Carbon fiber wrap interior wood

New to the forum.... Scored a spare set of the complete wood trim for my car so I decided to wrap it up in glossy carbon fiber.

Definitely time consuming but I am loving the outcome, will post pics once installed.

I decided to do this because I am still waiting for MB to call me to replace the faded wood in my car.

I did exactly the same and they look great. It's night and day compared to the wood finish. Also, did you do the 4 doors?

That looks great.

Has anyone done this with the trims installed on the dash?

From where did you get the carbon fiber panels? Did you order from MB or aftermarket?

Very nicely done. How much did you end up spending on materials?

All I can say it is wow - that looks like it came that way. Since vinyl wrapping is new to me, let me ask how longs does it last/how durable is it? How hard is i to change back or change to a different wrap?

It is very durable it's meant to be on the exterior or interior of the vehicle. It's a few time consuming task. All 4 door panels need to be removed in order to do it right.

I'm not really a fan of carbon fiber, but I must commend you on such a nice job you did!

Looks pretty good for just vinyl. Can't beat the price!

+ on what brand you went with.

I usually end up using 3m 1080. But it lacks the shine that yours seems to have.

I normally get most of the materials from this site:
https://www.metrorestyling.com/

They have a ton of different options and their shipping is super fast. (I'm not affiliated at all with them.)
