    Right previously I sprayed my B pillars on my car as had a few scrapes and looked tatty which was ok but as had some carbon vinyl left from the bonnet I decided to do the pillars also and thought would share with you incase you have the same issue and might want to do them in black.

    This is how they were initially before I sprayed them.

    This is after the rattle can job which wasn't bad but decided the carbon wrap would look better.
    I made sure was all nice and clean then prepared the vinyl and tools required which consisted of a brand new Stanley blade, some tape, a clothe and a card to push into tight gaps.

    I lined up the offcut so would cover all in one piece and taped into position.

    I pulled the backing paper off on the opposite side I had taped it down and pulled it tort and started to attach it using a soft clothe.

    I pulled all the backing paper off holding the vinyl away and carefully worked my way up with the clothe making sure to leave no air bubbles or creases.

    Once all attached I made sure I worked it into all edges ready for trimming.

    Once all edges have been trimmed and have cut down the middle you can tuck the excess round the back of the door.
