Default Carbon Fiber wrap console

Project of the week...

My buddy came upon some carbon fiber stretchy clotch. We honestly dont know the manufacture, but it is almost like a spandex consistancy but has some carbon texture to it as well.

Either way, using 3m spray glue, he redid my console for me. Love the way it turned out

Looks great! Make sure you leave it in the garage if it's over 90 outside! The first day I drove mine after doing that on a hot day, it peeled off like a 18 year old girls pants on prom night!

I didnt buy the factory piece because personally I dont care for the glossy finish, I perfect more of a mat finish. Also, this was about 2% of the cost of a new console.

Yes the weave is backwards on the tombstone. Anyone have a spare tombstone?
