don't know if it is just me, but the matte black look is just not doing it for me anymore... especially the e36 shown right above. it just doesn't look good to me.

props for the hard work though. i'm sure it is a big PITA which is why companies charge an arm and a leg to do it.

it's a unique taste, the E36 was our "test" project, it was our first full car wrap!

Outstanding!!!

Fascinating...... Kuddos to you my friend...... Looks Great.....


Does this preserve the original paint overall? Will it make it dull at all?
Whats the difficulty level on removing it...?


Again, Cool setup....

Sorry i haven't been updating lately. I just got home from a personal trip.

I just noticed that i was being featured on the front page. Wish i knew sooner =)

Thanks again everyone for the great comments! It does mean alot to me!

As for a photoshoot, I will have one of my buddies who does photography on the side to take shots of the car. I have to wait til this gloomy weather subsides though, but i'll make sure he takes pictures of the front and rear bumpers so everyone can see if it's shi* or not

When removing the vinyl, like some of you said, you'd just need to clay bar it after to remove excess adhesive.

As for the cops, technically i'm not changing the color because it's still blue under the vinyl, so i wouldn't see why i'd get in trouble. I'll probably hit up the DMV and ask them =)

good work on your car man!
Oracal 631 was a piece of crap to work with, and it sure isn't meant for wrapping cars, but hey...it did the job and im contempt with it

i'm just going to remove it again anyway, so why spend so much more money =)



again, Thanks everyone!
