Carbon Fiber Vinyl Wrap Hard Top Plastic Deck Lid

Last night I completed this project. After throughly cleaning, with isopropyl alcohol, every inch of the large plastic hard top deck lid, I wrapped it with my Carbon Fiber Vinyl. It took appx 4.5 hours. I completed the wrap with the trunk up for the best access. The results are excellent. It gives this large, black plastic space a whole new look with the top up when viewing thru the back window, but especially with the top down, if you like CF.

The best part of all the CF wrapping is that it is all reversible if I grow tried if it or want a change.

Thanx. I Love (loved) it and think it looks (looked) great.
However, I have had an unexpected set back. I was Top down motoring and while heavy footing it onto the highway at a 110, a little above the the speed limit when the wind/suction that is pulled up over the trunk pulled the CF wrap off the less then sticky plastic. This is called a Forced reversible CF wrap project.

DAYUM! Well it looked nice in the pics... I guess you will have to add more 3M adhesive next time.
