    Finally pulled the trigger in the Land Rover carbon fiber bits. Planning on the grill / tail trim next. Finish is amazing.. did notice one dull spot on one of the songs but it’s hardly noticeable. Have some Vorsteiner 22” 107s coming in next week.
  3. Sanding the 2018 SVR Carbon Hood?!

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Is it possible to sand down the carbon SVR hood to have it exposed like the factory exposed ones? I was talking to 1016 industries about possibly buying a carbon hood, or an OEM one, and they said this is possible? Can anyone vouch for this? Thanks

    Hi all, Does anyone know if the carbon fiber/fibre interior components for the RRS as per the SVR will be sold separately by JLR? I really love the look. Are there any after market options available as well? I know Mansory are doing it but they're asking for the original parts first. Cheers.

  15. 3D Carbon Fiber Di-NOC

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Converted my wood trim to 3D Carbon Fiber. I really liked the textile version of the Carbon Fiber as opposed the hard polished lacquered version. I think it adds texture and modernness. I chose to go with the Di-NOC from 3M because the reviews on it being of higher durability and quality. It...
