Thanks, yea it definitely took some patience. Prob took me 4-5 hours all around, but I took my time with a lot of the wrapping.

If your going to do this, you'll have to have the balls to to pull hard enough to snap some of the plastic pieces off the dash. A few times I thought I was going to break the plastic.

For the chrome, after I covered the whole piece, I just ran an exacto knife in the seem where the chrome meets the wood and peeled it back.

I wanted to keep the chrome showing though to get more of the stock look.

All around I'm happy I did it and think it turned out better than expected.

Re: Wrapped my stock wood trim in carbon fiber

Ran across this post I agree 100% the plastic wood looks cheap and the CF really accents the Interior

Re: Wrapped my stock wood trim in carbon fiber

anyone do this for the center console? the hideous cheap looking silver plastic that surrounds the shifter and cup holders on the 2014 model needs this upgrade!

I like it! Good job.

Re: Wrapped my stock wood trim in carbon fiber

You did a GREAT job wrapping your interior. Looks fantastic. People pay good $$$ for carbon fiber work. I'm happy with the brown factory interior in my '14 Summit, but maybe this is a good business opportunity. If I had black interior, I'd pay a few hundred to do a trim swap with someone who could wrap these pieces in carbon fiber....just a thought. Again, great work.
