Haven't seen C7 label covers available yet on any website. Any suggested alternatives?

Also noticed a couple of small scratches on the sill plate and the black vinyl/plastic composite material as feet exit the car. Any suggestions on protecting those areas? Would Paint Defender work on the sill plates? How about a clear protective tape product?

See my build thread for protection on both
Ok, Xpel on the door sills. I'm going to do that on the bumper and will ask about the sills when I'm finally there.

Noticed you have kick plates in carbon fiber color. Based on your photos, it appears that you have black door panels. Do the kick plates match or contrast? I have Kalahari seats and black panels so I'm thinking that body color plates would be a bit much. Is the carbon fiber color close to the flat black?

Thanks.

Many have successfully done that, starting with a heat gun and SLOWLY peeling it off. However, sometimes some of the "glue/mastic" remains, requiring "Goo Gone" or equivalent to remove the residue. However, if there is residue, and if you have the IWF sueded microfiber package, using Goo Gone or similar can mess up the IWE.

Even better is Contractors Solvent. Tough I'd want to test it first on an inconspicuous area.

That's where I got mine. Only complaint: they need to be slightly larger. I have a sliver of yellow showing after I placed them. It's not a big deal, and it's not something you'd see unless you were looking for it.

Good point. You have to look real hard to see it. I didn't want the hassle of peeling the warnings off and damaging the visor cloth.

everyone should have 4 x 1 foot of 3M Di NOC under their workbench to cover things like the visor labels - cut a 6 x 3 inch (or what ever) and cover them. Use the stuff for the door sills you kick. Guaranteed after you buy some you'll find 10 uses for it.

get it here in 100 colors, matte or gloss:

3M DI-NOC Carbon Fiber Vinyl
overexposed pic so you can see it. In person, it blends fine, unless I point it out:


don't like the CF look?, then look at the std gloss or matte 1080 series stuff:

How hard is it to remove if you need to replace it?
