I've taken the CF Plunge...

Evening all..

Having seen a couple of threads detailing covering the rear C pillars (vs replacing..) I've decided to follow suit...

My pillar covers had one or two small scratches, nothing major, but I know they're there....

So, one roll of fairly high quality CF film later..

Before & after pics now attached





Subtle, but far tidier..

As per other posts, all I did was cut out a larger piece thanthe cover, stick on (working from the centre outwards to remove bubbles) and then trim in situ with a new scapel blade (X Acto for those over t'pond) - simples...

I'll take a look at the front bumper vents (as per the Black Series bumper) too, but not much more... don't want to over do it...

Cheers
Sean

I did some research on some of the films, settled on the embossed one (to remove the potential for bubbles) and ended up with this

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3D-Carbon-...item337ec72aa3

OK price wise, quick to ship (in a very sturdy tube) - got a couple of metres to play with... (the C pillars don't use much...!)

Cheers

Looks like either CF3D2 or CF3D3 (depending on the size of the weave you want..)

Great work Sean !

Once again SLKWorld members come up with multiple options (I think this is #4 - replace, wax, paint, CF ) for owner's to fix one of the car's substandard components.

If only the seat bottoms were so easily remedied.

Jeff,
If I read it right an order of 1 linear foot for $19.99 will get you a piece 12 inches by 60 inches. Enough for your car and mine too ! Want to go halfsies ?

Jeff the CF3D2 and CF3D3 have an End Use Temp of -4F. That maybe ok if you never leave Florida. It looks like I will have to get the expensive 3M stuff with End Use Temp of -65F

...This is Jeff we're talking about...-4F ... I think he'd walk instead!!!!

I don't think Florida gets that cold... (Although it was pretty chilly when I was over there a couple of years ago Jan/Feb 2010 - to watch the last night time shuttle launch, but it was at 4am ish when it lifted .... temperature was fine during the day)

More CF...

...So, back onto the original thread topic....

Added a small CF panel to the side grill vent on the front bumper. (both sides!!)..



Not sure if I should do the rear-most one too... may have a go tomorrow and see how it looks... (I'll wrap it round the bumper and into the wheel arch if I do do it...)

Cheers
Sean
