I'm wrapping some parts of the interior of my Talon with black Suede.
So far I wrapped the B pillar and that was fairly easy, nice and flat with minimal curves.
Now I'm attempting to wrap my triple pillar pod, this isn't going so well, it's got lots tricky curves. I first started wrapping from the middle twice and failed tried wrapping from the top down with a bit more success but still some wrinkles.
I'm looking for any tips for getting this wrapped. I'm thinking work a bit at a time, spray some glue, lay it down and move on to the next part.
Help!

So flocking might be my only option?
Will flocking look like suede?

Agreed. If you have too many surface changes or curves you'll usually need to stitch. I.e.

Hard to see but I had to make seams and stitch this in a FEW places. Lol
As far as flocking its relative to the material and how stretchy it is. If it doesn't stretch much you may still have a hard time. As far as appearance. There are microfiber suedes out there that don't look bad but I haven't seen anything that really looks like suede that still stretches ti have a seamless wrap..
Goid Luck.

they do make suede headliner material that might stretch a little more than regular suede.

Thanks guys.
I ordered up a flocking kit so I'm going to give that a try. From the research I did it looks like it should match the rest of my suede wrapped pieces.
Now I just need to remove the spray glue from my pillar pod.
