Carbon Dash Panel Decal on Ebay

I got this carbon dash panel decal from ebay to try spruce up the radio panel on my 09 Premium without spending a fortune. Very happy with the outcome considering the comparitive cost of a real carbon fibre cover (the decal is about 1/20th of the price).

NISSAN R35 GTR CARBON DASH PANEL DECAL 3M DI-NOC | eBay

Its from a UK source and I assume they are using a laser cutter to cut a sheet of normal 3M CF look vinyl. The sizing and spacing is spot-on.

It actually comes out a bit better looking than the photo they have on eBay, but I don't think I can post photo's yet on here.

It was easy enough to apply - not too fiddley and easy to reposition to get it just right before sticking down. Took about 5 minutes.

Thanks matey I suppose at that price its a no-brainer. One thing I'm worried about is some low quality product leaving sticky residue on the panel or worse scratching it...

mine arrived today, just installed it.. sorry about the dark pictures the sun was setting quick!

arrived in a nice cardboard package, 3M branding to the rear



quick wipe with the supplied alcohol-wipes, i'd recommend using them on your fingertips too



matte finish with a satin sheen (usual 3M dinoc)





Be patient and take your time installing it, I found lining up the 6 buttons first worked better for me. You can take it on and off though so dont worry, just don't smooth it down till you are 100% sure





Only complaint is that it doesnt quite reach flush to the edges but overall for £18 I'm very pleased!

Makes a huge difference for £18 I shall order two as certain I will screw the first one up! Wonder if they will do the lower panel (DVD player area) also as that would make me very happy. I shall email them shortly to ascertain.

Looks good for the money. I bought one from RSw in Japan. Its a nice finish. But the holes around the controls are a little too small so you can tell its aftermarket. Plus it was 150 quid. So the stickers look a great option.

The steering wheel cover came from EPFibre in Japan also. This has a great fitment, and good. You dont need to take the air bag out or wheel off. Its clips over.
