Customer Wraps His Entire Lexus IS350 In 3M DI-NOC

We’ve been waiting to see it, and finally a customer has wrapped an entire car with 3M’s carbon fiber DI-NOC vinyl.  Vince took his Lexus IS350 and gave it the complete treatment:\r\n\r\n

\r\n\r\nVince ended up using about 240 sq/ft of vinyl to wrap the entire car.  He thought the hardest part was doing the rear bumper, and his main advice is to just take your time.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nYou can see all of the pictures in our gallery.\r\n\r\n

    Yea I have the same question.. 48 inches isn’t wide enough to do my hood.. what do you do? I’m not splicing it and risking bubbles and not matching up..

    Unfortunately the only thing you can do is splice it…

    How much CF vinyl was purchased for this project? I am seriously considering this for my IS 250.

  • Carbon Fiber Film

    @Garry – We do mention it in the article, but it was about 240 sq/ft of material that was used for this project. If you’d like to order, please give us a call.

    I am looking to wrap my 2008 Infiniti G35 sedan in carbon white. How much sqft would i need for this job?

  • Carbon Fiber Film

    As any car, you would need to measure all of the panels you want covered and figure out how much material is needed. For reference, the IS 350 used 240 sq/ft, so it will likely be somewhere around that range.

    Omg!to each his own.great job all round,would wrap more than 1/4 of the total surface area of my car

  • omartena

    exactly how much wrap would i need for the hood of my lexus is250 just the hood\n

  • Carbonfiberhoods.com

    Looks like a lot of work. How hard is it to remove the carbon fiber film after you install it? If he peels off the film off the body parts to get rid of the carbon fiber hood , trim, carbon fiber doors etc and restores it back to stock look does it peel off the clear coat or paint?

  • Per the FAQ (http://www.carbonfiberfilm.com/faq/):\n\n”DI-NOC architectural finishes may be removable, but it is also possible that it may damage the substrate underneath. DI-NOC should generally be considered a permanent application. If Primer94 is used (which we recommend for installation), it should not be expected to be removed without substrate damage since it’s an adhesion promoter.”\n\n\n\nYou can also check out the FAQ for tips on removal.

  • You would heave to measure to be sure, but generally a hood is going to need around a 48″x60″ size.
