So i got my bonnet wrapped over the weekend, its Deep Bronze so i thought i'd share it on here as you dont see many DBP CTR's.





I like the fact that it doesnt stand out too much, love the look of it when its close up.

I got about 1 year left now untill i can buy a proper one (when im 25).

Overall im happy with it, just some small issues with it but im hoping i can just look past them for a year!

Opinions welcome.. :)

There really is no need for an apology there.

It wouldnt be good if we all liked and disliked the same things, so its nice to get a different view on things :D

It cost me £80, it was done by Owls from the forums. Was planning on having Mirrors done but it kind of fell through due to time.

Like i said, some minor issues with it, not really owls fault. I seem to have a light spot on the left side (right side when looking at the car) down the strip where the bonet lifts up(Can only see it on the further away photo). Cant seem to get rid of it with anything either :(. Also seems to be cut slightly too short near the back of the bonet so i'm going to have to get something to stick it down with so it doesnt make it onto the surface.

Overall im impressed with the image and it has tempted me to buy a proper one when i'm allowed to (lol, insurance companies)

I sense a grudge agesnt carbon wrap?

So your saying that if imitation and "REAL" looked the same that only the real one would look good? Makes no sense That the 'real thing' is the only way something looks good because a lot of imitations out there looks just as good.

Lets face it, we all prefer the real thing, but due to many reasons(and mine is my age for insurance) we all have to accept 2nd best for some things in life!

Not a grudge, just I had my mirror caps, Perspex grill, and eyelids carbon wrapped a while ago. Bought actual Carbon bonnet, grill, and Type R spoiler and the difference is night and day. But what is funny is that I had the wrap bug about a year and a half ago and got lots of negative feedback and now a lot of people are doing it. ;)

I have 2 issues with the wrap, here;



And



I love the image, but after a few days i started to look more carefully and these 2 problems are putting me off the wrap.

Im not sure if i should pull it off and get it re-done, live with the issues or remove it and leave it.

I can see how that would be annoying. Personally i cant wait till i can get a real one!

I think i may just get out of the wrap idea, 1st part wrapped and disapointed already lol.

Alright thanks a lot for your feedback! Which brand did you use? On the second photo the issue is the bubbles or the shiny part?
