Here are the photos of the 120mm acrylic honeycomb fan grill with 3M Di-Noc Carbon Fiber Material from the guide in the video I posted earlier

I agree Perry, I've had people ask if you can clear coat the 3M carbon fiber material, So Last night I applied Automotive Enamel Gloss Clear coat over the honeycomb fan grill with the di-noc carbon fiber. Here is the results. I'm curious to see what a Matte Finish Clear would look like as well.

Richard sent me this photo of his Asus Rampage III Extreme with 3M carbon fiber material applied and It fits the theme nicely!

Great Video. However, the material you are using is NOT 3M DI Noc material - not sure why you are representing this product incorrectly. The material you are selling is 3M Scotchprint 1080 Series Black Carbon Fiber - CF12. We install both products and the backing material is entirely different. Also both product have a different look - the Di Noc is a dry carbon look with a true weave where as the scotchprint has alittle more gloss to it. Hope this helps.

I would love to do it a lot on my Samsung galaxy S, but I don't know if it will work since the Galaxy is not flat on the back :(

You should be able to heat it up and stretch it...sort of the the same thing he does with the mouse in the video.
