GB Window Trim &/or Interior trim 3M Wrap day

Hey guys

I'm just negotiating with zen garage to try and do a group buy install day to have a 3M technician to wrap either your window trim and or interior trim pieces.

At this stage its just for these items, but if you wish to go for a roof/bonnet/boot wrap I'm sure this is possible also!

I shall get some prices for you all soon, but if you're interested please let me know so I can add you to the list,

Examples of 3m wraps:

Of course you can have what ever finish you desire from 3M's range:

2. BEN0426 (window trim)

5. dpark (interior & window trim)
6. MO3 (window Wrap)
7. mrtanz (interior wrap)
8. bimmerlas(window trim)
9. TEMPTN
10. ?

OK guys we now have some prices (huge thanks to Ben for taking his car to them for a quote) unfortunately they aren't in the ball park as far as I'm concerned!

Window Trim =$250
Interior Trim =$450
Mirrors= $150
Taillights tinted= $150 per side/$300

I shall contact them and try to negotiate this price, but it looks like we may have to explore someone else to install this for us.

Interior and window trim is easy.. I did it myself and I have 35 metres of matte black, carbon fibre black and gloss black at home lol. I can probably do it for you to save you the money

Sounds good, I will see what JF comes back with in terms of price

Where are the pics?!?

I'm curious to know how the vinyl on the window trims stand up after being subjected to the weather (if it starts to fade or peel from the edges)

Awesome

Are you happy with the fit and finish (can you tell they are wrapped, with any bubbles or rough edges?)

You can only tell they are wrapped if you look closely , and only where the vinyl is joined. 2 sections on each side ( looks more like the Vinyl overlapping than a join)

Ill take a picture when im next with vehicle

Overall a very good finish , and absolutely no bubbles

Best way to do it would be to remove the trim and wrap/curve the vinyl underneath it, that way it will never lift.

This would offer piece of mind and should be the best way to do it.

Yeah that's exactly what I thought also, hence why I thought I would organise the pros!

Unfortunately you can't remove the trim... not without bending it anyway which means it'll never go back on right.

It's gotta be wrapped while on the car.

I'm curious to know how it goes long term too

Wrapping is a great value alternative to replacing it with the OEM Shadowline trim... and tbh I would probably do that myself as I'm a tightass :P BUT the only little thing that gets me is the join line and you can always tell it's wrapped.

Shit.. that sucks!

We'll i guess the work around is to make sure it's tucked in good! Still the chance of it lifting due to the size of the trim being so narrow.

not if you use the heat gun to mold the wrap around the edges. And even if it lifts again, just use the heat gun again lol
