^^ I would like to know this as well, and how long it took to wrap the wood trim.

Also, which door window visors are those? Looks really nice.

Grille looks good, door handles look odd. Should've wrapped them white.

Honestly I love it better with the gloss black grill but I have seen it with a carbon fiber wrap on a black tlx and it looked nice

I just wrapped my wood trim with carbon fiber I looked around if they make real carbon fiber inserts but as I found only wraps for now

It took me about a hour and half but when doing it take your time and and it will slowly come out looking good.
Also I believe they sell a gloss carbon fiber which is called 3d/4d and is said to look more like real carbon fiber
About the window visors they aren't the same ones the ones from the front windows come from a acura tsx and the ones for the back windows come from a Honda civic si but they both are made in the same style.

I liked how the handles looked before I wrapped them but I'm in love with the black because it gives contrast between the white and black plus I'm also planing on wrapping my roof next week so it should look amazing with it. If not I can always take off the wrap on the door handles

I really like the black grille. Gloss looks really good on a white car. Which do you think would look better with fantham blue, gloss or satin black wrap?
I value everyone's opinion.
Thanks;
Ranger

I meant to ask; is it difficult to remove the grille? I would rather work on a bench than try to wrap it on the car.
Thanks,
Ranger
