Hey Man,

I'm here in LA. Interested in wrapping my 09 335i roof with gloss black? It seems that you do good work. What would charge?

Wow. I wonder if I wrapped my car before increasing my daily driving from 8 mins to 30 mins if I could have prevented some rock chips.

I would recommend you at least get a clear bra put on to prevent rocks from damaging the front bumper, hood and mirrors. I would post pics of the clear bra cars I have done but you would think nothing has been done on it.

Thanks for the compliment

Most of the stuff I use is either 3M, Hexis or Avery but it really depends on how much the customer wants to spend. I also have a couple rolls that are slightly cheaper in quality but those I mainly use on lower end cars or even on my own car to keep practicing and perfecting my skills.

Thanks for the interior wrap, Gilbert. Very happy to be rid of the coffin trim. You did a great job and were a pleasure to deal with.
