CF Wrapped B-Pillars

I also decided to wrap my B Pillars in the 3M DI-NOC cf vinyl that Pro Vinyl Shop was selling for cheap awhile back. I never really liked fake CF but this stuff looks really close to the real stuff. I didn't notice until after i took the pics, but the pattern goes in opposite directions on either side. I may redo it down the road to keep it uniform but for now it will do.

I'm contomplating doing this myself. I just ordered a roll for my interior trim and if there is enough left over I'll probably do it. thanks for the heads up on the direction of the fiber, I probably would have done the same since I installed my sun roof button backwards the first time around!

Yea i even thought about the pattern before doing this and still managed to get it wrong. I probably had it the right way but flipped it upside down to get the straight factory edge at the top for a clean line. Didn't cross my mind then that it would throw off the pattern lol. Its not that big of a deal tho; who's going to look at both sides at the same time lol

Well after looking at it again, it may seem like the pattern is backwards but is not. The pattern goes left to right on both sides of the car. It just seems wrong because its on opposite sides of the car.

From the pictures it looks backwards but the light could be making it look that way.

Where Did you order it? And is that stuff ready to be applied?

I originally got mine from Pro Vinyl Shop. I got mine at a steep discount cause it was the last bit of remaining stock that they wanted to get rid of so they could make room for some new rolls of it. It comes with backing to it similar to wax paper. You simply peel off the backing and put it on whatever you want. The best part is that i conforms very easily and if removed it doesn't leave any residue behind

That's what I thought, but I have never bought any since I wasn't 100% sure
