Shadow Line trim in Richmond $170 - Review

I just wanted to give everyone here a quick heads up. I had my window trim wrapped today by Rich from Richmond. True story.

He does automotive vinyl wraps for cars. He's really well known in the area and has done vinyl work on tons of BMW's in the tri-state.

For those that don't know, this guy does some of the best work out there for prices that beat everyone else by a long shot due to the fact he is mobile. The attention to detail that was given to my trim was just staggering. It took 4 hours and was done in 1 peice, which is what I really wanted. Every little imperfection was taken care of with true professionalism.

Rich's # is 804 426 7872

P.S. I am no way being compensated for this. This is a free promotion of a great service at a great price.

The labor for the work runs around $150 probably a little more. Even with vinyl it's half of what the shop down the street from his house wants.

Bump for a great guy. Thanks to Rich! I get a lot of looks from other e9x guys and gals.

Rich did my mirror caps and my trim. Finally got a great sunny day and clean car to take pictures of my car after Rich's work on it.

Damn, good looking work.

I'm in NoVa, how far do I go to meet you and how much would it be for an E90 trim wrap? Might be able to talk a buddy of mine into getting his E90 done as well. PM me if you'd like.

It's a labor of love and requires a clean environment and a power source. If someone has a garage here in the area it can be done. This can't really be done on a parking lot.

Yes this is correct, a decent garage will do.

Rich, you ever in Va Beach? I have some gloss black vinyl that I haven't had the opportunity to get on the car (window trim).

I would like to get this done as well. But if we do a "trim wrap meet" in NoVa, you would only be able to get 2 cars done in 1 day right? Assuming it take's 4 hours per car?

4 hours includes about 30 minutes of breaks. He could probably knock out 4 cars in a day if he gets a pace going, 3 should be easy because there are 14 hours of daylight in a day.

Looking at the weather it's going to be pretty bad the next two weeks but this coming Satuday looks nice. Why don't we set up a trim wrap meet for Saturday the 21st? Let's say 3 cars from 8 am to 8 pm.

You just need a host with a garage and to schedule everyone. I already texted him right now and he's willing to do 3 cars, I'm going to pass this post around in PM
