I suppose those are vinyl wraps on the DA shifters? I've been playing with the idea of doing something similar. Was it easy and did you remove the lever?
Gonna try it first on my 105's and source some 7800 DA's in the mean time.

Best place I've found for it (yes, carbon fiber vinyl wrapping tape).
It was super easy to do and I did it without taking off the levers.
Next time though, I'd take them off.
What helped a lot was having a hot air gun and an Exacto Knife with a fresh blade.
I used alcohol to clean and decontaminate the shifters then used the hot air gun
very lightly to dry them and to warm the shifters up a bit. It takes patience and there
are areas I could've done a better job of trimming, but there was a learning curve.
But damn they look good. Much better than the shifters alone.
I'm going to do the front derailleur next and then I'll add some to the rear derailleur
to tone down the silver some, but I'm not going to for complete coverage; just some.
I'm gonna have my fork (2009 slice) wrapped and hopefully they have enough leftovers to do the shifters in the same black gloss (twice if it works on the 105's).
That enigma sticker is quite a nice touch too. really personalizes it. You just need a hollowgram with some green bolts to match
Never replied to your thread but that is one sweet machine! Very agressive position and I love the traditional WCS.
