Playing with Vinyl

 

 

 

 

A long time customer of ours sent in his 599 instrument cluster surround to get some carbon fiber. However,  he wanted something different – he wanted to add a little extra color to his carbon. We laminated the cluster top and retained the stock factory carbon bottom piece from Ferrari. The customer wanted pin stripes, however, John and the customer couldn’t come up with something satisfying for either side. After playing around with some designs, we were able to get something going. Our vinyl guy added a yellow stripe to the carbon. This time, however, we did not put the vinyl underneath the clear coat.   The reason we did this is because we wanted the customer to feel out if he likes the stripes. We didn’t want to do something permanent on something he was  not sure about. If he doesn’t like the stripes, he can always just peel the vinyl off with no damage to the carbon. If he does, then we can always paint and re-clear the piece.
