    Default Pillar Trims - what size vinyl

    What did you use - Pics ... I fancy gloss black or "possibly" carbon fibre?!?

    Think black might look a little better to be honest and i wont have to waste carbon firbre getting the pattern all the same way up (yes, i have OCD's )

    I also have the option to just paint them and the mirror bases gloss black for free too...

    So which would you do, and how much vinyl would you need?

    1 or 2 Sunstrips?!? Also seen 450mm x 1000mm or 610 x 1000 sheets... More?!?

    Cheers, lee

    I've bought 2m of the 610mm stuff... looks to be way more than enough to do the job.

    I got CF, but now you've mentioned gloss black I'm not so sure... never thought of that.

    I just figured you can be less picky if the C/F isn't all chequered in the same direction

    Yes, worried about that too... old sunstrips show up wiper marks after a week... If its cheap stuff i cant see it hiding marks as well as CF...

    But painting would?!?

    Thanks mate.I just cut them a bit oversize stuck them on and used a stanley blade to trim them down. Also used a hairdryer just to bond them better to the pillar and ain't had any problems since.
