    Default The Carbon Effect

    I am looking at adding some carbon fibre to my Vectra, to go along with the carbon I have put on the A pillars etc.

    I am looking at put carbon on...

    1. The chrome strip on the boot
    2. Interior door handles
    3. Bits on the centre console
    4. Engine bits (oil cap cover and expansion cap cover

    If you have done this already, so advice and pics would be grateful.

    Putting some on caps will not be a good idea due to heat it gives. Will just unloosen and curl up. I done my internal door handles and the strip inside front too. Looks way better but need to remove strip on door to do same to it. But got a chance with leather door cards which i'll do that once i got it inside! :-)
