Di-noc is amazing stuff and it conforms to corners/edges like nothing else. I've never seen the wood application but they make a carbon fiber variant that looks spot on. The adhesive qualities are wild, you have to scrape/heat it off.
The result is really impressive.
I must also admit that i didn't notice it isnt real wood,
actually thats the best imitation i've ever seen.
But these need to be tested under sun for some before it becomes
our ultimate cracked/faded wood solution..
I've been doing some research on Di-noc... surprisingly affordable. Were you able to do it with just one of the standard 48x12 inch sheets? Someone needs to cover their entire dash with the stuff. I wrote that as a joke, but visualizing it, I could see it looking badass... or absolutely ridiculous. Most likely the latter.
Looks like great stuff! The wood in my car is peeling, and the wood surrounding the HVAC controls is getting badly warped, but I'd hate to do anything to ruin the German label-sticker under the HVAC controls. For me thats a project to wait till last.
Actually, it looks even better in real life. I used a standard 48x12 sheet and have a little bit left over. You have to make sure that the surface is smooth or it will show. Also, you will need a heat gun (or a very powerful hair dryer). The application itself is very simple. I hope it holds up as long as it is supposed to.
I like the mat finish. I've often thought that a ebony stain would look nice with my light gray interior and black pearl exterior. Have a little cracking on my gear console but not bad and no hurry to decide. Thanks for the information!
I was going to go this route but decided to try real veneer instead and see how it turns out. I bought some vinyl to experiment with but ended up being the wrong color and was to glossy although the shifter wood did turn out good it did not match anything else and as mentioned above the surface needs to be very clean and free from any dirt and debris or it will show.
