DIY Carbon Fiber Vinyl Wrap on Toyota Vios Interior Trim using Hair Dryer

We always see people wrap their vehicle body or vehicle parts with carbon fiber vinyl and they think it looks cool. Indeed, even myself think this is cool! LMAO, in Malaysia we called this ‘syok sendiri’. Those who don’t understand the meaning, you can ask uncle ‘Google’ icon smile DIY Carbon Fiber Vinyl Wrap on Toyota Vios Interior Trim using Hair Dryer

I have wrapped some parts of my Toyota Vios interior trim with carbon fiber vinyl before this part too. Since there are still a lot rooms to continue,  I decided to continue my left over task. I bought a roll of carbon fiber vinyl that cost me RM20 at On Cost 99 Accessories Shop, Bukit Mertajam .

Procedures:

1. First step: take off the Toyota Vios dashboard parts that are going to be wrapped with carbon fiber vinyl and clean off any contamination on it with damp cloth. Dirty interior trim will not affix properly with the vinyl.

3. Begin to wrap from the flat surface of the interior trim then slowly move to the corner of the part. The adhesive is lasting, and can be pulled off and reapplied rather easily if you mess up. Ensure that there is no air bubble on interior trim, else it will create wrinkles and look ‘cheap’ too icon smile DIY Carbon Fiber Vinyl Wrap on Toyota Vios Interior Trim using Hair Dryer

4. To wrap the corner of the part, you will need a hair dryer. Start to trim around the corner edge of the parts using hair dryer. The carbon fiber vinyl responds very well to heat.
