I removed them from the car. Then used matte black vinyl and wrapped them, putting the seam on the inner flat part of the handle (side that faces in towards the car) so you cant see it.

My favorite color EVER!

I don't like the trunk you've put on the car... but with FROZEN no matter how awful that trunk is the car can't be ruined...


how much did that cost you?

The wrap I did myself. I charge $1500 for the e90. The mods total are around $10k.

Wow! The wrap looks awesome. Can the vinyl be clear coated to make it last longer? My car is a DD so it gets driven and washed often. I would be worried about longevity but a balloon white e92 sounds like a great idea.

Vinyl lasts about 10 years even with daily driving. Id be more worried about the mileage at that point than the vinyl. Let me know if you have any other questions, balloon white can definitely be done!

Vinyl is already UV resistant; it's rated for outdoor use. The high end vinyl is rated for 8-10 years, but in reality more like 5-6. But regular car paint fades as well. You're more likely to have it peel up from dirt than actually have it fade or crack.

How did you wrap the trunk so perfectly? I was thinking about wrapping my csl trunk so that unly one edge of the carbon fiber is showing.

Not sure how the OP did it, but they make knifeless tape that you can use. Basically just use the tape the draw the line. Lay the vinyl over everything you plan to cover and then pull the filament from the tape. It leaves a clean edge. I've used it to wrap the lower edge of my bumper like a diffusor (until I get a new bumper). The other option is a razor blade, but knifeless tape is safer and better.

shadow191 is correct. I used knifeless tape and it came out amazing, really recommend the stuff. You can look it up on youtube. I bought it from auto vinyl solutions in San Antonio alongside my roll of hexis vinyl.

Prevents cuts on the body which is top priority for most.
