    Default Carbon Wrapped Bonnet

    Well it's taken me a couple of days to sort the pics out but finally, here they are.

    After seeing a thread on here I took a trip round the M25 to Godstone to see Bryan and his mate at Drive & Shine, they carbon wrapped my bonnet, re trimmed my door pillars and covered the wooden trim from my recent leather interior install (see other thread)

    Well happy with the result

    Feedback greatfully received (as long as it's positive)

    Sorry to say, not a fan of that, it makes the bonnet look matt black to me. Its a Huge surface area and something needs to break that up. As long as your happy thats all that counts fella

    heres a couple of pics of the door trim (i don't know where the big smudge came from as it's not on the door)

    i thought about the roof but i thought that it would be too much

    I have a set of black sri headlights in the shed waiting to go on when i get the chance (hopefully within the next couple of weeks)

    Unfortunatley the whole job wasn't cheap at just shy of £300 all in but then i was quoted £350 from somewhere else just for the wrap for the bonnet and that didn't include fitting

    I'm still tempted to ring them about doing my roof, although might just stick with black for that.....hmm choices choices lol

    Door trims look smart though, only downside to carbon fibre on a dark car is its harder to notice it.

    I don't mind it being harder to notice, the wood trim on the leather door cards stuck out like a sore thumb so i had to do something, plus they didn't match the dash.
    I don't mind it not standing out on the bonnet as if it did i think it would be too boy racer.

    The only thing i'll say is have a plan to occupy your time. i dragged the missus with me and Redhill is the closet sign of civilisation to where the work shop is. We were there 5 hours, my god it dragged, it seemed like forever. There is only so many times you can walk around the same shops.
    Mind you they have a really nice old church that we had a look around, although that only took up 1/2 hour. Only another 4 1/2 to go..
