I managed to get hold of some rather nice 3D carbon fibre film, which is excellent quality and thought you Team BHP folks might appreciae what can be done with a little time, some skill and a bit of inspiration!

The job on the door handles look neat. However, carbon fiber on tail-lamps look out-of-place, IMO.

Mistakenly read the title as WagonR + carbon fibre effect. Didn't expect it to be an european WagonR+

If I were to do it, I would do it on all the door handles. I see this is WagonR+; are you from Japan or else where outside India? Could you also share the model of the car? Also could you throw some more light on this carbon fibre effect? Is this a sticker or something like that? Tks.

It is a UK Wagon R+ GL 1.3 yr 2000. Thanks for the feedback, the taillights is different bbut there are a number of vehicles in the UK with aftermarket lights with a simmilar style.

aargee, I did do all the door handles looks good too, the film is 3M Di-Noc carbon fibre vinyl, i comes in 1220mm wide rolls, i bought a roll to sell on here in the UK, and unsuprisingly it did well. Its a hard wearing heat shape-able self ahdesive sheet.
I put the pics up here as Team BHP seem to be tho only people modding WagonR's!

Hope that answers some of the questions.

Any filming on the front side ?
Try sticking some film below bonnet, if possible.

Looks nice, mate! I might get some of that vinyl for myself.

How do you like driving the Wagon R+ around in old blighty? So, you live in Wirral, do you? That's just off the M53, isn't it?

I suppose its top end model since it says +, No alloys in Wagon-R+?

Indeed it is. Driving it is ok, the sidewinds on the motorway get a bit scary, lower, with wider wheels i think.

Love the idea! Dunno if i'll be able to add this onto the beige/brown interiors of the i20. But, i may still find a way around that

The website showed this picture of a comp mouse done up in di-noc vinyl, looks hot, wonder if i should do this on my laptop if i can get my hands on it!

P.S: loved the way the 'R' in WaronR was done up in the vinyl
