Hi,

The black plastic around the gear shifter is scratched and even worse I made a hole by accident while adding the Android Auto kit. I'm trying to find a carbon fiber wrap for it that's already cut to size but the only ones I see for sale are MT with a parking brake. I have checked ebay, aliexpress, amazon, and on google images for even a picture of it but I can't find one.

An example wrap------------------------------ What I have (with electronic brake)

Does anyone know of a store that sells these in that format?

I got that Vivid vinyl wrap and I did my roof, luggage rack, hood, mirrors and some of the details around the windows. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE STUFF.

At about $60 for a 10ft long, 5ft wide rool of it, its not bad.

There is some trial and error with it, you cannot do it without a heat gun and a squeegie (however you spell it) but with enough time and patience, it comes out beautifully.

I chose to use the matte on my gloss paintjob and it offsets it nicely. I saw a guy who had matte wrap and matte black paint and his Evo looked like a stealth fighter. I might matte black the rest of my car around my wrap in the near future.

The hood was a nightmare near the grill. (Itll be much easier to do if you have two or three people) but I recommend it!

I not aware of pre cut so cant help you. I can say as i did my own it is not that difficult. Here is a couple pictures of mine
Hey, can you give me a link to where you got the material?
You did a really great job was that using a template or just laying it over the plastic and cutting?

Thanks
