Post Carbon Fiber Wrap for your Bow Ties

Received few emails asking about how much was needed to do both the front and rear bow ties. We changed the item photo to make it easier to find.

The piece needed for the bow ties is on the site here



We also have a DIY tutorial in the Camaro DIY & HOW-TO instructions & discussions here - DIY Wrapping your Bow Ties with Carbon Fiber Film

Hi, I'm thinking about getting some of the carbon fiber wrap for my car's interior.
Will this work good on interior trims? Also, what kind of protection, if any, is recommended for interior application? Thanks

Definitely ordering some to get my bow ties done.

Questions though,

Could you wrap the rear valence (stock) with this stuff? How much would I need to do that?

Works great on interior items! With all applications a vinyl protectant like 303 is recommended.

Good list! A few have also asked about the trunk lip & the roof.

Bow ties are a inexpensive mod and pretty easy to do. Not sure about the rear valance. The mfg recommends against applying to unfinished black plastic bumpers - not sure whether the valance would qualify or not. You could always try out the free sample on it and see how well it stays. As for the size you would need to measure the max length and width, adding a few inches extra for handling and go from there.

Just ordered the bow tie kit. I'm assuming I will have a little extra left over. I'll try a piece on the valence and see how it does! I bet if it can be done a LOT of people will want to do it!

I just got my headlight armor for my turn signals etc. Very cool product! Also got my carbon sample, the possibilities for this stuff are endless.

Anyhow, the armor looks awesome against the CGM. Shipping was fast.

Now if I could return the $150 10lb bowtie covers From a year ago...

The necessary size to do the Camaro roof is 54" wide by 60" (5 feet) long. The 54" wide carbon fiber material is on the site here. Select the length roll you would like from the drop down and you are set.

Thumbs up Carbon Fiber Wrap from Headlight Armor on a Dell Latiude Notebook

We have had a lot of "Can I wrap my notebook, netbook, ipad, etc?" questions thus far. Yes, in most cases it is a straight forward application. How hard it will be will depend on how beveled the outer edge is and where the natural end of the material will be. We just installed our Carbon Fiber Wrap on a Dell Latitude notebook lid. Came our fantastic and all in all a pretty easy application.







We were going to trim around the center Dell medallion but during the install decided to go right over it, the material sunk down into the medallion easily with some heat. Once applied and the edges heated we used the natural case edge as a trim guide.

We used the 13.5" x 12" Carbon Wrap for Small laptops / car radio surrounds sheet on the site here. We have 5 different sized sheets available for different sized laptops. Measure your case, allowing for some extra material and order accordingly. Get Christmas gift too!

Hope you like the photos, let us know if you have any questions.

We had several weekend orders for rolls of 54" material from international customers that we had to cancel. The rolls, packaged in a 60" tube, exceed the dimension limitations placed on international orders. We have not found a practical way to ship these large rolls internationally. This is noted on the site. Sorry for any inconvenience.

A further clarification, Puerto Rico is considered a domestic destination. As such even the largest rolls can be shipped there.

Got my wrap monday, was impressed by the looks in person.

Just installed it on my front bowtie and I can't feel my fingers!

I think I just pulled off an install even you guys a headlightarmor would be impressed by.

Got it on with no bubbles or creases in 20 degree windy weather with just a blow dryer. And yes I just said 20 degrees...

Tried to get the bowtie off to do it inside but it just wouldn't budge.

I'll take pics after I do the back...and clean the car =o haha

Pretty sure I wouldn't want to try installing the bow ties out in windy 20 degree weather, hats off to you for getting it done! Looking forward to the photos.

Pics for anyone who wants to know how it looks!






My friend really wants some mow too to cover his roof! I'm just deciding now what else I want but I'll definitely be getting more. I want do my CAI intake and further look into getting that valence done. I'm gonna attach my sample when I get some better weather and see if it sticks and if this stuff will go over the curves of the valence.

I think its possible but I'll need a lot and a good two hours of patience to get it right.

Oh and some good weather!

I have an LS that comes with plastic door panels and dash trim. The door panels and dash trim have a fine granular finish and I was wondering if that would be a problem using this type of wrap, my guess is it would probably work on the those pieces but I just want to make sure if I go that route will there be any issues with adhesion?

Sounds like a great application for the Carbon Fiber Wrap. As with all interior items be sure to thoroughly clean the surface first.
