3M Di-noc carbon fibre


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

One of the guys on NORLOG has had a big chunk of his Exige covered in 3M Di-noc carbon fibre stuff and it got me thinking...

I am not a fan of the fake carbon effect dash in my S4 and, while I usually hate fake stuff like this, I thought it might make it look a bit better.

Real CF would be a nightmare to make DIY I reckon and mostly pointless...

Anyone played with this stuff? I have ordered a sample to have a closer look at it and the youtube vid I found made it look easy to do....

It's very very good - it has proper texture and can be gloss or mat finish.

Quite difficult to tell without having a close look.

Fitting is straighforward but depends on what you are actually wrapping. It will wrap around complex shapes and a little heat will solve creases and help curves.

The end result is directly proportional to how much time and paitence you put in.

Oh, and it's damn expensive ;)

Cool. I've also seen some primer to make it stick to sharp corners, I'll see how well this sample performs and if I like it then have a punt on a big sheet.
