Ben, good on ya for doing it a third time and getting it right. Fun watching this process, though I don't envy the front fender project! The nice part is, you will continue to get better on each panel. PS I would wrap the hood, or replace with carbon fiber hood and leave it cf.

Thanks! The backdate conversion hood I have is fiberglass so any CF weight savings would be negligible. The cool part is that unlike painting, I can just leave the hood for last and see what the car looks like before deciding.

Ben, great job on the wrap and the video. You'll no doubt be a pro by the time you finish the rest of the car.

Nice job. Pleasantly surprised by your video. I'm going to go check out your channel now.

White, black, and orange really works well as a color scheme.

Thanks! Youtube channels, as a medium, fascinate me so I try to put as much extra effort in the 'film-making' aspect as possible.

Big update: Progress has been made!!

The work has spanned many days, but I now have the whole driver's side of the car covered. I did my best to take any lessons learned and apply them to the more complex panels like the rear quarter panel and front fender, but as predicted the many curves proved to be quite the challenge. I ended up relying heavily on both the heat gun and my patience, but I'm pretty happy with the result. I can see some imperfections up close, however stepping back just a foot hides it.

On to the passenger side!

Awesome work. Just saw a wrapped $ Lambo this weekend. You can see tiny imperfections on that one if you get close too, so no worries.

Do existing imperfections in the underlying paint show up after the wrap? I'd assume door dings could be seen, but I'm curious what shows and what can be hidden?

YES! This is probably the 2nd biggest thing I'm battling on my car after the curves. Every imperfection comes through whether it's a small chip, a speck of dirt, whatever.

Benny,

Excellent work and great video.

For a little bit in the beginning, you got a lot better looking!

Hahaha my wife is amazingly tall so I was happy to have her wingspan for laying down that piece!

Is there an easy way to remove the wiper posts and washer squirters? I couldn't find a good way to wrap/cut around them..

I believe the washer jets just pop out. Not sure about the wipers.

Thanks. I was able to pop the washers out and pushed the wiper posts down just enough to make my second attempt successful. New vid coming soon!
