Default dry carbon dash and downtubes.

Here's a DIY job from a first-timer over on the NAM board.
Most of you guys know I install this stuff for a living in the tri-state area... so its always cool to see someone do it themselves with material you ship them.

Sweet...............Which color / pattern is this application called ?

How much material / cost is required to do the dash/down tubes and maybe the door grabs ?

Does this MINI have a glove box door delete or something ? L@@ks different....I like it.

you know, I'm not really sure. The owner is from NM, so it is a US car.

pretty much. just as easy to use, much more pleasing to my eye at least. i bought so much, i'm an installer of the product now, and i have a website retailing it. haha. i'm one of 2 or 3.

check out this youtube video showing how easy it is to use this stuff.

I was thinking the same thing. I cant wait till this fad passes... and people stop calling it "dry carbon wrap" I mean for god sake it's a vinyl sticker imprinted with marks to emulate carbon. Not dry carbon.

that name isn't catch enough, lol.

i'm down for whoever doesn't like it. everyone has their tastes.

Personally, I just wanted to cover up my shiny ass dashboard with something that would break up reflections at night.

I've worked in the "vinyl business" for 6+ years now. For 6+ years, i've been looking for a good carbon fiber vinyl. this is finally it. it's expensive, and a bitch to get, but its worth it- compared to the other crap out there they call carbon fiber.

It's the usual MINI fad. Everyone just wants something that's cheap and easy to do I guess
