Holy crap! Advice to all- do not accidently not buy Di-noc instead of 1080.
Bought thru amazon and misread it.
1080 has a lot more flex and is stickier for SURE!
So I wrapped the face of my TV with it and meh.
The dinoc weave looks like crap compared to the racecar 1080

^ ^ ^ Disagree!

People have been using 3M DiNoc for ages and it's fine (in fact I'd wager probably pages 1 thru 16 or so of this thread are all examples of DiNoc –*1080 is a more recent product). In fact in some respects it's better, as it's less flexible the weave pattern is less likely to be distorted during the wrapping process.

If you had that bad of an experience, you probably did something wrong.

Dinoc and 1080 are both 3M the Dinoc is the 'first gen' material and is a dry carbon. The 1080 is more realistic and a high gloss.

How do you take apart the key fob to do this?

You just look at the wide end of the remote and there is a little slot in-between the two pieces where you stick in something like a flat head screw driver and pry the two parts apart.

Shaved the front plate mount and used some to do a quick "audi mask" to cover up the plastic surgery and putty till the front cover gets more repairs, modifications and repainted.

I actually like the look! Reminds me of the Evo.

Went with anthracite 1080 to try something different. For removing the 2008+ dash trim (the swoosh and the rest), I have gathered that its pretty much take the screw off the side then carefully yank/pry it off, correct?

and for trim around the shifter, its a few screws in the center console and under the e brake..

Just finished mine on Thursday. To finish the swoosh, you also need to take off the cover around the speedo cluster, which pulls straight out. If you don't have the plastic pry bars or anything, I used guitar picks. Great for the trim around the stereo. And it sounds like you have the center console right.
I also did the doors, both trim pieces. If you get ambitious, the whole door card has to be taken off, but I used an old soldering iron to melt the plastic holding the trim around the door handle from the back (plus 3 screws) to remove and reapply the piece. Sounds a lot more difficult than it really was.
Took me about 8 hours to cover the stereo piece, paint the swoosh, cover center console piece around the shifter (my 2.5 needed to be sanded down to a smoother finish so that it would adhere better), all four door controls and the two front handle pieces. I'll try to post some pics later.

I'm def jumpin' on this thread by summer's end. -Building a Carbon Fiber kayak, & yes real carbon fiber (hand laid). I must say Polyester is a whole lot less forgiving than Epoxy. Maybe within the next year, I'll find an open booth & begin bumper to bumper (excluding the drs)

^Ah, thanks. Definitely interested in pictures. I will be tackling this tomorrow and Sunday, and from the looks of it the anthracite is a bit bright but should still look better than the stock scratch magnets.

So I just had one pic of the inside of the door and it turned out really blurry and far away, so all I have is the finished product. I'm planning on doing my door speakers within the next month or so and will have the door cards off again and will try to take some better pics of the mounts then for the handle piece.

Tried out some 1080 wrapping... After three tries this was the best I could do. I think the angles are just too much to wrap this piece. I'll probably just peel that right back off:



Lots of wrinkles to the sides of the shift boot.

You can use this stuff on anything in the house lol... built a computer inside an old DVD player and coated my power supply with it. Looks much better than bare metal.
