Great work, Sir!

Wondering, how many years do you expect to get out of the wrap? Also, I scanned the entire thread and didn't see a summary of how much you spent on the vinyl wrap. That'd be useful for those of us who are considering following in your path.

Keep it up!

Thanks! I went with the 3M 1080 (gloss storm grey) series which 3M claims lasts about 7 years. I ordered a 50ft roll (250sq/ft) for $450.

How much is needed for your car excluding re-dos?

Tough to say. I'm not wrapping bumpers so hopefully 50ft will do. It's easy to order more if not.

That's a wrap.

I've probably already used that pun, but it works so much better this time because I've actually finally finished wrapping the 911. Going into it I thought the roof would be one of the easiest sections to wrap, but it turned out to be the worst. While the big flat section of the roof was cake, the rain gutters fought me every step. I also struggled to stretch and shrink the vinyl to have it contour along the A and C pillars.

Overall, the wrap was a success. I changed the color of the car with minimal investment and/or commitment. However, the rain gutter fail bothers me, and I'll likely re-do them at some point in the future. Would I do it again? Maybe.

Looks great Benny! Congratulations on a well done, completed project. I feel like the color combo worked well for a nice hot rod feel.

Great job, harder the battle, the sweeter the victory!

Cub Cadet looks like it could use a wrap next

Looks fantastic. I wouldn't worry too much about the rain gutters, you'll probably be the only one who'll notice it.

Not sure if you track your car or not, but I would be interested to see if this will provide some paint protection against rock chips and dings at the track (like a Clear Bra).
