Looks like he is off to a good start. Few things I feel are out of place; exhaust clamps and the raised buttons on the center console. I like what he did with the CF overlay and might have to copy that.

I did that about 5 months ago and its fairly easy... Only cost me $30 and took me 20 min..

Im actually contemplating on doing my roof and maybe part of my Hood..

This was just a test to see how it looked and I do plan to re-do it and make it look a little neater.



The white is the OLD gauge



If you are going to do it go with the real 3M Di-Noc it comes in 7 colors, stay away from the imitation stuff.
Until Our dealer app gets approved you can buy it from here

Did you pull the trim out or just install with the trim in place? The roof would look sweet! Curious what your plans are for the hood. I have been playing with the idea of grabbing a junk yard hood and painting it black. Keep the stock one red for the next owner.

Looks good btw. I have the dark rose faux wood, doesn't look bad but just seems dated to me.

Same here I just needed a change.
I did it in the car, only removed the radio and the climate control.

All you will need is the Di-Noc, a red-dot knife, a soft tint squeegee, a heat gun, and some patience.

I was thinking about just the center v part from the top corners and around the grille. I upload a pics so you could see what I was talking about.

That stuff looks awsome. Looking at the site, the car console, I wonder how they got that so glossy?

The initial car I seen it in, the SwedeSpeed project car, the guy sold the car 2 years later (in 2007). If I did a project car I think I would keep it for at least 5 years. Sometimes life changes...
