Wrapped my own spoiler 3M 1080 CF!

The Revinora RCRT is getting installed on Monday. I have the gloss black painted CF but I realized that it needs some protection so I got some 3m 1080 3D carbon fiber wrap protected from chips. Here are the shots.

It was pretty easy took about 30 minutes with a blow dryer, blade and soapy water bottle.

What do you guys think?

But now you just made the lip cheezy looking with the 3M CF!

AutoVinylSoultions sell a clear or matte clear protection film, easy to install!

It doesn't look bad but a shame you are covering glossy carbon fiber under that. A great way to restore a busted lip though.

Good thing is that its easy to peel off. I am ghetto fab when it comes to protection. I have a hard time taking off the plastic protective stickers on all of my electronic devices.

it's exterior rated, but this thing turns white and dull.
I just think you paid so much for a real CF lip, and you go and wrap it with a fake one, its kinda weird.

But again, its to your own liking. props for the quick wrap tho!

Maybe Steve can correct me if I'm wrong but I think it was a painted lip that he covered with CF wrap.

I think he was just stating that the construction of the lip is CF but not exposed CF.

But maybe I misunderstood as well...

Haha thanks brotha. Me too?! I just dropped off the car today for the respray of my front bumper and installation of the lip. Worst case scenario....I peel it off. But I showed my wife and she thought it looked great.

We will see the end result in a couple days....

Thought about putting that on the roof of my sedan? Not sure how a big surface like that would look? Not about to spend thousands on a roof when the turbo F80's are around the corner.

I think you can order a sample from 3M or any 3M vendor. The quality is pretty amazing for vinyl. Looks great and has a great feel to it. Not sure how it will hold up to the elements but it has a 5 year exterior/10 year interior application warranty.
