    I would imagine you could laquer the vinyl. The bits ive got done on the interior is as far as im going. At first i was going to get the silver trim done on the dash and doors as well but i still like the silver.

    I like that

    Those door handles don't half get tatty as well. Is that vinyl did I read and is it easy to do?

    Yeah the stuff is just vinyl heated up to fit around whatever you are covering. Thats why i got the door handles done as mine were badly scratched.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi (VXR Styling)

    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 110k

    Default

    Is it a definate you could lacquer it?

    The free sample i got looks awesome, but if used on the outside for pillar trims i think it'll need a reflective surface to match the windows or the irmy style kit?

    Thanks for that, I only want to do the door handles to cover the scratches

    I have the SRi so the steering wheel is nice as is.

    I'm sure there are hundreds of sellers on ebay but is there one or a supplier you can recomend.

    I used www.carbonfibrewrap.com it was a little cheaper and was the real stuff! Think others have bought off eBay and all has been fine, so personal preference I think, just make sure it is 3m di noc and not cheap rubbish!
