I wrapped my tire valve caps in carbon fiber!


Seriously though, I wrapped my v brace with aluminum vinyl to match wheel color and I've grown fond of it so it stayed.

Did it a while ago, carbon dark blue, pretty subtle, almost goes unnoticed, can see it better in the picture because of direct bright sunlight.
