Fixing it! It was so hard doing it and just lost all my patience on it, but should be pretty easy this time around. Will post updated pics of Black Sharkfin, white gas tank and handles!

yup only one piece. Most trouble I had was on the rear bumper. All the curves and lines were just too much to deal with becuase it changes direction of the vinyl.

Ya the plasti dip didn't peel off how I wanted it too and the texture was really rough. It was way too windy that day.

A+ that's a lot of work. lots of bonding time with your car.

I totally feel you on that. You take more pride in your car knowing that you're the one who works on it. And just that feeling off "I did that myself."
