Do it! Call him an "puddle of oil" or "oil spill"
I know the perfect thing, ima get water or something and spill it under his hood and leave a note saying "Marvin was here. You don't need an oil change anymore." cause I know he's going to Firestone tomorrow to get one...

It's super sticky as it is, so no need for glue really. Just place the trim on the slab of vinyl, make a cutout leaving room on every side.

I bought 4x5 I think? You have to make sure you get the longer side (5ft) with the grains horizontally though; it costs more, but it just looks proper.

And might I add I had absolutely zero experience doing this. Buy enough vinyl, maybe a little bit more than I said. You will make mistakes, but you'll learn as you go.
Nice, just what I wanted to hear and i'm going to wrap mines in a solid color so I don't have to worry about which way I need to stick it i'm more of a DIY person anyways.

Thanks for info bro!

Anyone give me a quick reference if the high and low headlight bulbs on halogen are the same? My one high beam is out, may be time to change all of them to all white.
