Has anyone tried to do a fixed back race seat with di-noc?

Picking up some used Bride zetas and the backs are multi coloured, di-noc should look good but I'm not sure it could be made to stick to the complex shape, I've never used the stuff before.

Thoughts from the experts? otherwise I'll just paint em

^ No you should just give me the brides k thanks. Just use a heat gun and take your time and maybe some spray adhesive and it would look sick. If you wanted to get fancy with it cut the di noc and put it on the flat parts and paint the raised parts.

Has anyone had success with a shape like this, its a fair waste of cash if it delaminates.

This thread was overdue to show up , i like how everyone is down with the di-noc . Now i just want to see them do some carbon-kevlar style dinoc and i would wrap my roof in that. my Droid X protective cover has some sort of di-noc style wrap on it i bought it like that though.

I'm going to do my side mirrors in this stuff sometime in the next few days. I'll post pics up when I'm done so everyone can see.

Like this?

Considering they do entire cars in this stuff, I think it will work quite well with complex shapes...of course contact cement or some sort of adhesive would help.

Im not saying YOU would or wouldnt, I am saying that you would likely be surprised when you saw it in person.

Not overdone is the key too. Too much and=rice

The stuff posted in this thread has a "dry" look to it. It's not very shiny. I personally like the dry look a lot better.

By definition, if someone is using a sticker/decal/whatever that looks like some other product, be it carbon fiber, aluminum, kevlar, strawberry jelly, etc.; then it is rice. I'm not arguing whether or not it looks "good". beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I'm just saying that if you are faking the funk... it's rice. It's no different than installing a PVC plastic rollcage or those Brembo brake caliper covers or Chinese eBay knock-off parts.

But I really didn't post that silly picture to start a serious debate as to what is or is not rice... I just felt like trolling.

I say, if you like how it looks, DO IT. Who really cares if it's fake? Why replace something, or waste money buying something new when you can make it look nice and be happy with it?

By the way, that faux - carbon covered bride seat is awesome looking!!!

I ended up painting them satin black, after reading through lots of threads on various forums came to the conclusion that the shape of my seats was too complex for the di-noc to stay stuck down, they came up nice anyway, I'm happy.

For those of you who have done a dash wrap, did you use the adhesion primer/promoter (such as 3M 94)? Is it recommended or overkill?

I'd recommend the adhesion promoter for the 06+ interiors as they have more complicated shapes then 05- interiors. It's mainly in two spots where if you don't use it, even with heat it wants to lift (at least mine did anyway).

I also did the door controls and surrounds around the door handles.

This is on an 06.
