Does it look as convincing as the Carbon? I would like to use it for interior trim.

I can special order it. I've never personally used it before, since it's not a common finish people request/ask for.

It does not look as good as the black cf vinyl, since it doesn't have that 3D look, because it is a lighter finish.

Do you guys have any specific or general questions about anything? Or if you guys want me to take pictures of the cars that I do at certain angles or specific places/parts, let me know.

More of the white 350z with the vinyl wrapped gloss black roof:

Got some new pictures that I haven't posted up, that I'll do later today or tomorrow.

Let me know if you guys want any specific pictures/angles for me to take, before/after/etc of the vinyl on the cars, and I'll see what I can do for you.

Also, feel free to post any thoughts or feedback you might have. Always looking for new ideas to do and try out

Hey, I am about to get my roof wrapped and a small section of my grille in gloss black. Is it possible for you to PM me an avg price to expect (or one you would charge) so I don't get ripped off like I did getting charged $275 only to install my x-pipe...

If you could break it down into roof wrap gloss black in a c300. And then to wrap the 6 slotted areas on our star grilles (behind the chrome) that are about 1ft wide and 4" deep each.


Great pics, any way you can take a picture of a car from not-so close up?

Don where are you located exactly? I know you said you're off the 5 and Culver, but there's only one plaza there and a bunch of homes. Are you an "at home" business? I was gonna drop by today for you to give me a quote on a grille wrap cuz you said you needed to see what you'd be working with.

If you're just dropping off parts, you can come by where I live to drop it off. If you're getting a bigger job done, IE tails/roofs/etc, then I do it at Hyevon Motors.

1. why not match thread pattern direction of the roof spoiler?

2. why not use gloss to match the roof spoiler?

you do great work, but this one does not work for me.

1. The vinyl is only so wide, so it needs to be applied a specific/certain direction/way and the roof spoiler is real cf.

2. The roof spoiler is real cf.

Had someone request me post some pictures of blacked out window trim and misc chrome parts.

I did the window trim on this C63, along with his chrome trunk lid handle and the top half of his side mirror blinkers.

Before:





After:

Been having quite a few people ask me about interior wrappings, so here's some pictures so you guys can all see, versus me PMing people the same pictures over and over again.

Here's pictures of an E92 335's interior that I wrapped in the 3M carbon fiber di-noc vinyl material:

Did you remove the trim before wrapping or did you do it in-place? Just wondering how well the wrap would hold considering the small widths/areas vs larger sections like roofs, etc.

Did something different and new. Wrapped the tails of a C63 in gloss black around the border/outline of the tail lights in vinyl.

Stock tail lights:

It wasn't easy, but I definitely welcome new ideas from you guys to do/try out, like the owner of that C63 who asked me if I could do his tails in that style
