Back in the day, at the height of the Import Tuner craze(NOOOOOSSSS!-lol), I remember a guy with a Honda Civic who had redone his dash in cf. He then got the bright idea to use the cf fabric, minus the resin of course, to reupholster his seats. He covered both fronts and the rear, as well as the arm rests and I think even the door skins, headliner, and sun visors. Little did he know, the stuff throws off fibers that itch like fiberglass! The last part of his interview he admitted it was difficult to drive the car for long without severe discomfort, but he kept it as is for the look.

Now, I like what you did here. Looks sweet and unique!

Re: Neffy warp armrest

Nice work but you really need to get some better pics up there for us to see. What glue did you use ?

Re: Neffy warp armrest

Yeah, I was going to ask how it feels?

CF is not my thing (unless it's genuinely done for weight), but looks nice on there!

Re: Neffy warp armrest

so being your first time using it...how hard was it? I want to do all of my faux wood, and now armrest and a couple other interior trim pieces...prolly pillars. I do not want something that looks bad, and I want it to last...so it this realistically something I can do myself or is it best to get someone to do it? Are you happy with the outcome of your work? please post any tips or tricks you could for a first-timer...is it expensive stuff?

Re: Neffy warp armrest

I know i wasnt the first to do CF interior i didnt mean that i MEANT FIRST TO DO A CF ARMREST WRAP ON A JEEP...lol yeah i would go to overboard with it just some parts not the whole thing

Yes I do have to get better pics i know the last pic is all blurry i only have my cell fone to take pics i will get some tomarrow in the day

It feels like leather to be honest it looks like real CF and with the L.E.D in the interior looks more sexy lol

Lol not itchy but smooth

Re: Neffy warp armrest

I wasn't coming down on you about being or not being the first bro. This simply reminded me about that idiot with the Civic. I think your design idea with the pillars and such is excellent. I'd like to see more.
