    rolleyes Carbon fibre decal advice (Interior)

    I am considering applying a carbon fibre look to the wood fascia strip sections of the interior, however I was wondering -
    a) If there is a 'how to' or examples posted anywhere for this?
    b) Is it better to buy the self adhesive stuff or the stuff that you heat up, shape to the profile and then trim/cut.
    c) The best place to go to buy the kit

    Thanks!

    I'll hook out the camera tonight and take some photos of mine. I fitted a leather interior and the door trims didn't match the dash so i got the trims all carbon wrapped, at the same time i also got the bonnet done and the pillars done instead of getting an irmy kit cost me £300 to get all of it done, parts, labour the lot....
    Well happy with the end results
