Im curious if anyone has tried or done their own ideas. If it didnt print let me know what i can do to try to help. I still have my original templete and i can take some time to make one on paper and i would even mail it to someone who is more computer design inclined than myself.

I like the way that it turned out. How is it holding up?

Thisis its second winder to flakeing, to peeling. its gone through at least a car wash a month (due to the salt up here) I have no complaints, its just takes time. No fading either.

I can't say I'm into this type of thing, in my personal opinion eye lids don't look right on these. But sir I must give you a thumbs up for originality and quality. I must ask tho why carbon fiber vinyl? Most people do black vinyl or use plasti dip. Not that ether of those would look better, I'm just curious to what made you go for carbon fiber for eye lids :p.

Well the Carbon Fiber i wanted for the chrome next to the ford emblem. Because IMO it looks differnt haveing black trim and than another smaller black inlet thing.
The carbon fiber i choose is not the the new 3M Noc-3 (i think thats what it is) that has more of a grey black color where mine is more black ...less of a major color change for the car. I also intend to do some more with this vinyl.
Long story short i choose this because i havent dont plasti dip and im sure it would get chipped by the snow/ ice up here or rocks. and for black i just wanted a little texture.

Hope it helps
