    Default carbon wrap v grill

    Has anyone tried carbon wrapping the chrome bit on their standard grill? I'm thinking of giving it a go and was after a few pointers...

    I personally found it impossible to do it in one piece.i did the whole thing minus the area around the emblem and then did that area separately ensuring the pattern matches up.very difficult to see the join unless know where to look.even with plenty of heat found the curves too complex for one piece.

    Ive just tried mine with a spare of carbon and even tho ive wrapped things before the tight angles and edges are difficult its not perfect but i tried in it in one but ill now take off the bottom half and replace it so id try it half and half just make sure you have a hot air gun or hair dryer handy to help, if you need some black carbon wrap to give it a go let me know.
