3D Carbon Center Instrument Panel Dash Trim
The plain, soft plastics used for the interior of the WRX / STI can look cheap. They actually scratched pretty easily as well. Add a darker, textured carbon fiber appearance with this simple vinyl modification.
NOT ALL MATERIALS ARE CREATED EQUALLY
When purchasing vinyl overlays, keep in mind that not all materials are created equally. I use premium vinyl which has high initial costs, but are the industry standards for high quality materials. Also made in the USA. - Dragon Wrap™ Carbon Fiber Films (3D Carbon) is a 5.6 mil calendered vinyl film featuring a clear repositionable permanent acrylic adhesive on an air-egress liner. This film has excellent dimensional stability, outstanding durability and outdoor performance. - This repositionable permanent adhesive offers minimal initial bond growing to permanent bonds that facilitates application of large graphics. The air egress liner also aids in large graphic application. - Minimum application temperature is 40 degrees Fahrenheit. - Up to 5 year durability outdoors. Rated EXCELLENT for WATER RESISTANCE, HUMIDITY RESISTANCE, and SOLVENT RESISTANCE.
Care Details: Concept Carbon Fiber film should be maintained to preserve long term appearance using standard aftercare products designed for textured exterior vinyl surfaces. A commercially available protectant such as Armor All or 303 Aerospace Protectant is recommended. DO NOT use waxes of any type.
Clean the panel and prepare them it for install. Make sure they are clean and free of products like Armor All.
Start the installation by aligning it to the edge closest to you. From here you can press down in the center and push air bubbles out by moving back and out towards the sides.
Please look at the photos closely to see how we aligned it. Should you come across air bubbles that you just can't get out, grab a corner and pull it up carefully. Start to push the air out once again.
