It's going to be interesting to see how it goes - I've never wrapped a car before, only interior. Is it similar in difficulty to doing interior, just on a larger scale and more time consuming?


Also, very excited to see the new updates.
sorry man.. didn't even plan it.. saw the vinly for cheap so I had to pull the trigger. im also pretty sure someone already wrapped there car satin white on here.

exterior wrapping is more difficult cause there are more curve and you have to fight the wind and dust and sun beaming down unless u have a garage which will make things a lot easier.

just make sure u clay the car before u wrap, or else every spec of dirt will show. it also help if you have a person helping. Like holding the blowdryer while u stretch around curves. After a couple panels you will get the hang of it. good luck.

yea I love the color.

damn.. this was the hardest time I've ever had taking apart a headlight. alost melted the whole thing and the glue did even budge. took me a good 40 min to take apart. Luckily I didn't break anything.

all I need now is to hook up some led and I ready for the other side.

I'm so confused what's going on with this car but I love it..

Edit:

Just finished going through all 50 pages and WOW! I'm impressed to say the least. Can't wait to see the F30 headlights. But I have a question regarding the halos you made. I saw somewhere you said you soldered then in series then in parallel? Did you use a LED tape light or what? Because it looked like you had individual LED's..how did you connect them together then do the wiring?

i sodier each led individually in pararell. so each led will be getting 3.2 volts. when i first started i did 3 in series, then wired those in parrelle. That was too time consuming so a member on here said i should just do it all in parelle and have a led driver to power the who thing.
