Any creative ideas using adhesive vinyl?

What are some of the more creative things people have covered in Vinyl to match exterior paint. I have seen bow ties on front and rear, bow ties on wheel, even keys. Has anyone done anything to the interior? I would think there would be some creative things you could do to enhance the interior look for cheap using adhesive vinyl. Any ideas?

Covered the airbag warning labels, also both the ignition and drivers side key holes.

Here's some stuff I've tried in the past couple of days.
Not to match the exterior obviously, but you could use other colors.
It's starting to become addictive though. It's a very cheap, high impact mod and I'm having trouble stopping!

That stuff looks good djb. you should do a DIY. Did you take the center console out to wrap it or just do it in the car?

I honestly didn't think the center console was going to work / look good so I didn't bother taking pics or anything. I did take it out though. Pull up on the bottom on the part facing the rear of the car, and pull up along the edges. There is 6 pins, 2 in the front, middle, and rear. It comes out pretty simple. As for wrapping, I tried starting at the part with the gear numbers, but found it would bow really bad once it got to the flat part in the middle. So for the best results, start in the middle where the power and traction control button is. (I pulled the tc button out, but left the power cap alone.) Then from there it's just slowly stretching and getting out the bubbles. Be patient because it will take time. You will have to cut it on some of the curved parts to get it to sit flat. Mine has a couple rough parts, but I'm happy with it. If you want a perfect finish, look at hydro-coating. for $20 I'm pretty happy with it. Let me know if you need anything else explained.

I'm not sure but there was only 1 way to find out. I have only had it on there for a day so far and I did have to flatten some back down around the oil cap, but that's because it's stretched pretty hard. I cut slits in it to make it fold around the curve better and so far no problems.

I found a few suppliers online. I have asked them to send me some samples to try to find the best match for RJT. I have also heard that you could go to a sign store and they will help you out. I live in BFE Mississippi so that was not an option for me.

well you need to decide if you want a lot of contrast in the stipes, or have them more subtle....
