    Default Carbon wrapping mirror covers.

    Is it relatively easy?

    Would I need an A4 size sheet for each cover?

    Thanks

    It's easy enough mate just apply plenty of heat.

    A hair dryer does the job great.

    A4 sheet be fine.

    I've tried it in the past and then ended up giving up as I made a right **** up of it, I think I had some cheap crap material though which probably didn't help. Anyone got any pics of their that they've done?

    Heat makes it pliable, and a very sharp craft knife or scalpel usually does the trick FLOB.

    Gonna think about this, don't like the mirror arm silver if do it, looks odd on pics I've see (no offense)... I've got my silver lightening cover so was gonna have a play, might just put the CC ones on, store the irmy's until I decide on wheel colour....
