Yeah, I have had some experience with the vinyl wrap myself, both inside and out. I wrapped the dash of my 2008 VW Passat three different times, in three different colors.
Brushed Aluminum (black)
I finally settled on the black brushed aluminum but also experimented with carbon fiber on the inside and felt it was too much. I did however do my exterior window frames and badge background in Carbon fiber though.
It all looked pretty good on a black (murdered out car) like my VW, but I for some reason am looking at the SLK with more of a classic car eye and while I have no issues with modifying it, am leaning towards keeping it stock in appearance, or at least maintaining that classiness that wood brings.
I even at one point covered every single piece of chrome on my VW with gloss black or Carbon fiber material. I think I went a little overboard, but I was younger then and it was after all just a VW. A couple more... god I miss this car.
Anyway, sorry about that I get carried away when I talk about some of my old cars. I haven't had my SLK long enough to really dive into projects on it like I tend to do, so remember fondly the last car and the projects I did. I have tons of ideas for my SLK, but believe it or not am already looking down the road to where I can afford a face-lifted SLK55... but I guess I should have fun with what I have, right?
Again, sorry about high jacking my own thread with a love feast of an old car, but I digress. So what were you saying about a brilliant idea?
