Project "Superman" - Matte Blue E92 Wrap Official Thread

Update on Page 5!

Hello everyone, I recently got bored of the way my car looked so I decided I should wrap it to a different color I chose to go with Matte Blue Metallic. I will be posting updates of it. I started wrapping it today and finished some parts.

What do you guys think?

PS: Don't mind the hood marks; its dirty

Yes, first time wrapping a car. I've wrapped my interior several weeks ago and it wasn't hard. It just takes time and patience.

That is a very nice job. Did you take the handles off? Also, 5x7 ft would be enough for the hood? I want to test it out on my car's hood first, going matte black.

Very nice, looks like your household is strictly BMW drivers.

I will be doing this to my car soon just need more days off. By the way how much ft did you buy and what tools did you use to cut so that it went right under the window trim on the door?

Yes, I removed the handles before applying the vinyl. I'm not sure if 5x7ft would work but I may be wrong.

Yes my family loves BMW's I bought a whole roll 60x25yd. I use tapeless knife. Basically you apply the tapeless knife first then the vinyl over it and after you pull the tapeless knife and it cuts it straight. I took off the moldings also.
