    So, coming from the Audi world, I’ve always liked updating the interior of my vehicles. There’s lots of carbon, piano black, brushed aluminum and cool details in German interiors. I was thinking of buying a bezel for the dash and around the shifter and wrapping them in carbon fiber. Not the tape, actual carbon fabric and doing the multiple stage epoxy to make it pop. If that goes well, I would move on to the door trim. Ultimately I’d like to add the carbon flat bottom wheel to round it off. Thoughts?

    Would be interested to see the results for sure. This was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this post.

    I actually used ocarbon to do my B5 S4 back in the day. Awesome product. So, I’ve decided to forge ahead with this project in a slightly different manner - hydrodipping. If you haven’t seen it before - here’s a cool video.

    No affiliation with this guy but cool video. I am doing the gauge surround (removing the trim rings that will be finished in a yet to be determined color), the shift surround, the sides of my TRD pro shifter, cup holder in the center console and the window switch trim. I’m also waiting on my Loncky Steering wheel cover in perforated black on sides, smooth on top and bottom with red stitching. Parts go into a local shop on Monday and hopefully I’ll be back together by Thursday. Pics to come

    About $425 all in. High gloss clear. If I did a matte finish it would have been $350

    i personally don’t like those sticker kits. It’s obvious that they are just stuck on after thoughts. After researching, and not wanting to drop $12-1500 on a real carbon setup I looked into hydro-dipping. The results look great - especially after being clear coated, is a fraction of the cost of traditional carbon, and isn’t that stick on stuff that looks cheap. For the price I figured I’d give it a shot.

Trying to come up with a cool color for the gauge bezels and trim around shifter. Any suggestions? Leaning towards white or red.

    Getting there. Not too sure how crazy I am about this piece. I have not seen it in person. He said it was a tough piece to dip.
