Looks good on the Subie! Wrap some more stuff asap! I may want to do my trunk lid since the paint is fading and cracking.

Oh, I already removed that. It was too small for the bottom button so I put it there to see how it looks.

I got pricing for a group by. This is a really good deal. If we can get 10 people i can get any size piece at 25% off and if we get 20+ people I can get 30% off.

So for example a 48"x$48" is 149 dollars regular price. With 20 people that piece will be 102 dollars.

PM if you are interested and we can start an official group buy. I can guarantee you that you will not be disappointed with this stuff.

Thats fine. It really depends what you want to wrap in it. A good start would be to get like 24x48 piece and play around with it. That will be nought to do the radio surround or eye lids or door handles or other interior bits. Its a pretty large piece.

My center console is all fucked up with scratches and a few holes the previous owner drilled into it. Thinking of wrapping that bitch in this stuff.

Did the Dash hood! It took me hours! And i was about to kills myself doing it. My fiance helped me a lot by holding the hood while i was heating up the vinyl and stretching it over the hood.

I am very happy how it turned out and i pretty much measured it perfectly and did not have much waste. And btw all the stuff that you end up cutting off can still be used later for other stuff even if you crumble it together.

Here are a few pics and a video i took with my Ipod Nano. I actually cant believe how good the video quality is.







These leftovers are still usable.
