Thumbs up Windshield Frame Wrapped in 4D Carbon Fiber...

Just wrapped the windshield frame in 4D carbon fiber vinyl... should look awesome with the black hardtop once the weather gets cooler here (maybe I'll wrap the hardtop too )

NICE!!

Think i'll do that upgrade myself, What about doing the side frame on the roof as well, it will look well tidy when the roof is up.

I am not normally a lover of the carbon fiber look but that looks great! Love the contrast with the car, and your seats look great also! Excellent work

Thanks guys! Vinyl wrapping is fairly easy and much more forgiving than window tint. Just search YouTube for some instructions. Another easy (cheaper) way to achieve the total black top effect is with Plasti Dip.

"always porsche", good suggestion on wrapping the softtop side frames and I'll see how applicable those surface areas are.
