    Engine : 1.8 16v ZXE18

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 109,000!

    Default whats the difference between carbon fibre film and 3M carbon fibre film

    i`m trying to find out the difference is, as i`m after the thinner stuff, after doin my dash with the carbon fibre film, the steering wheel has the thinner stuff, but the dash inserts have the thicker stuff and only just matches the steering wheel, first glance you don`t notice, but a second look and you can tell, which it bothers me as i`m one for things looking right

    i`m after the thinner stuff so i can do my interior door strips and the thinner stuff is easier to work with judging from when i did my steering wheel and ashtray, plus i could then re-do my dash strips so it matches

    When I get my leather redone I'll put my face-lift door cards back on. I'll redo all my trim with 3m as its the best stuff. And sample the thinner 3m first.

    MURDO its an irmscher wheel.
