Smile New Carbon Wrapping Project: Mercedes C63 AMG

Hey;

Was just given the complete trim interior trim from a buddies C63 AMG. Wants it done in black carbon fiber cloth (no 3M DiNoc here).

So far, have applied carbon fiber cloth and first coat of resin. Parts in pictures below are at VERY early stage and still require trimming and alot of work before they are complete, but they're in process.

The one really cool thing I've tried and it's worked so far, is wrapping the 3 centre dash pieces (center air vents, radio surround, etc) is wrapping all 3 pieces using a single piece of cloth, so when they are complete, there will be one continuous weave through all 3 pieces....

Here are the first pictures (alomg with a couple of the interior before the process began.







Centre console wrapped as one piece.


Separated (still need to cut-out all the holes for the dials, etc):


Cup Holder:


Ashtray:


Shifter Surround + heater controls:


Door Trim:


Seat controls:


Still need to tackle the gauge surround (big black piece around speedo, tach, etc gauges) and he's pushing to get Steptronic paddles done too, but concerned about operational interference and functionality if its wrapped.

The pictures REALLY don't do the parts justice as they look really rough now, But I expect them to look real sweet when done (especially the centre control centre)

Been staring at the thousand holes I need to trim and just shaking my head. I was really not looking forward to doing the control centre, but he insisted.... next time; it's double!! LOL

Definitely will when completed. These pictures are essentially real-time and reflect the stage the parts are at currently. I will hopefully be finishing these up in next 4-5 days and ship back to my buddy in California. He said he will take pictures and email them when installed....

Finished trimming centre console sections.... think they came out pretty nice so far. need to be sanded and 3-4 more coats of resin before they're ready to be clear coated, so disregard finish @ this stage...

Thanks for all the comments. Really appreciated....

Finally got the parts trimmed. Still need to wrap the outside vents and gauge surround which are being done after I post. Here are the pictures:

Finally got these parts finished. Had some family issues that took me away from the wrapping for about a week, but parts are now finished and just need to re-assembled and final trim (removal of last excess resin, etc.) and they're shipping.

Here are the pictures:

Hey;

Got the parts finished... Buffed, polished and final trim.

Here's a few pictures taken before he took them (happened to be visiting relatives in town and so dropped by to pick them up).
