Carbon Fiber Vinyl - Front Grill, Side Mirros and Fog Lights

..and so I tried some ideas using photoshop and thought to implement them

bought a carbon fiber vinyl and wrapped my front grill slate, side mirrors and fog light with it..I did the fog lights as I wanted to hide them after installing LED DRLs..this is my first time playing with CF vinyl..here are some pics

I like the grille actually. I'd think you'd be running the risk of easy peeling considering how small the surface is of which it's attached to?

the slates are CF covered from front and 25% on both sides so I hope it doesn't peel off too soon..else I will either do a better wrap on whole slates or just replace the chrome slates with black gloss slates
