Nice.

I am thinking of doing the dash storage unit on my car (no iDrive). I've scratched the button that opens it and my OCD won't let it go.

I've not looked at it yet but can you get the bin out, or does it have to be worked on while still attached?

A quick search found this thread which is a bit scary.... http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=222753

not too bad at all. Easy compared to pulling out the centre console.

I'd pull it out and wrap it, then you will get much better edges.




Tips for people intending to wrap;

1) Clean the surface that intend on wrapping, including the back edge that the wrap will also stick too.

2) ensure that the wrap piece is about 4cm bigger all round than item that you are covering. The wrap's stickiness will run out if handled too much.

3) Try to avoid touching any of the wrap (sticky side) that will make contact.

4) use a hair dryer to help soften the wrap so you can stretch it to go around corners and edges.

5) take your time. apply the wrap carefully and gently trying to eliminate all bubbles. If there are bubbles carefully push them out to the edge.

6) ensure that the CF pattern is all flowing in the same direction

7) Ensure that the edges are wrapped well and fully stuck down. Carefully cut off excess unneeded wrap.

7) Enjoy your work.

this looks awesome, i'd love to try it on mine. i have a question though... with the wrap on, and extra width on the plastics, how is the refitting of the wrapped parts?

do they go back on as easy as they came off? i would imagine it would be a tighter fit afterwards?

The wrap is pretty thin. I didn't notice any difference with putting the parts back on.

cheers

I wrapped my bin over the weekend. It was a pain in the arse. The lid is a real bitch, you basically have to dismantle the whole thing, and then break the plastic injection molding in the actual lid. I ended up putting it all back together at night, so I haven't seen it in daylight hours!

I'll post up pics when i get a chance.

cheers

don't leave your car out in the sun with vinyl wrap - it will bubble and shrink. At least mine did.
cheers
