Default Just wrapped halo!

Just finished wrapping my halo with 3M 1080 CF12 black carbon fiber. It took me two attempts, but I've never wrapped anything before this. I love the new look!!

Looks great. I wasn’t sure how it would look with the clear top but that looks cool. Awesome job of doing it yourself.

Where I screwed up the first time was just trying to go too fast. I had a wrinkle, applied too much heat and then messed up the vinyl trying to squeegee it out. The second time I went very slow and used less heat. That's about it.

Looks great. Did you remove the halo? Thinking of doing this to mine but with black.

I left the halo in place. I watched a couple of youtube videos to get the gist of it. This one:

Looks good. Have a blue car too and looking for a transparent top to go with the black halo. Then powder coat my chrome wheels black to finish it off.

Very nice indeed, looks great with your clear top! Anybody know whether the 3M Carbon Fiber come in more of a gloss finish??

I think you may have to get a different brand of vinyl for a more glossy carbon fiber. I ordered the sample pack of 3M colors and that was the only black carbon fiber.

What size sheet did you order?? I'm looking at doing one of my roofs.

Love the blue GS BTW. We were looking for one and never found what we were looking for.
