    Default Sticky refinishing, vent graphics applied and NOT stickers or DECALs

    Greetings guys,

    I've been doing sticky refinishing in the US and I've come up with a process to apply the OEM graphics for vent arrows and such and we do this with a laser - this is NOT a sticker or decal.

    This is the very first vent as done today.

    I hope you like it.

    Thank you, Mike.

    It started off for my own needs but I have been offering this as a service since last year. I know for you guys accross the pond the shipping can be expensive but I strive to provide the best finish and service possible at reasonable prices.

    That looks excellent.

    Do you do a 348 version with the circles instead of arrows?

    Thank you, Jeff

    We certainly could do 348 as well. To do it the most perfect, we would need to obtain a factory part (can be sticky) where the OEM marks can still be seen decent enough to measure and get obtain proper placement. We could do this from a photo but it would not be as good.

    I measured mine when I did mine - the outer diameter of the circle is 5mm and the diameter of the black inner circle is 4mm so in effect the width of the circle line is 0.5mm.

    Not as elegant solution as yours but someone supplied me with some 5mm white dots and some 4mm black dots so stuck the blak dots on the wite dots to make the circle LOL

    Thanks, Jeff. We also mark the line on the adjustment dial.

    Default Ferrari 550 Sticky Vents Refinishing

    Hello Guys,

    We just did our first set of 550 vents.

    See before photo of the vent arrows and the after with our new laser marking process we developed for graphics.
    Note: This is not a decal or sticker. The original art work is optically measured so we can produce it in the exact form as OEM. Note, the OEM is a pad print or silk screen process, we laser mark.

    The chrome of the inner rings where cracked and starting to flake. We color matched the inner ring exactly to the factory color and refinished that piece as well (without the chrome)

    How much is a complete interior refinish? Can you do the center console buttons as well?
