Default the start of carbon fiber

heres what i got done so far. i ordered this from decalgirl.com for $4.49 a foot and i got 5 feet. shipping wasnt bad at like $5.00

this is basically a vinyl film that is put over anything clean. its a black film with silver squares painted on it to achieve the carbon fiber look. the stuff its pretty sticky and is flexible, however its hard to get in really tight corners, that is why i couldnt wrap it around inside around the radio and ac control openings. well i just did the main dash piece so far, as it looks the easiest and this is what i got.

ps. make sure do this

and making the steering wheel controls work

some things i have learned about driving without a dash for 3 weeks:

you have no idea how much gas you have...so fill up if you forget
traction control doesnt work at all...button doesnt even light up
it looks really tacty!

have everything just sitting on my pingpong table right now
