attempt #1 at wrapping my car. I tried to do the hood (started on the left side, but got impatient as I tried moving to the right). gave up on getting rid of all the air bubbles after about an hour (looked a lot worse before). gonna try it again after I get my service done next week. i'll fully detail it on the outside and just keep it in the garage until it's done. i'm thinking I can knock out 1 or 2 panels a day and have it ready in about a week after I start. I realized I just need one extra set of hands to help me get the vinyl on the car the right way. after that, getting the air bubbles out should be a lot less tedious.
the eventual goal is to have it looking like this:
if I can't get the wrap to look right myself, i'm just going to take it to my dealer who said they'd do it for $2,000 since I already bought all the vinyl. they usually charge $4,000 so not a bad good deal considering the vinyl only cost $500.
