Dont use carbon fibre vinyl wrap
I was interested in the idea of carbon fibre vinyl trim/mods,
today I went to see the company who does my car logoís and stickers for my driving school, and we had a very long chat.
He advised me against this solution.
If you use 3M Di-NOC on smooth painted surface they have a life span (6 to 12 months) and not 5 years as is claimed by some companyís, as they eventually peel off.
Interior use even worse life span, as they donít hold well on plastic trims, especially plastics that are grainy.
They are prone to coming away after a very very short time.
He advised the best solution is:
1. Use 3M Scotchprint Series 1080 Carbon Fibre Wrap.
However the adhesive you have to use is permanent and can not be removed from the body work or trim if you decide to remove your wrap (a re spray or new trims would be required).
2. Or use real carbon fibre cloth by skinning or wrapping. This produces the best results by far and is permanent with no break away ever, however parts/trims would have to be removed from the car to complete this process correctly.
This is old school technology but is the real thing and takes along time to prepare, about 2 days as there are lots of stages to complete and it actually does what its suppose to do, ads strength to your parts/trims or body work.
In summary, a cost effective permanent solution would be to use 3M 1080 scotch print carbon fibre wrap.
A real carbon fibre product that ads value and strength, use carbon fibre fabric.
