Thank you both.

I do believe it'll be a while before we see those hitting the market.

Both, technically. I'd be doing the wrap with a coworker or two at the dealership I work at.

One concern I have with it. At the very least I have some real CF on the car to make up for it. CF vinyl is hard to pull off in my opinion.

Today I spoke to my manager at least to let him know of my idea. I would have the wrap done in our 3M workstation as it's a warm and clean environment, better than a home garage this time of year. The quote for materials and my coworkers' time is decent too, now to make the final call.

In the end I think I'm leaning towards gloss black over CF as well. It'd match the numerous Piano Black pieces on the outside, and still work with the carbon fiber I have.
