Thanks for the info. I've seen the samples, just never thought about actually doing it. If only there was a green/black carbon fiber!

Not digging it. No offense took another look and really don't care for it. Doesn't match up, to light and to much. You even did the handle to the glove box. That for sure was not needed. But glad you like it and you did an excellent job putting it on.

Order the 4 pack of samples for 5 bucks from that site. Got real carbon fiber, chrome, brushed aluminum and aluminum. Gonna see how they look. But I still don't want the whole kit, wondering if I can just get specific pieces.

The installation looks really professional. One exception, what happened on the air vent on the passenger-side?
Also, I'm thinking about the carbon fiber kit, and I'm wondering how long the installation took you?
Thanks.

The two splits are molded on the vents. It is due to the curvature of it. the kit is flat so they had to split it for it to follow the contour.

It took maybe 30 minutes, pretty easy. It is very important to get the surface clean especially around the curves, I have two spots that are not holding well I have to fix, the rest is on pretty good so far.

Yes, the glove box handle is going to be removed, I'll probably take some other stuff off too to tone it down. It is a bit too light. I like the idea, just need to find the right color. Maybe the new Ebony Zebra or a darker wood. Time will tell...

I don't think you can order separate pieces Pony. Google is your friend. I used the kit in my expedition and saturns in the past. Cannot believe I forgot I had an expedition for four years. Time flys lol. These kits are the same manufacturer on every vendor. It's the best deal that counts. I didn't do the foci as I did the vinyl for under $20 bucks. It was mortgage week at that time :)
