I measured the remaining roll. I used 38 inches of the 60. I think if you really planned it out, you could do it with 3ft. Measure 3 times and cut once Good Luck

The vinyl has a brushed finish as shown in the two close up pictures.





The difference is noticeable, but for me, it was supposed to. Check the 3M vinyl site for other finishes. Happy wrapping

2002 Acura RSX  [0.00]
Exactly what I was looking for. I have the same walnut trim with oyster interior and it is much too "stately" for my taste. Definitely need something sportier. Ordered 5 or 6 different 3M 1080 samples from amazon to see what color I'd like to change it to. I think I even ordered the brushed steel, but will probably go with something darker as the trim around the DCT is silver and would be very redundant.

Nice job though!
