Overall, it took me about 6 months to complete. I took my time with it since I was still waiting on a turbo anyways. It took A LOT of patience. It was more like meditation.

I had kept my car polished and waxed regularly, so the paint was perfect before I laid down the vinyl; although I did clay bar it for good measure.

I started on the wrap last July... In the heat, it's a pain in the ass. By the time winter rolled around, it was a lot easier to manipulate with the heat gun.

This car turns a lot of heads... young and old. I expected some criticism, but surprisingly... it's been a big hit. I had my car parked on Main Street in Park City for an hour and I had a couple old guys looking around the whole car trying to figure out if it really was metal. It looks and feels like it's real. Most people have asked me how I got the metal to look like that.
