      Where are you buying the vinyl? The reason I ask is because I bought some cheap stuff in the past and it did not stick well. Now I am using Vinyl from a company called Metrorestying.com. They have just about everything yo need and it shrinks well with a heat gun. I have my interior trim on my Audi covered in Carbon black, the outside pillars in Carbon black, wagon hatch in flat silver. I will be doing more of the Audi this weekend. I will do the hood, and maybe the mirrors. Not sure yet.

      Thanks for that link, man. Been looking for a place that carried 3M vinyl, in the pattern I wanted, for a while now.

      Feel like wrapping a few parts for me when it gets here?

      Its not extremely difficult. There are hundreds of videos on the U-tube. You need a few items.

      exacto knife
      alcohol/claybar
      masking tape
      heat gun/hair dryer
      squeege....with a felt-tip

      and patients!

      Use low heat....below 70c

      on large parts, start with applying half and when that is done, do the rest. If you want to see, I will be doing some parts on my car tomorrow and then again next Saturday.
