Vinyl wrap project

After months of hibernating, and the blower motor recall finally fixed, she's back on the road again. Here she is out in the wild with her brand new wrap. The final finished product! Satin chrome matte dark blue, roof and window trim wrapped gloss black.

Turned out great! You made it look easy lol, how much wrap did you order and what brand? Also how hard was it to wrap the trim gloss black?

I've been thinking of wrapping mine satin white over the winter

To be honest I ordered my wrap straight from China. I ordered a roll 5ftx68ft. Dam near everything comes from China. Most of the brands in the states are coming from China just with their label on it. IMO. I've used Avery, vivvid, and 3m. And these wraps I order from China works just as well.

Thanks man, that is what I was thinking too, was 5x68 just enough? or did you have some left over in case?

Damn man! That is incredible work! I wish I had the balls to do something like this. I’ve see some really great rap options but would definitely have to get a professional to do it. I just don’t trust myself on a project like that. Regardless, you did an amazing job and your car has incredible curb appeal congrats!

Not at the moment. I removed it. I didn't like how it was sitting anymore. So now I'm customizing my own halos.

Nice. Was curious. Thought it looked odd too.

Did you inlay the front bumper or anything, or all 1 piece?

Looks damn good, thinking about a blue color for a wrap.

I have plastic tools that I use to pop certain trims off. The roof rack trim you'll definitely need plastic tools. Pop it up slowly, kind of feel around and find the clips. Then move away from it a little and pop it up. Then it all pops up with a little tug. Not too much or you'll break the clips. Window trims I used plastic tools to pop one end up and the lift slowly. You'll end up bending the windrow trim a little but that's ok because you can shape back straight before putting back on. Let me know if I can help with anything else.

Thank you! Yes I did I lay for the front bumper. I've tried numerous of times to do it all in one piece. It's dam near impossible. And if you do. You don't over stretched it way too much. And it's not gonna stick anymore.
