I dig the rims. Good stuff. I think it'll look really clean with white calipers.

Awesome work Vic! Very clever of you to shave the badges and cover the holes with the white vinyl

And those black/white lip rims would look F'ing amazing

Thanks guys, but I'm pretty set on the rims. It's down to 2 options, and one of them isn't available in the US (from what I can tell).

Whoops missed this:

The emblems are going back on, but I'm sending them to Lyle first to be wrapped They have to hide some of the cuts I made in the vinyl. It looks like rain all day today, so hopefully I'll have a chance to take off the front bumper and wrap it, or at the very least repaint the headlights.

Thanks!

The front one is done, it was just too dark last night to take pictures. Headlights are done too. What sucks is that none of these wraps are good enough to leave on the car, so eventually they'll all have to be redone. I also found out that you can, in fact, stretch it too much. It has these weird dark patches on some parts of the bumper from I guess either over stretching it or just too much heat. Anyway I'll snap a pic tonight. But yeah, that was a royal PITA to wrap.

How on earth did you deal with rock chips when you did yours? My bumper must've had 200 of them, and now every one of them has a bubble over it

You can tell I need to clean up my vinyl work under the headlights I also need to re-position them, but you can kind of see the color. If only I had a circular polarizer...

Now it's starting to look good IMO. I'm hoping that I can get to the roof on Thursday.

Way cleaner than any vinyl work I've ever done. Mine always ends up riddled with bubbles. Keep it up man! Starting to all come together

Lol, I'm glad to see other people appreciate it as much as I do. Everyone at my work thinks I was in a car accident I spent the evening removing bubbles and cleaning up the hood. Luckily that sloppy stuff around the headlights was just excess vinyl from the original hood wrap, so it was easy to clean up.
