Interior trim custom wrapped in Carbon Fiber by oCarbon!

www.ocarbon.com/

NEW PICS HERE!!!!
http://ocarbon.com/blog/2012/12/a-fe...t-shipped-out/

My "blog" from Matt:
http://ocarbon.com/blog/2012/10/just...et-of-trim-in/

First off, let me start this by saying Matt at oCarbon has been a breeze to work with. Aside from the time to actually do the sanding, priming, wrapping, clearcoating, polishing, and finishing, its been a VERY smooth process (which is to be expected when each piece is done by hand with a VERY meticulous person like Matt).

Matt started wrapping trim work and parts for the Audi scene a few years ago. My younger brother got his interior of his B7 A4 wrapped and i was blown away by the quality, depth and fitment of the parts. At the time, i didn't have the money for that sort of job and figured that it wouldn't fit well in my GR STI interior.

Flash forward a year and a half and Matt is looking to expand his market via Facebook. I had been following him for a bit, looking at a lot of the custom work he does and the pride that he takes in every part he wraps. He also offers Kevlar weaves as well as different weave patterns for his wrap material.

He sent me pictures through the whole process, keeping me up to date with what was going on.

Take a look at some of his galleries of the CTS-V and the Porsche. Those are what really look perfect to me, but i knew that the normal black Carbon Fiber would be the best choice for me.

Some more finished pictures:






My plans are as follows:

Finish installing the normal trim work and then remove some of the trim that is not normally done, including the steering wheel surround, start button ring, iDrive control surround and some other parts and have him wrap those next.

Install/removal is not bad at all. Everything but the console pieces just pull right off. The console isnt even bad either if you have some instructions (which i will be putting together for Matt for his DIY guides).

Please post up any questions/comments!

Not sure on the exact pricing he has set up. Should be on par with the BMW Performance trim set, but this is MUCH better quality. He will also work with you on other stuff to. I think he would do mirror covers and even lips/diffusers if you ask nicely

He really does a fantastic job. I'd love to get my interior done in that blue Kevlar weave.

I toyed with the idea of the white Kevlar but I ended up deciding it would be a bit too bold and look a little ricey for my taste.

These trim pieces do look better than my BMW Performance Carbon Interior, which is made by the same process. Many people mistakenly think the BMW interior pieces are made of carbon when in fact they are just wrapped in the same fashion.

Really nice looking stuff and please post some installed photos.

Very true, if you ever look at the BMW Carbon Fiber steering wheel trim, part of it can't be wrapped fully because of clearance issues and thus shows how they wrapped the part.

Dayum! I must say the quality on that job is amazing. If I had the money I would pull the trigger.

I don't want CF trim but I gotta say, this looks great. They should have no problem getting more business if they keep this quality up, and the prices aren't bad at all.

I agree. I am actually really surprised he hasn't expanded his exposure more.

CF on the interior is over done IMO, but he does great work!

I would agree with you if you said "fake" CF on the interior is over done. I dont like the look of wood grains at all and the glacier silver or aluminum trims look almost as cheap as the fake CF wrap IMO. The only other color trim i would have wanted is the Piano black, but at least the real CF has some depth do it.

Going to see how much it would cost to wrap some mirror covers and go the better route.

My knock off overlays arn't cutting it anymore!

Yeah, I couldn't take the walnut. Went with black.

Love the black. I have it in my 1'er so classy. I believe the wraps come out to be just about the same as the performance parts maybe a little less.
