Thank you for sharing, your results are far above anything I would have expected! Excellent install, with the choices of wraps that are now available, it looks like the possibilities could be endless.

Did you cut the pass air bag and wrap it as 2 panels?

Anyone know if it would be ok to wrap it in one peice or would the panel need to be be cut in half, and the two pieces wrapped individually?

Your original panels were already in 2 pieces were they not?

Look forward to seeing the pics in the daylight...

Chris...You're a ****! I hate you! I say that with so much love it simply can't be expressed in mere words.

I've been following this thread and you've gone way beyond what I could ever hope to achieve. More pics please. I can't get enough of them. Simply outstanding work!

I wish I was back in Arizona...you'd have to get a restraining order to get rid of me; begging you to do this for me. LOL!

I don't care for CF and I don't like anything that is fake and covers the stock stuff as it reminds me too much of "riceresque." Had you started a poll about doing it I would have screamed from a mountain top for you to not do it, but this looks flawless!

If you lived closer (to fix me screwing up) I would almost attempt this myself.

haha, thanks everyone. Now that the install hasn't been in my thoughts, the end result really does feel OEM. I might rewrap the switchplates to get to perfection on them (the switchholes are just very complex, I have a couple ideas on them).

The thing I can't capture in pictures is how the look changes based upon how the light hits the panels. I love it.
