Thumbs up New Project - Part 1 - Interior Trim Wrap

Hi Guys,

Had some free time last weekend and spend it to wrap my MDX's interior trim. Took me about 2 Hours to finish.
Its not perfect, but for a first timer I think it's good.
Used VVIVID XPO Black Carbon Fiber 5ft x 1ft Car Wrap Vinyl Roll with Air Release Technology
Thought of sharing pics with you guys.
Enjoy.....

Looks nice. I really like that color seats. Wish my 2012 was that color.

Nice. Yeah- brown or red leather is the best. I thought it was only available in grey (bleh) or beige (Not bad- what I got)

More like it took you 2 hours to have an auto body/detailing shop do it. If you really did do it post some DIY photos.

Never mind - mea culpa - I'd thought the center console had wood beyond just the sliding cover for the bin. As you can tell I never looked closely beyond the Tech.......

Now back to your regularly scheduled discussion.....

wow....thanks for the compliment. I suppose it looks that good that you think it was done by a auto Body shop.
Sorry that I could not take pics while doing it. Too much work. Well to take photos while wrapping it.
Planning to wrap some more this weekend. Will try to take pic this time just for you ;-)

Thank again :-)

It's a magnetic charging car mount for my iPhone X (or for any phone compatible with Qi). Got it from Amazon for about $22.67 during Lightning promotion. Looks and works great. This one.

Don't go through the hassle of having to justify that you did this yourself. Some people will never be satisfied lol.

I wrapped the beak on my TLX and I know it is not easy job. Looking at your work, it is hard to believe you are first timer, that looks as good as a professional job.
