console and outer center console areas are gold...so they def need some black paint to really finish the look

well...now that you guys are giving me feedback it looks like I really need to try painting the edges black....I may do that this weekend ...I'll let you know how it works

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

I had a similar kit on a car years ago and wouldn't buy it again.
If carbon fiber was my thing id go with the 3M Di-noc. It really gives you the OEM+ finish.

This person wrapped their dash belt trim in it.



Here is a black brushed look in vinyl.

Really like the look at that... need to practice some vinyl wrapping skills.

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

I have some really nice carbon vinyl but I was too lazy and definitely not skilled enough to apply it properly

I looked into having everything carbon wrapped (real cf)and it cost a fortune and is a lot of work to tear apart
But I guess you get what you pay for
If I know someone that could tear everything apart and wrap it nicely I'd definitely go that route

This overlay is not oem quality for sure

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

That's why I bought just the door and dash trim 9 piece kit. I wish I could order it piece meal and do the ones that make sense. On altitudes our door trims are black so it should come out nice. I'll post pics up asap not sure how long they take to ship
