3M Carbon Fibre Vinyl
 
Hey guys and gals.

I'm buying some carbon fibre vinyl for my Jeep for which I've managed to get a deal on. So, just wondering if there would be anyone else interested in buying some, so I can enquire with the seller, if he could do a deal for JG members.

I ordered a sample last week and I'm quite impressed with it. Pics below, apologies for them being phone pics, tried my best to show it off well;

This may only be worthwhile for UK/ European members, but I will see what he can come up with for all you guys in the US.

I've got prices etc on my work email, so I'll post them when I get there today.

I got some in my jeep and very much like it, especially how it feels and how it catches the light. Looks like yours is CA-421 which is the best IMO, the CA-420 is too light in my books. Not sure what you are looking at in terms of size and price for for a reference I get them from here, in germany and they ship to UK.

Initially the rear step cover and a few bits on the interior.:D I'd like to do the area where the wipers are, but may be a bit complex for my abilities!

There's a couple of different sizes, but I'm looking at 300 x 1220mm at the moment for 14.99. Checked the site you suggested and they work out at 16.99 plus postage. That said I think that's a better price than the guy I'm dealing with usually sells it for. Good info:thumbsup:

It looks thick. Am I right?

i would just think that may be hard to word with around edges

you are right Johnny. it takes work for complex curves and such. bit you use a heat gun/blow dryer to get around that. plus this is self stick. so that makes it a bit easier to work with.



and its Di-Noc made by 3M

go check out the 3m site see some of the stuff they use it for inside homes and businesses.

I used some heat on the sample I got and it's pretty flexable.

yeah, i got a 12x12 sample from 3M as well.

I am considering re-doing my ABCD's with this instead of the Neffy. Neffy isnt really having any issues except a few tiny places where looks lioke glue let goe on top of B pillars. very top last curve. and my A-pillar fill in of the handles have never been 100%, not neffy fault but it bugs me as not perfect. and i bought a set of A's real cheap.

sorry for messing up your thread..........
