Looks good mate

Once you've washed it, coat it with some Swissvax Opaque Wax. It's not the cheapest but it's very good at protecting matt finishes.

Just to let you guys know the car when through a hand car wash where the guys use a jet wash machine and none of the vinyl came off.

I was bit scared to do so, but as am going to be wrapping other people's vehicles, I had to test it on my car to see if it peels off. Done it on my car and nothing came off so good result. For example if wrapped a customers car and he took it through a jet wash and the wrap came off he wouldn't be to happy lol.

The final results i would have to say are amazing considering your are not a pro. It could have all gone very wrong, however it seems to gone very right.

Looks good but its a ten footer in my opinion.

The detail isn't good enough, but I'm very fussy with wraps I'd rather not have it done if it's not perfect.

The wrap around the door lock and whatever is sticking out by the splitters (glue?) needs doing again in my opinion.

I redone the handle 2 days ago just where the lock is.

I would never use glue if that's what your trying to say.

And the vinyl near the splitter has been sorted, it was a bit of vinyl sitting on splitter glue.

Nice spot dude

Yeah that's what I was think could of when very wrong and wasted my money and time.

Also I took the car to guy who wraps cars for a living and he thought a pro wrapped the bmw and when I told him that I did it with my mate. He said I must of wrapped many cars before. First car I have wrapped other then I wrapped the roof on my audi s4 which came out perfect.

Looks good mate, when you say you wouldnt use glue there is a special glue for this type of vinyl that you can use for deep recesses/edges etc, it comes in what looks like a perm.market pen!. Can't remember the name but its very handy. The front bumpers on these are very deep and tricky to wrap. Nice job though for a first attempt at wrapping. Colour suits it well .
