My shop even tried to wrap it, but the wrap wouldn't stick. Any suggestions on how I could address this? I bought an extra OEM set of blades for the front and back doors, so I'd like to experiment to see what might work. Please let me know whenever you get a chance- thanks!

Hi thank you mate, finally getting there. Interior and engine bay are about to be completed, very few pieces left. Like I have said before they will not match, I tried it before and had the same problem therefore I had to carbon skin them. I know that it looks so nice on dash you want to match but it won't work as far as I know. Couple of other people tried including me. Your best change like I have said before is to go carbon skinning route and switch back to your leather door handles to not to have over carbon.
