Thanks; a lot of effort and re-learning went into that....

Needed to let them harden overnight and they're going in tomorrow. Will post installed pics tomorrow night. Going to start wrapping my current set as well and have that ready for the weekend.

For that application, I would get a CF molded part or hate to say it cause it looks so bad, CF vinyl wrap because it's SO thin.....

If you're serious as you say, I will look into it and see if it's sometime I think can be done PROPERLY using the wrapping. What specific model is it?

I gotta say, the E46 is one of the very few cars that actually looks good with carbon fibre wrapped trim pieces. It looks amazing.

Not usually a fan of CF, but it turned out really nice. You did an amazing job!

Thanks to everyone for their encouragement. The wife was equally impressed @ how well it turned out; she was NOT a fan of the CF stuff I'd previously used to wrap with (embedded CF cloth). She loves the new look!!

Will try and post DIY over next few days!

Now got a second set to wrap.... and a few other pieces to finish.

Good job. Hope it is UV stabilized so it doesn't start yellowing.

Ya, the epoxy is specifically intended for this use. The clear coat also provides some UV protection. Same epoxy used commercially.

Going to wrap my old set starting tomorrow if anyone is interested.....

Going to be wrapping tomorrow (Sat) and had a few suggestions to wrap with weave going opposite direction. Will wrap that way tomorrow and see how they look.... should look pretty cool. Will just have to find a home 1 of the sets next week..... Also, anyone interested in a factory silver cube CF trim set from a ZHP? Have access to one....
