No before photos unfortunately. I never remember until after its too late.

Wrapped the horseshoe trim and center console with Vvivid vinyl:




I think it came out well. I would have preferred to keep the original gloss black paint, but it was not well cared for.

did something similar to the B-Pillars on my Neon a few years back.
serious oxidiation/fading/etc. with a much cheaper vinyl. but, it's still on the car.(buddy's little bro has it now)

Looks good....cheap alternative versus replacing.

That looks great!

You have inspired me to do the same on my Subaru Forester's damaged trim panels.

A bit of heat, a bit of adhesion promoter for some edges, and a whole lot of patience.

I'll search in a minute (meaning: don't yell at me) but does vvivid vinyl have a website or is it to be found on some "art supply" website?

Vvivid Shop

I picked mine up from Amazon. I used their Black True R Carbon.

Looks great, I will look into this. I just did the GT3 console delete on my Wife's. You lose some convenient storage but it looks great; vintage 911.
