Cool Carbon fiber pillar posts; 2005 PT Touring.

I got tired of looking at the scratched up and faded out pillar posts on my 2005 Touring. I looked around for options but all I could find were really expensive chrome overlays that weren't giving me the look I wanted.

I then came across these pre-cut overlays in Di-noc carbon fiber from CF COVERS on eBay.

WOW!!! What a difference. Super sharp look. Great price. Super easy to install; about 15 minutes. You should check them out if you are looking for an inexpensive upgrade to the look of your PT.

I'll post some pictures shortly.

A $.02 tutorial:

First, the pictures have to be someplace on the Internet, not from your home computer. What you want to do is open a photo account on one of the many picture hosting sites, like Photobucket (Chromenut hates that site).

Once the pictures are on a site, it will have an IMG code attached to that picture that looks like this. [IMG] http://img xxxxxxxxxxxxx {/IMG}

This line of code can then be copied from the picture hosting site and brought over to the forum for inserting into your reply.
