I have a black & red theme going on with my case with the MB tray done in carbon fiber and now I'm going with a carbon fiber color pre sleeved cable adapters, Mod/Smart Kobra. I have the modright cables in black now but I think they are too shinny.

I have to agree. At least when it comes to cars, why fake the funk when the whole idea is to save weight, add rigidity and lower temps. Looks should come second for cars. I think for PCs, CF wrap is fine since weight loss isnt a priority.

Nice write up on CF wrapping.

Below are a couple picts of a car we had wrapped last year for a time trial called the Texas Mile, and weight reduction was not considered, since actually need to add some weight for stability at 230+mph. The wrap is easily repaired compared to repainting on the different pieces. There is a lot of gravel on the runway.
Done with two colors of the 3M CF wrap and just over 2 days to totally wrap her.
Don't mind the black tape for filling body gaps for the runs.

post #26 of 373
I have several devices I would like to wrap with this, including
The accents on 2 keyboards (sigrig and HTPC)
2 mice (again, sigrig and HTPC)
and my dad would like me to do the silver bits on his Fujitsu Amilo D1845 (basically, the lid, around the screen bezel, and the touchpad area)
Thanks for the guide, I'll have to get quite a bit of Dinoc now.

My friend made this:

Finished product. I think it almost looks better in bare carbon.

Hey bro, how do you cut so perfectly nice? You measure first? I'm very interested in CF now!

It has pre applied adhesive on the back, heat aids it's flexing properties.

Some components like case panels and PSUs (squares and rectangles) I measure first and then cut to size. Other components with more complicated shapes like video cards I measure out more than enough, apply the wrap, and carve off edges and holes using a high quality sharp exacto knife
