Did you do that car? Whoever did, it looks like it was done well from the distance we are seeing it at.

No I did not. Just answering the wheel question.

That car was seamed in a couple places I personally wouldnt be happy with, likely because of the usage of 48" material. It looks good none the less.

Ah gotcha. Figured you knew a little too much about his wheels to not have taken part in that car

I ordered a sample of this stuff. Let's see if I can wrap my keyfob.

Well, they do look good. That car looks pretty good overall (wheel/wrap combo).

not feeling the di-noc car wrap. would look better in just a straight flat/matte black wrap IMO.

what is maintenance like with a wrapped car? is washing difficult? no waxing i assume.

Simple washing, no waxing, and for the love of god dont try to clay it.

On a Di-Noc wrapped car, since you dont gotta worry about swirls, you can just hit it with shampoo and a brush.

In your hand, you'll immediately know the difference between 3M Di-Noc and printed CF vinyl. 3M is textured. And if you look on the back it says 3M

Give Dan @ MachV a call. Tell him I sent ya. He'll hook you up.
I've tried eBay knock offs and it was complete waste of money. Stick with genuine M Di-Noc stuff!

I have Di-Noc on my front bumper and front lip and they survived winter nicely.

That looks great. I would recomend doing the wood grain trim too. To give an even flow.

I wonder why I have never posted in this thread. I did some to my interior:



On the outside I took some and covered my trunk roof and a rising sun pattern in my hood but I took the pearl from the paint and cleared over it. It gives of a much different look.

I like that clear coat finish, might have to do that to mine when its done. Do you think it matches real carbon?

They have cloth on them but pulled it off and I covered the plastic panel that was behind them. I think it give the impression of carbon but I added a lot of pearl to take away from the carbon effect because I just wanted something to add some pzazz to the car other then just painting it black.
