Wrapped my center console awhile ago in Di-Noc. Since then I have added the Subtle hazard knob and center knob overlays to further black-out my console. I don't have any hi-res pics of that yet but I will soon:)

Nice work on the Foz. More of the console!
I will try and get some better close-up pics tomorrow. Anything in particular that you wanna see? I've since added the Subtle blackout kit for 3 climate control knobs and hazard button..

Looks great so far, can't wait to see the finished product after the vinyl wrap is done.
Some more progress:

I'm basically teaching myself as I go along with this car so it's taking waaay longer than I would have liked. That and I work essentially two full time jobs, one of them being at a detail shop so I'm always wiped and don't want to lay vinyl when I'm not fresh.

Alright finally got the BC BRs installed and borrowed a buddys Rotas (mine are the exact same tho) as they weren't back from the powdercoater in time for install.







Anyone recognize the Fozzy in the background??

Got the Whiteline roll center kit and alk installed on Sat - just waiting on a professional alignment and quarter-balancing on Tuesday now. Feels like a gokart already and I can't wait for it to get dialed in!

If I paypaled you a couple bucks could you send me a scrap of that?

Looks awesome! I had a 08 FSXT wrapped matte black before I got the STI... That silver looks interesting.

Actually your car in that black wrap was the main reason I wanted to try something new... Didn't wanna be late to the party haha. PM me your info and I will see what I have laying around.
