Wrapped Trim pt1 (revisited w/pics)
 
3 Attachment(s)
Today I wrapped my interior trim panels in that 3M 1080 scotch print brushed aluminum vinyl. Smooth I must say. Digging the outcome:woot:; I didn't have enough time for the whole car or enough vinyl (door handles, shifter bezel & rear armrests left to do). I used a 12"x60" (1ft x5ft) piece got the wrap from eBay $17.50 with shipping. I probably need about 1ft x 3ft more for the rest in addition to what I have left over. I know I have enough for at least the shifter bezel and one arm rest for sure. As opposed to paying an exorbitant amount of chee$e for the oem brushed aluminum panels I took the more frugal approach. As for the rest of the pieces to wrap I'll handle that maņana (now it's today- Pt 2). I feel proud of my work. :D

With the 1080 did you use Primer prior to wrapping your trim. About to get to it tomorrow, I feel like 3m is trying to be smart by not saying yes or no but simply that it will "improve adhesion." Think they just want me to cough up money but thought I'd look for an opinion.
