Just wondering, what does it cost for vinyl in rolls like you're doing?

Thanks guys. The whole car is being wrapped. White roof, white mirrors, white body. It should look fairly OEM, except that it will be matte white instead of Pepper White

The roll I bought was 48'x150' and cost me about $100 plus shipping. That should have been enough to wrap the car about 1.5 times, but you know how it goes, lol. It took me 2 failed roof attempts, 1 failed rear quarter panel and 1 failed boot attempt before I finally got it figured out. At least the hardest panel is done now though I still have enough vinyl to do the scoop and front bumper, so hopefully I can get to those this weekend.

I wish, but I've got too much on my plate this year. We're moving into my parents house on the 27th of April and we have a trip to Atlanta May 8-11. Plus it definitely won't be done by then.

I really like the color, it has a cool effect of blending all of the lines together that I didn't expect at all. I expect it's going to be really hard to photograph in daylight, but I guess we'll see.

Damn. That sucks. I was really looking forward to seeing it in person.

Maybe next year.

Anyway, it's really looking good, and I can't wait to see the finished product!

go for it. As long as you aren't easily discouraged it's actually pretty rewarding. I expect the Mini is one of the harder vehicles to wrap, I've yet to find a non-curved surface on it.
