Default 3M Carbon Fiber-look self-adhesive wrap!



This stuff is very, very cool. It looks like carbon fiber -- a LOT. But it's flexible, heat-able and stretchable so it can conform to all sorts of shapes. It has 3M adhesive already on it, so you don't have to use any messy spray-adhesive or anything. Just peel and stick. The adhesive has tiny air channels so you're unlikely to trap any air bubbles behind it.

We sell it in various sizes. You could use it to cover interior trim, down-tubes, handles, bezels, you name it. It has an expected lifespan of 12 years of interior use, four years of outdoor use. You could cover your roof!

Installation is similar to installing any self-adhesive vinyl. (You apply it dry, not with water.) Use a hair dryer or heat gun to get it to wrap around surfaces. If you're not comfortable with this kind of thing, your local vinyl or tint installer should have no problem with it.

I'm certainly no pro, but I managed to do this on my netbook:







I don't yet have pictures of it installed on a Subaru -- there are some out there, but it wouldn't be fair of me to use someone else's pics. Stay tuned for some accent-work on our own car.

Heat is used to install it. The warmer it is, the floppier the material gets, and once it gets to around 180 F the pattern starts to melt out of the material. So you don't want to use it anywhere that's going to be very hot. Car interior, okay, but even then you want to use adhesion promotor near any hot air vent. Engine bay away from direct heat, maybe okay. Engine bay near any kind of hot metal part, definitely not good.

Everybody has their own ideas of what's enough, but generally I'd just get a size large enough to cover the parts you want with about 2-4" of overlap at the edges. If this doesn't help, go out to your car with a tape measure and measure an imaginary box that's 4" larger than the pieces you're planning to wrap.

The stuff cuts easily with scissors or a knife, so you can use pieces you've cut out to cover smaller parts.
