Can you use vinyl to wrap the cheap ls door panels? If the wrap is thick, I could see if looking great even with all the tiny bumps.

We've wrapped panels for customers @ Night Shades.
You DO have to sand smooth the panels or they will show thru.

Any pics of the part around the shifter?

I purchased some material from Nightshade, I haven't had time to play with it yet.

Looks good!!! Ive wrapped a lot in cf on my ride both inside and out. I prefer the black on black of the wrap vs hydrodip. Looks good OP!
