Customer Gives His Camry A White Carbon Fiber Hood

One of our customers was one of the very first in the country that we’ve seen to use 3M’s carbon fiber vinyl in white.  He wrapped the hood on his Toyota Camry:

As you can see, the pattern is almost barely visible, but it’s there.

Our customer best described this as:

  1. Standing 15-20 ft away it looks like a matte white
  2. 5-10 ft away you start to see a pattern
  3. When you’re close, you want to touch it, and yes, you can feel the carbon fiber pattern

Note that in some of the shots the camera makes it look off-white, but in actuality it is white.

Also please keep in mind that white is one of the colors that does not have the same guaranteed durability testing from 3M that the darker colors have.  While we haven’t seen issues, the material may not lost as long in outdoor environments.  If your car is mostly garage kept or a show car, we don’t expect many issues.

To get a better idea of how each colors looks, especially when reflecting light, watch the below video we made showing all of the colors (does not include CA-421GN or CA-5429):

Even though some of the colors actually cost us more money, we’re price matching all colors to our current pricing.  You’ll find that no matter what color you purchase, it’s all the same price!

Please note that the CA-419, CA-419, and CA-422, CA-1170, and CA-5429 (silver/white/light pewter/gloss black/semi-gloss red) don’t have the same outdoor durability testing from 3M as the other darker colors, and don’t have the same expected outdoor durability of 4 years.  With that in mind, we haven’t heard any issues from customers yet, and for applications like show cars or garaged cars where they won’t be under the sun too much we don’t expect many issues.  In fact in a recent trip to London we saw this Porsche Cayenne outside of Harrod’s with white 3M carbon fiber DI-NOC…looked amazing!

It’s barely noticeable from further away, but up close you can see the carbon fiber pattern.  I really love that subtle look.

White Porsche Cayman Gets The DI-NOC Treatment

We happened to come across this gorgeous white Porsche Cayman that had a few things wrapped in 3M DI-NOC carbon fiber vinyl.  Check out the final product:

We can see that the roof and rear spoiler were wrapped, and if you look at the rest of the pics you’ll see the front lip was done as well.  It looks very classy, we love how the white and carbon look offset each other.  Now he needs some black wheels!
