    i too have the same plans. did wrap the dash board silver strip with red reflective vinyls..
    and as for the console.. i did want them to be in black.but due to the console control and buttons being in silver..i ordered for silver carbon fiber vinyls from ebay.. got them delivered like 3months bck and still have't got it done.. my limitation is, i do't have the tools to remove the music system.. as i prefer DIY

    carbon fiver paint..? did u mean carbon fiber vinyls..? actually carbon fiber painting is doable.. when i tried to wrap my car alloys with vinyls.. i did some research in youtube..and stumbled across this

    Yes Thomman, i meant carbon fibre paint....Its a kind of spray method I guess......Black minuscule cubes over dark minuscule grey cubes....

    Thomman, I am not sure about the silver carbon fibre....BTW when are you planning to finish the job....I wanna see how it turns out.

    Why don't you go for a black carbon fibre, thats the best bet....Either ways you figure out what's the best

    Halfclutch, This is for the center silver panel and the side strips on the dashboard and not the entire dashboard....

    I don't know when i can finish.. when i do i will definitely update..

    as for the black cf.. well, i want black.. but as i mentioned in my previous post, the buttons on the console are silver and i felt it would look odd, with the black and silver combo..

    i unrolled the cf sheet 1st time to take the picture and notices the bulges.. so the quality,if it would stick properly is question that bothers me..

    and cost me $5 including shipping for 3ft long.

    @halfclutch: as Charan posted.. this is for the center console.. nothing will stick on the dash board due to its fire resistant texture.

    I am thinking of speaking to 3M guys to do the CF job, I am a little doubtful if they would do it on the center panel and side strips coz its risky and 3M guys never take chances with these stuff and meanwhile I am also thinking of making my roof CF'd by 3M, will check for the prices and update.....
  9. Roof CFing at 3M chennai costs around 5-6K. They have 3 different types of CF (glossy, Matte and the checked) in 3 different quality each at different price / SqFt. Let us know how much it costs in bangalore. Should be more or less the same.

    Charan, I spoke to 2 of the 3M centers in bangalore and the job seems to cost quite a bit.
    RMV 2nd stage 3M center quoted the below price for just the roof of Punto
    11000 carbon fiber vnyl
    7000 matt finish vnyl

    and HSR layout 3M center quoted per sft price
    352 per sft carbon fiber vnyl

    I spoke to these 2 centers yesterday, 21st Nov'2012


    Srida, are you sure about the price !!
    It seems to be way costlier in Bangalore :(
