Default I wanted to change the looks of my Vette...

and this is what I came up with. I don´t know your correct term, in Germany it´s called "water transfer printing". There´s a guy (Mr. Magicpaint) who´s excellent with this kinda stuff.
OK, here we go; I wanted a not-too-flashy look inside, an extension of my black/sienna interior under the hood and a carbon-look rear spoiler & diffusor, and this is what I got:
All interior parts disassembled:
Click the image to open in full size.

After treatment (yes, even the paddles have been foiled):
Click the image to open in full size.

Under the hood:
Click the image to open in full size.

Interior reassembled (climate control overlay still missing):
Click the image to open in full size.

CCO in (bad pic quality):
Click the image to open in full size.

Overall (IMHO a perfect interior/engine match):
Click the image to open in full size.

Rear difffusor:
Click the image to open in full size.

I know, to each his own - but I like it and I´m really happy with the result!

Looks good!!

TKO did mine. Has been 5 yrs and still looks like new. Much easier to clean than the stock finish.

Very nice, and in the US it is referred to most of the time as Hyrdocarbon.

Actually both, yes; first you paint, then you add the foil in a waterbath,remove the carrier foil, then you determine the shining by the number of clear coats applied (mine got 4).
Glad you guys like it!
