Black Roof Vinyl Wrap Pictures - Q&A/FAQ/etc.
 
I get people asking me the what a gloss black roof versus a matte black roof looks like all the time, so I will start out with two almost identical E90s I did this weekend. The first one went with a gloss black finish, while the second one went with a matte black finish. It'll give you guys a good idea of how the two compare/contrast.

If you guys are looking for any vinyl materials to cover your roof, window trim, etc, shoot me a PM with what you need or post up any questions you might have.

White E60 that opted not to have the side/roof rails wrapped, to give it more of that panoramic roof effect:

I told you, you needed a Q&A page! Good luck, I'm going to be ordering more soon! My first install was a disaster :-(

Shoot me a PM for specifics, since each car is different.

It will depend on the surface. There are different techniques to applying it on non painted surfaces (IE fiberglass/bondo/etc). It gets kind of tricky and is more intricate, where if you have to ask, it's usually better to have someone else do it for you.

Yes I could. Typical costs for full car wraps range ~$3k.

Some more older pictures (excuse the quality of them, they were taking with an ancient camera).

Looks FRESHH.

Don Nguyen 09-15-2009 01:04 AM

Thanks. I am trying to decide if I should start a thread of other decals that I have made and some drift cars that I have done full body wraps for.

^Do it!! :D

Helped a buddy of mine apply vinyl on an Eclipse roof, and it was easier than we thought. Just be patient, and try to have a friend help you.

I'm in the process of trying to get my E36 M3 perfect (body), then to order the Matte White vinyl from you Don. Only problem is there's more rust than we thought, and am contemplating getting new bumpers and skirts since mine are so old. :(

Yea, rust is no fun. Definitely get all of that sorted out before applying vinyl over it, in order to get the best results.

The roof of this car has CF or gloss blk?

BMWDEMON 09-15-2009 07:31 AM

Don,

If I find my new E46 M3 on the west coast I am gonna hit you up to do the roof right away, otherwise I'll order the stuff from you. Post is a great idea...can't wait to see more of your work. I think you should post up the other pics you were mentioning and if you want a little fun we should come up with a scheme for my new M3...I am going with a JDM flair so might do some matte vinyl graphics...like A/W on matte white.
