Wrapped a couple more things today and got some pics of them in car,
I have had a couple of goes at the cluster surround with 1 big piece,
but i keep stretching the vinyl and putting holes in it, might try 2 pieces and just layer them over one another.

Whoops, my bad They reminded me of the 2011 Mazda 3 MPS rims

How long did the trim pieces take you to wrap? And also how did you take the A-pillar off?

Stereo shroud 1.2 Hours since I hadn't done it before, Round the gear stick and cup holder lid bout half hour (take out, wrap, put back in,) A pillars took 30 seconds to take out (open door, peel off rubber seal from A pillar area, can use fingers to pull off so start from top and work way down, once down bottom just pull it up and out it comes) and about 20 mins each to wrap.

Not bad man, and I normally don't go for carbon fibre. You've done well keeping the 'weave' going in the same direction on all the parts.

Front sway bar is a massive pita to swap...
Rear sway bar most definitely DO IT!
Go buy a front strut brace and rear strut brace over the front sway bar tbh.
And/or do the bushes.

And to CF wrap the bonnett V you will put a slight thin score through your paint, as the wrap has to be cut on the car.
