got carbon fibre?
 
just ordered my carbon fiber from Carbonfibergear.com, and iJDMtoy.com

I thought I'd give you a little comparison between the two.

The carbon fibre I got is a vinyl wrapping.. TJX(Tony) has used it along with some other guys on here that I can't remeber off the top of my head.

The carbon fiber I got was a sample size of the "Graphite/grey". When touching it it feels very real, very shiny, you can feel the texture differences more vividly, and it looks very nice.

The other carbon fiber I got from iJDMtoy.com is cheaper(I got 24" x 48" for less than $20 and that's with shipping[used a little discount code too])

I got the black dull one and it's not as shiny at all compared to the other carbon fiber. It also feels more plastic-like than the other one, but you can feel and see the difference.

I got the sample size just to cover up my phone and give it some more jazz, but I got the bigger peice because I'm going to be wrapping my interior peices(overhead console, overhead doorhandles, sunblocking holding things, along with the silver trim, and maybe parts from the door.. not sure yet)

Here are some pictures of the iJDMtoy.com carbon fiber;

This stuff holds up extremely well on the exterior too by the way...I did my rear glass hinges, handle, etc. Love this stuff...

It's not carbon fiber, it's a sticker that looks like carbon fiber!

Yeah.. I would advise everyone to get the Carbonfibergear.com Carbon Fiber vinyl film, it's so much more worth it.. plus its actually got 3M behind it, and its strong.

The cheap stuff I got, is okay for the price I paid but it's lackluster in its appeal, and hard to work with.. compared to my sample size from Carbonfibergear.com..

I'll be uploading some pictures of my interior when I re-do it again with my extra Carbonfiber.. I messed up a wittle :-P
