    Default Carbon fibre boot strip?

    Ive got a spare boot strip that i got from the scrappy and was going to spray is black but its seems alot of hassel and im rubbish with a spray can.

    sooooooooooo

    I was thinking about getting it carbon wrapped instead,whats your thoughts and what is it likely to cost if i had it done professionaly?

    Cheers

    an easy DIY get a piece of ebay,just make sure its long enough.Very simple to do and before long you will get the bug and do the whole car.I started on the boot strip and have now done all the window chrome,window pillars and even my snowflake centre caps.

    To be honest the trickiest part for me was removing the strip.

    Actually carbon wrapping it was a doddle.

    Should be able to get it off ebay mate.

    Search for 3M di-noc carbon. Got mine off there and had no problems what so ever. A couple of years of good old British weather and it's still stuck fast.
