Same as all other typical vehicle wrap films. It is a dry application.

I'm starting out with 5x50ft expecting to purchase maybe another 10-15ft to compensate for mistakes and stuff. 3M and Avery films which tend to be the most popular run I think about $500 for 60 feet.

Finally got the camera out and snapped a quick picture. I've been posting iphone pictures lately because it is so quick and easy to do from the phone. Tried to keep the editing to a minimum. You cannot truly capture this color in photos which is kind of a bummer but it is stunning in person.

oh yeah, the car is all torn apart and the ride height is completely out of whack during the process for now.

the only cooling system item that hasn't been replaced. comes as no surprise that at 125k it is now leaking somewhat badly. I'll be doing a coolant flush as well to get the last of the green crap out of there.

Have you experienced any coolant leaks from the heat exchanger/oil cooler?

Yeah, mine started leaking coolant the other day and not it stopped. Don't get it.

On a side note, do you have any plans for the rust behind the side skirts?

Haha good catch. No plans to do anything about it. The wrap will cover up the spot that is bubbling the paint slightly. It's about the size of a quarter. Hoping it treats me well for another couple of years and then this car will be my beater so I can get a E46 M3.

Yea I would get new bolts. I noticed that it was so much easier to remove my front bumper before I put on my MTech 2
