I sanded down the door panels and trimmed the excess CF off of the drivers door. I wanted to see how it looked and check for fit and this is what I got: Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1347758950.177842.jpg

ABL isn't going to happen through carbon fiber unfortunately.

No more ABL. I don't like it anyway so no big deal to me.

How'd you get the center A/C vent trim out without removing the dash?

I have a 2012 and there is a leather piece in the middle that comes out. The AC trim is connected to that.

You just let it drape down into the holes. Remember, I cut the extra cloth out with my dremel once it has hardened.

What type of bonding epoxy did you use and what type or resin?
I was thinking of doing this but with fiberglass resin and 3m adhesion spray. (first testing it on a sample.)

I used a thin epoxy resin. The same as what I use to coat the CF. If the fiberglass resin is a polyester resin, I would not reccomend it. Based on what I have read, polyester resin is more brittle than epoxy based resin and if it cracks, it "spiderwebs" out.
