Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

The door trim and the dash on my limited Is black underneath also so the blue carbon 9 piece kit I got looks good ..would look better even if I had gotten the black cf

You'll like it Skunk'd

No need to worry about the edges that are slightly exposed

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

I had a friend of mine in my Jeep today and he's not a big car guy...and even he kind of picked me apart over the Overlay kit...he could see the exposed edges and he thought it wasn't a very "finished " look...

I told him I was going to paint the edges but even he thought it wouldn't ever look perfect ...he knows How picky I am ...so now I'm looking into getting the interior completely covered in real carbon.

My plan is to pick up all the parts new and then just send them out to be coated...looks like it will cost about 2K but it'll be a much better look

It will definitely looks nice! Man I thought I was bad lol you must have some money to burning a hole in your pocket with all the mods you've done, undone, and redone again lol 😁

Part of the game of getting things right though! I still think the door trim and dash portion look good can't wait to get mine on shipping seems to take about 2 weeks from when you order the kit

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

Thanks man!

yeah...lots of experimenting for sure...nothing is ever permanent...I think my setup looks pretty good in person but everyone has an opinion

The door kit you got coming looks pretty good..especially since the parts underneath are black..so it doesn't look odd if it doesn't cover every bit...it s just the gold underneath that looks weird...if I could do it over again I would disassemble this and paint it black before applying the overlay kit

would Look a million times better

I did order the Trufiber carbon mirror covers and the trufiber rear carbon step yesterday so that's my next immediate project ...then I'll be on to the SRT body package conversion

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

I painted all the exposed gold parts today and it looks a million times better

I'm still pursuing having everything wrapped in real carbon fiber but this will do for now

It doesn't bother me now

Re: Carbon overlay interior trim kit -

I went to the auto store and picked up a can of spray plastic bumper paint in matte black
I then went to the art store and bought a pack of really good quality brushes

I sprayed the paint into a small container and used the various brushes to touch up the exposed gold

It took a couple of coats and about 30 minutes but it looks a lot better now

I'll snap some pics tomorrow ..night and day difference

I like the carbon fiber much better, but I guess I got lucky that my Altitude came with silver trim instead of the champagne!

Which is why I pulled it out. Wasn't satisfied with the fit and the finish started to crack
