Awesome! Glad they fit. See? All that worry for nothing. Loved the write-up! I LOVE that your husband placed the template and handed the drill to you! (Gabi laughed too!) As for not being able to see what you are doing, welcome to the world of mechanics! I affectionately (#@*!) refer to this as "using the force" LOL. Great job, my friend, these look very clean and will be a welcome addition to your rig, I am sure.

LOL @ Using the force. Having had this experience, I can TOTALLY relate! So funny that you mention that since I said the exact same thing to my husband during one of his turns under the truck! LOL! Star Wars is a very strong influence in my home... would still like to get custom badges made for my Ram.. she is most certainly the Millennium Falcon.. and especially after what she put us through last night! LOL! (Although I've never referred to her as a bucket of bolts!)

I've decided to try carbon fiber.. I thought the brown would look good and accent the wood grain panel well.. so I bought the sample sizes of matte black and brown.

Stock look..


Here's a pic of a strip of each color on either side of the radio..


Although the brown is unique and not done by many others.. it doesn't look as good as the black.

So black carbon fiber it is.

Now the problem is the wood grain panel stands out too much since I can't work with the look and appearance of it. So, I tried using PS CS3 to try to picture what it would look like if the wood panel is covered with carbon fiber.. let's just say I suck at this. LOL!

If anyone else knows how to use Photo Shop, I'd appreciate it if they'd try to take a stab at this?

My attempt..



The ultimate look I would like to achieve is to wrap/cover the 4 A/C vent chrome bezels, the gearshift chrome bezel and the wood grain center panel all with black carbon fiber.

Still unsure what I will do about the panels on the doors. I'm open to ideas!

Also need to know what you guys who have worked with carbon fiber think about how much and what size sheet of carbon fiber I am going to need to accomplish all of this.

Your attempt is pretty bad ass. I like it. Much better than I could do.
