Don, I have a question, after watching installs on YouTube I see most wraps, hood or roof are cut on the vehicle. I'm concerned that once the wrap is removed there may be a cut line in the paint from the knife or razor blade, is there a way to avoid this?

Yes, don't press the blade hard enough to go into the paint.

Had some requests to post more pictures of interiors that I've wrapped with the 3M di noc carbon fiber vinyl. Remember, I don't just do roofs, even though that's what most of my pictures are.

Feel free to let me know if you guys have any requests. I have tons of pictures that sometimes I just don't get around to posting.

Just as a public notice, since I've been getting a lot of PMs about it. 90% of mirrors are not practical to get wrapped in vinyl, due to their shape/designs. A lot of mirrors have a painted surface area that continues into the mirror portion/area, which is almost impossible to wrap the vinyl around.

Some mirrors are doable though, as I've done a few in the past, but in all of those cases, the mirrors painted surface/area did not curve around into the mirror itself, if that makes sense.

Clearing out some old pictures I have, before I move them to a different HD. First up is an E92 that I wrapped his roof with gloss black vinyl:





Second up is a 7 series that I tinted the tails and front corner lights on with some smoke tint. I thought it went very well with the color of the car.

Hey Don,

Shot you an email a few days ago but didn't hear back from you in regards to getting some work done.

Thanks

Vinyl wrapped an s2000's hood and trunk in the 3M di-noc carbon fiber material (Don't mind the oil marks from my hands, I forgot to wipe it down before taking the pictures):





















Let me know what you guys think. His trunk was fairly tricky to do.

Considering doing a GB for smoked tail light tinting. Need 5 cars, price would be roughly $50 installed.

Need 5 cars to make this happen.

Let me know if any of you guys would be interested in this, and we'll set a date/location for it all to be done.

Will be posting pictures in order that they were requested.

First up is an E55 AMG that I tinted the clear portions of the tail lights, the third brake lights, the turn signals on the mirrors and did gloss black on his roof:













Let me know what you guys think.

Posting pictures of what people requested for. I tinted the clear portion on the tails of this E60. It as a bit overcast that day, so the tint/tails appear slightly darker. However, I took the pictures to true representation as possible of the tails and the shade at that moment.











Let me know if you guys have any other requests.

Just posting up some more picture requests. Sorry if it takes a while to get to them all, since there's a lot of requests, and I go in order of the requests made. I'll eventually get to all of them.

Vinyl wrapped the roof and hood of this VW MkV GTI with the 3M di-noc carbon fiber material (did his roof 6 months prior and he finally decided to get his hood done as well):

Been having the owner of this car telling me to post pictures of his car up, so I skipped ahead and did his pictures for him first

Kind of a kill two requests in 1, as people have been asking me to take a bit more pictures at certain/various angles for them, so here you go to those who asked.

Some more pictures of the 3M Carbon Fiber Di-Noc material that I used to vinyl wrap the roof of this E46 3 series.

Tinted the tails on this C63, vinyl'd his window trim with matte black to cover up the chrome window trim, and wrapped/blacked out his amber bumper reflector.

Tired of white car after white car with black roofs yet? Here's a Kia Forte that I vinyl wrapped the roof in gloss black. Pretty cool little car and a nice change of pace of all the euro/white cars.

Did that guy in the Kia Forte remove the KIA logo and put on a lexus badge? LOL. You do an amazing job. In regards to the silver carbon fiber material you posted above. I think it looks great, but I would not personally use it on the exterior of my vehicle. But I bet it would look amazing if used on the interior!

The black c63 above, what degree tint did you use on his tail lights, are the passenger and driver both tinted in all the photos, the passenger one seems darker?

Yes, it was a Lexus badge.

It could seem darker on one side than the other, because of the angle at which the light is hitting the car when the picture is taken.

Vinyl wrapped the rear trunk on this Subaru with the 3M Di-Noc carbon fiber material. Took a before picture of the trunk with the holes and the after once the trunk was wrapped. Note, it may or may not show up in the pictures, but there will still be slight impressions of the holes where the vinyl is covering over.

Hopefully these pictures will answer many people's questions of how well vinyl covers holes that I've been asked.
