    If you mean proper carbon wrapping with carbon fibre mat and resin, it is not the easiest thing in the world to get right. Better to pay a pro unless you are confident.

    If you mix the resin slightly wrong it won't set clear and the timings need to be pretty perfect too for the extra layers etc......

    If you do try it I would say to try something flat and small first. Perhaps the boot strip as it is flat with few curves. I tried my V-grill and never again!!!

    If you mean the vinyl film then I think its a lot easier but personally I think it looks a bit cheap as it is normally used to cover up worn out trim....

    My wrap should be here on Monday and I'm not in college then so will probably get the boot strip done. Will tell you at the meet how it goes. Think the front grill would look really nice in carbon.
