    I'll have one in a few weeks which has been carbon dipped. If it turns out ok I'll post some pics up of it along with details on where it was done.

    Stick on carbon does the job but it can't go round corners etc like carbon dipping can.

    This is carbon dipping. Notice how the carbon seems to flow around corners, you can't do that with stickers as a rule. However it's not exactly cheap, a centre console carbon dipped is approx £71 to do plus all the postage costs and bank transfers etc, say around £100 all in



    These aren't great pics but you can get the idea.

    Just stock photos I'm afraid, no ones I know. However they do look very good. Can't figure out how he got them off the door card though.

    Isn't it the whole of the bottom of the door card - cut off??

    Mine are kinda in 2 sections, I reckon it could be split with a knife, would be an arse to get back together though.
