Both. I have a shop @ home, so I guess yes? LOL you can do the work @ home, just need a few tools; time and patience are the greatest virtues when doing this upgrade. Each piece takes 45min - 1 hr, so you're looking @ 6 + hrs to finish job. We can hook-up and you can see the finished job first-hand if your interested. Finished the project by upgrading my shift knob to Black Leather. Car looks awesome. The woodgrain got boring and didn't suit new look of car......

I believe he wraps the existing trim in real C/F.
BTW, I still would like you to do some interior trim pieces for me. Cheers.

I wrap the existing trim in Carbon Fiber.. It's not the strechy carbon fiber "mactac" pattern alot of aftermarket guys are peddling.... I used a real Carbon Fiber waeve embedded in a UV resistant coating to give it a textured, yet gloss look. Some folks like the dry weave, I prefer the gloss look. It's a 0.4mm sheet with 3M automotive adhesive that I heat and wrap to each piece. Didn't do it to sell the product, just did my research and found this to be the best I could find short of using a carbon fiber sheet and the mess associated with that didn't interest me. I love the look and the guys that have seen it all want to do it to their cars. I went with the darker look (black interior), but the guys I get the sheets from have silver carbon fiber sheets too..... It's great for interiors and exterior pieces with moderate curves or surfaces.... got more pics if interested.....

Just checked out their site and it appears they only have the same version as mine now. Will email them and find out if they still have the silver....
