I saw someone on the form did the grill with 3M warp. I was looking at amazon to buy some vinyl to wrap my grill and mirror maybe. If you look at customer photos, one of the customer has his Infiniti interior wrapped.

I did mine a few months ago. Made a huge difference. I really like it. I only have a few low quality cell pics with me at the moment but I can get some higher res ones shortly. I would definitely recommend it. I get comments on it all the time. The 3M CF dinoc is a bit thicker and a bit harder to handle standard non-textured vinyl. So getting it to wrap around the edges was a bit tricky, but time and patients pay off. I took each piece off and wraped as much vinyl around the back of each piece as I could. I used a hair dryer to make it more playable and use lot of relief cuts when wrapping corners and holes for buttons etc...

If done right, you shouldn't have any pealing issues. Just need to make sure that the vinyl is stuck well and that there are enough relief cuts around curves so that over time the vinyl will not shrink and cause issues. I have a few buttons and areas around the volume **** that are staring to look stretched as if I didn't place enough relief cuts around the curve. Still very happy with it and I only notice it because I know it's there. I'll redo it someday when I have more experience using the material.

hmmm...can you tell me what size you bought the vinyl warp? I know on amazon, 3M Scotchprint 1080 Carbon Fiber Vinyl Flex Wrap Black CF12 60"x12"is $23.99. I also wanted to do my mirrors. I wanted your input, see it it would look good?

I used the 3M DI-NOC and I got it from here . I don't know if the scotchprint is the same as the di-noc though. It might be, I'm just not sure.

I think I bought the 12x48 at the time just to try it. If your trying to figure out how much you need, it would be good to measure the parts you want to cover. I didn't buy enough and only got the front console and trim covered. I need to order more and do the door trims.

The side mirrors I think would look good. I can't imagine stretching this stuff around that curve though. Might be tough. There are a few companies that make Real carbon fiber overlays for the mirrors if you like the carbon fiber look. autokitsx.com has some. You can also find them on

Should be a simple install, especially if you've worked w/ vinyl before. A 12x60 sheet will be plenty including mirrors if you don't mess anything up, lol. Mirrors aren't as easy as they look. It's best to wrap the mirror covers then remove them so you can tuck the edges under the cover edge. If you leave the edges exposed they'll wrinkle on you
No need to remove the door panels, just apply the vinyl to the trim pieces and tuck the edges under the trim piece then heat them and press under the edge while heating to seal the vinyl. The only pieces you need to remove are the short trim piece to the left of the driver and the one along the glove box and the center stack. Should take a couple hours..

Well, if you do, it would look nice. You should do all the door pulls and trim for that better look. You will fall in love with your car all over again.

From sources that I've read, vinyl does have a lifespan of around 1-6 years. I'm sure it depends on the quality of the vinyl. However, the vinyls that I've used have not caused any damage at all. I had to remove it and re wrap it a few times before I got used to how to handle it and it caused no damage. The 3M di-noc is actually made to be reusable. When you peal it off, it leaves no residue. You can stretch, crumble it up into a ball and crease it, then just take a hair drier to it and it smooths back out ready to use again.

^Thanks! It really changes the feel of the interior.

Some more recent pics with more pieces wrapped.

you think any shops or people do this kind of work in Pittsburgh or Columbus? I have a hard time seeing myself doing anything that even slightly resembles sev7ntang0's work
