    Default Best carbon fibre film for doing tailgate trim?

    Im really want to carbon wrap my silver tailgate trim so it will match the rest of the car(black) but im confused on what stuff to get.Ive done a bit of wrapping before but it just peeled off when the weather got hot.

    Im after some that will stick like s**t to a blanket and will be resistant to heat and washing.

    Thank

    I've used the cheap stuff loads & it's epic once you learn how to use it. Tried 3M when I was wrapping for other people & it was awful, not sticky, can't work with it as its thick so doesn't like to be stretched & folded round edges.
