Thanks guys. Just so you guys are aware too, the vinyl wraps never look that good right after a fresh install. It's similar to paint. It needs a couple of good days in the sun to cure and form to the roof. Similar to window tint.

I am off of the 5 and Culver in Irvine. I also sometimes do work at Serge's shop (Hyevon Motorsports), in Huntington Beach.

Grills are really not something I like wrapping, but I can if you want. You'd also need to remove them beforehand, and give it to me overnight to do them.

Still waiting on pricing and what brand clear bra :p

Also, how much to remove clear bra pieces? I want to remove the precut half fender pieces on my MB as I hate the line.

I was telling Willie, for $500, you can pay for my round trip and the vinyl install for probably less

This is how it's done properly. None of that precut nonsense

Come by and get your tails tinted in under an hour from start to finish, versus having to leave your car for a day or more at a shop to get it painted, haha.

I have the same material that I can sell to you if you wanted to try and wrap your interior with it.

It's very hard to use to conform to curves, which is why I do not offer installation services for that specific material.

I would definitely be in for a group buy of Don's services!

I can't help but notice that some of the Carbon Fiber jobs looks like a different type of CF was used... Is that just that camera, or indeed are they a different type of CF?

Also, in your experience, how well do these hold up on the roof? Need replacement after a year or so? Wash like normal car or special treatment? Wax? Sorry for all the questions, haha.

It's all the same. It'll hold up just fine. Regular car washes, no wax needed for the CF.

Gloss black (Don't mind the blue tape, he just recently had those pieces painted and he had to take a road trip to get to where I was to get vinyl work done):

How about a full s2k wrapped in the 3M CF material?

Tested the curves etc a bit with some matte black first. Just did the one driver side fender and hood:















Once I got a feel for it, I went ahead and did the full CF treatment on the car. Probably one of the first cars on the east coast to have this fully done (this car was done a long time ago, but the owner's been constantly building it, so it hasn't even seen the roads yet after being fully wrapped):





















So what do you guys think? Who will you be bringing your cars to get wrapped now

It's designed to be used outside, so it'll hold up just fine.

Car washes are fine too. I don't know how else you would clean it.

I thought I replied to your PM already, or did you not send me one yet?

Hey Don. I have a quick question/request. Would it be a challenge for you to wrap a FRP Carlsson front lip with CF fabric? A friend got me the lip but I want to go for the CF look so I was wondering if it would be possible to do so. Hope to hear back.

It'd be doable, but it'd have to be done in two pieces. The material is only 4' wide.
