    Ready to reveal my pics

    Ok, so I've been kinda keeping my project on the low untill it is complete. I know there's gonna be some haters but I don't care, I'm happy with it and it gets quite a bit of attention where ever I go. I tried to take as many pics as I could along the way to share my progress. Below are the pics with 20" rims, A matte black wrap, Eibach springs, Painted calipers, And tinted lights. I still have some things to touch up on though like the grille, and the side vents. I need to get all the chrome off the car. Just running in to the buisy season at work so time is tight.


    NEW CAR, bought it with the rims already on it. 08 3.6 DI with 68,000mi. Paid $15k. Needed minor work.









    Matte black vinyl wrap. Two long days to complete by myself... (I didn't really want help lol)















    Brake calipers painted gold, and silver of the rims wrapped in the same matte black as the body









    Headlights and Taillights tinted... Painted in the rear, and film on the front








    COMPLETED PICS A FEW POSTS DOWN!!!!!

    Just edit the post and insert the photos one by one...

    I like the look btw. Nice job with the vinyl wrap!

    You just need to finish blacking out the front grille

    I still don't really understand MTL... What do you mean by insert them one by one? Can I still use the HTML?

    Just insert each photo with image tags like I did in the post above.

    It should look like this:

    [IMG]www.photoURL.com/image123.jpeg[/IMG]

    Where in between the image tags is the URL of the photo you want to show

    Thanks. Just the cost of materials which was around $900. I did it myself, but I own a sign company that does wraps. I've been doing it a while.

    What is that stuff? Heat shrink?
    Does it peel off or scratch easy? What about snow and salt?

    It's vinyl material, but it can be stretched or shrunk and its comforable. It looks easier to install in the pics then it really is. That was two LONG days of install time and I've been doin this for years... It does peel off if you want it to but its on there really good. It will scratch if gouged hard enough, but so will paint. Snow and salt dont effect it, but it should be maintained just like you car's normal paint. I treat it like a normal car and run it through the car wash. Minimal maintence required.
