    wrapped center console

    ok guys finally had the time to work on my center console. I followed this video on how to remove the console.


    Then i removed each aluminum hockey side and proceeded to wrap it. Used some plastic squeegee which I taped the tip to make sure it doesn't scratch the vinyl, and my wife's hardryer to heat the vinyl. Took a few hours as the edges of the sticks were a bit hard to wrap properly, and the fact that i ordered the vinyl off ebay and it appears to be a non 3M one. It's not bad but I believe the 3M would have been easier to manipulate.

    It looks really good. I wish I had the skill set to do this.

    Thanks. This is actually the first time I've done this thing, so I'm sure you'd do better if not the same

    Very nice. Great job. One thing I love about this car is it really lends itself to custom touches, whereas all the other mid-size SUVs are too boring.

    Looks very good with light interior. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... but I think it looks great the way it is. IMHO, I think the gloss would be a bit over the top.

    Thanks. Yea I wanted the matte look but I think with the gloss the wrap would look more authentic carbon fiber. It's still up in the air if I'll gloss it or keep it as is. Also thinking of making molds of it and making real carbon fiber hockey stick sides.

    If most of you guys prefer the matte look then I'll keep it as is.

    Thanks again

    I wonder how well the plastic coating will hold up to daily wear...like the mentioned seat belt, etc.
    You shouldn't have to stop just because the pavement does! 2012 Range Rover Evoque Pure Plus Coupe, 2009 Land Rover LR2 HSE traded, 2008 Land Rover LR2 SE traded.
