3D Carbon 2022+ WRX Outer AC Vent Overlays
Did you know that Subaru actually makes JDM trim pieces with textured vinyl pre-installed? We found that out with the last generation of parts we imported. For the same look, you can actually apply the vinyl yourself. It will give it a textured appearance and covers up minor scratches.
This material is durable and will last for years.
For the 3D Carbon material, do not apply wax. Just clean with normal soap and water. The appearance can be further enhanced a lot by the use of 303 Aerospace Cleaner.
Comes with 4 individual pieces that overlap. This makes it a much easier install!
NOT ALL MATERIALS ARE CREATED EQUALLY
CUSTOMER MESSAGE - "Got them just now, thanks for including a(n) extra set! I've had 2 sets of CF look ones from another seller and silver stars kept peeling and the carbon look faded really bad."
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.

Rated EXCELLENT for WATER RESISTANCE, HUMIDITY RESISTANCE, and SOLVENT RESISTANCE.
Clean the surface of the trim. Make sure it is free of any residue including Armor All or other protectants.
The ideal install temperature is 75 degrees. Get in your vehicle and make sure the trim piece and vinyl are that temperature. Use your AC or heat to achieve it. Since these are very thin vinyls you want to make sure it is not excessively hot in your vehicle!
NOTE: Initial placement of the vinyl will dictate if you have even coverage. Make sure you are able to center the vinyl.
View our photo as a reference of where to start. This is the easiest place to center up the vinyl. Then work yourself outward. Work a few inches in each direction at a time until you meet again at the top.
The DIY install will leave you proud of the work you've done. A great conversation piece as others will probably want to know how you did it all.
