Suggestions as to how to add "custom" interior trimming

I am experimenting with vinyl wrap and am looking in ideas as to how to add extra detail to the stock interior car trimming. In particular how to add some raised borders to areas such as what I have now:

My idea is to add something around the inner rectangle. Perhaps create the extra trimming then wrap it then install it somehow, perhaps with little screws or very strong glue.

I am open to any ideas.


PS: Maybe ideas as to how to add extra details to something like the following as well:

Thanks again

Stuff looks really good man. I did this in my old car. Lincoln LS V8 and yea you can customize akmost anuthing just takes a way kong time and a tiny xacto blade is what I used and another really good thing is a heatgun. Really helps it lay down the wrap.won't last long on the exterior mine only lasted one summer

i actually did the same thing as you with the fiber wrap. i did the whole entire dash *all plastic*, air vents, fuse panel clip, e brake, and the button you push in to switch gears. i went over to pep boys and bought black plasti dip, and i "dipped" my door handles on the inside, rearview mirrors on the outside, all emblems and letters, and my hubcaps (cant afford rims atm). another cool thing you could do is add led lights into the footwells. you can wire it to a switch so its not always on constantly. you can also add led lights by replacing the bulbs with a little wedge type light thing.

im still working on more ideas for the inside but im trying not to rice it up too bad. hope this helped you.
