Carbon fiber wrapping door trims anyone?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

I just noticed my R33 GTR front door trims are starting to show its age and shows some rips so it's time for me to do something that I've always wanted to try which is to wrap them in carbon fiber. Has anyone done this and how hard was it? Which time of wrap did you use and how long did it take?

Also, does the wrap come with adhesive or will have I to spray it with adhesive glue? 

Any photos would be great!

Sorry but that’s a terrible idea. It looks soo trashy.
Either find second hand replacements or if you are dead set on carbon try finding someone that makes inner door trims

It won't stay stuck to something that moves, like the padded vinyl that the door trims already are.  Will bubble and lift and....look trashy.  More trashy even than when it was fresh.

What you said is 100% spot on. I just spoke one of my friends who does vinyl wrapping on the side and he said the same. 

I just came back from a Jap wrecker and bought used replacement trims ended up costing $250 for the pair but you're right better idea as wrapping is probably not an option.

Thanks for your reply - helpful as usual!

You're right mate. I thought about it and felt this would sacrileges to do especially toward a GTR so I ended up going to a local wrecker and buying replacement trims.  

I guess for a 25 year old car the trims being worn is a given. 

Thanks for your honest opinion.
