    3M 1080 Mohawk Complete Pics inside

    Hey everyone

    Got my d3 inspired mohawk on this week. Still need to plasti dip the vents and finish the flat black vinyl on the window trim. Grill is plasti dipped and the surround is 3m gloss black vinyl. Trunk chrome is gloss black vinyl as well. Head lights have light(its verrrry light) smoke tint and gloss vinyl eyebrows. Let me know what you think!





    Thanks for looking!

    Left it on there. There is more than enough gap to just leave a 1/4 inch extra and tuck it under.

    on a side note...had it out for an hour today and got offered cash for the car twice...too bad i spent a year looking for this one. coulda made a quick 5k. HAHA

    EDIT

    i did remove the chrome trim though and wrapped it with the gloss black and ran the flat all the way under.

    Car definitely looks really good ! I like how the gloss black wrap came out. Would like to see a side shot if possible you going with gloss or flat on window trim ?

    got the window trim done in flat black plasti dip

    I have started heating the crap outta the can before I spray it and have gotten the dip to lay on with next to no texture. This is the only way i have found to get it to go on this flat

    Did you buy a kit for the mohawk? How did you get it so close and neat looking around the sunroof. Did you have to remove anything?

    Just with an electric space heater. Or if i know im going to be working with it ill put it on the heater vent in the house. Obviously that only works if it is cold outside.

    Negative. Just a 60 inch wide x 15 foot long roll of 3m 1080 flat black vinyl. You cut it using knifeless tape (http://www.knifelesstechsystems.com). The knifeless tape is so awesome. Makes the job a piece of cake if you have the patience to apply the vinyl. Lots of youtube vids on it. Cookie's tips are the best(he works for 3m).

    Car looks fantastic. I really like that flat hood color. I too just started to blacken mine out, I have done the two side fender grills with Plasti Dip and they came out perfect and I am now looking to do the window trim this weekend. Can you tell me how you taped off the trim around the windows and did any of it seep behind the door edges? Any issues you ran into doing the window trim that you might want to point out would be very helpful. Thanks
