btw, how much vinyl wrap do you guys think will be enough to wrap an entire car? (rough estimate) as I'm not sure if I should do my bimmer or supra.
both sides, top, back, and front.

OP said he got 48" x 25 yards for $100

Just for a piece of 48" x 60" roughly costs around the $100'ish mark most places I've looked....


edit... found some 48" 20 yard on ebay for $350, thx anyways.

I've always wondered what if your car has an emblem on the back, such as BMW 545i for example.... you just applying the vinyl over it and carefully trim the 545i logo out?

3M vinyl

Now I must disappear again because I am swamped with work at the moment and after last winter I need all I can get. I am putting together a DIY forum and hopefully supply connections for all you so be patient I will be back as time permits.

I have been gone for a while but never late than never. I got rushed away on a lrge project and I am only back for a short while.I promised I would find the proper 3M vinyl for you guys and thanks to my friend "Sir Dolce" here it is. vc3c14613 matte black is the part number for 3M matte black. Good luck on finding it.

heres the link to the ORACAL 951 Premium Cast Vinyl 48" x 50 Yard Roll

Application Fluid

What type of application fluid did you apply?

I tried to wrap my hood w/o the fluid and it was painful to deal with...

Thanks

Awesome. My one question is how did you get the part under the door handles? Did you remove them?
