Finally pulled the trigger to fix it.

I been procasinating to fix my peeled side door panel.. After I replaced the rear brake pads (hps) I decided to buy some dupli-color paint (carbon fiber kit)
This are the result.






Notice there's a square bump below the side mirror control its the sign I peel it off later.

I plastidipped mine first but it eventually got nicked and spotty. I had some blue slate paint left over from painting my grill and spoiler so I used that to paint them.

You didnt need a special template, Painters have been using kitchen cabinet lining for years to mimic CF pattern. You just do a black base coat, let it dry, lay on the cabinet liner and do a coat of a gunmetal, done.
