Yeah a little goes a long ways since this stuff stretches once it gets some heat applied to it. The hood and the roof would be kind of cool on certain cars

Can I advise not to do a carbon wrap? From experience, I have NEVER seen something wrapped in a carbon look that I could say "looked good". Maybe it's just me, but if it's fake then your trying too hard and just looks ricey.

Even if my car had carbon fiber parts I'd still paint over them, it's hideous IMO

Ok so I've decided to abandon the carbon fiber idea for now. I am going to plasti dip my badges and chrome around doors and on my front grill. I still would like to do carbon but I may have to check with vinyl shops to see who can do it.
