can you post some pics of the door jams please? how did you get the vinyl to go perfectly under the rubber sealing by the door mirror? i always seem to cut the vinyl a little short from the rubber sealing.

I removed the sealing and used tapeless knife and tucked the vinyl in. It was really easy to do

Are you using 3M vinyl? Cuz I'm pretty sure that your blue is a bit of lighter than mine.

Yep, 3M Matte Metallic Blue. Probably just the lighting in the photo.

I thought you were going to unveil your finished project under that.

Looks good so far though!

When I first DIY wrapped my car it took 3 days, 8-10 hours each day. I recommend a lot of patience and a lot of beer. Not too much beer though because then you'll be sloppy and get wrinkles on the vinyl.
