Carbon fiber cowl

So, since I ordered a big ol' piece of Di-Noc, I had a long piece left over and decided to do the cowl on the dash. I cut out the grates for the defogger, and popped out the speaker grilles for starters. I sanded down the edges, sprayed the whole thing down with some Simple Green, and scrubbed the hell out of it. After drying, I wiped it down really well with alcohol and got to wrappin'. The mesh is gutter guard from Home Depot that I cut to fit. The speaker grills were "domed" out a little bit to make room for the tweeters.

Re: Carbon fiber cowl

Now I kinda want to so something with those "trayed" areas on the top of the dash.

Re: Carbon fiber cowl

The more of the interior you cover with CF means less of that tan interior which is not my thing. I like it.

Re: Carbon fiber cowl

I'd much rather have a grey or black interior too....but you take what you can get. When I was shopping for this, the prior owner had it listed as "graphite", so I thought it would have the color scheme I wanted. I settled on the color because it had EVERYTHING else I was looking for. Can't win'em all. The exterior color grew on my quickly. The inside...meh.
