Guide to Carbon Fiber Wrap & Gallery - Page 22

post #211 of 373
I ordered a full roll of carbon vinyl wrap.
1.5m x 30m
Yeah overkill i know :-P

Used it to cover my computer desk. Looks pretty amazing. Started just with the top but decided it looked so good that i did the entire thing.





Pics of just the top. Never got around to taking pics of the whole thing.

Also have done a phone case and a small table top.
Have about 24m+ left of the wrap. Lol

WOW!! That looks absolutely excellent! I presume that's the 3M right? I didn't know that it would look so good in larger applications... I do think the black has a cleaner look than any other colors do. Great job again bud.thumb.gifthumb.gif

WOW!!! You're excellent at trimming that off perfectly, which except for the design angle, is the most important part of it as far as I'm concerned. Great work !! thumb.gif

Thanks!
I have to be honest and say that I was surprised how it all turned out since this is my first time ever doing anything with CF.
I use this for both cutting to size and trimming:



What I thought of doing next is making a PSU cover and wrapping it in CF, and also wrapping some exterior details/parts of my case (I have a HAF 922). Would that be too much?
I will not be doing the motherboard tray or any interior parts of the case, though.

Surprised too, as my knife is like a fourth smaller and therefore, will turn much quicker than thicker knives.

Maybe it's the angle; my blade is <45 degrees "away" from the surface I'm trimming. It's a regular scalpel, I just put a new blade in it.

The one that I now use is technically a "exacto" knife I reckon, after trying a plain blade for my utility knife, then tried a knufe like yours--lol and ruined several pieces of carbon in the learning process== then bought this knife which is tiny but works very well. Would work better if I was better dexterity-wise though... I'll have some more pics after finishing my build too to post as I am still trimming out the color-offset designs and am not sure where I'm putting UV glass, red grille material, and the red and black carbon. I did get the window-sided panel completed finally tho, added UV red glass where the grille and 200mm fan used to be, drk-red non UV glass, and black carbon... Still not sure if I'm happy with the look or not, until seeing it on the unit with the UV and red lighting on...?? Can always change it right???


I also went ahead and red carbon'd the sides of the front bezel too, after eyeing it until I decided whether to go red or black... Left the top "u" section that surrounds the hot-swap black though, and may black carbon that or just leave it stock black plastic...??...!!
