My Ride: E46 Slow CSL
Wink DIY: 1 hour with Dry Carbon Wrap Vinyl just only $140

Hi All

Yesterday took my car to do Wheel alignment at my friend workshop then I just saw his delivery.. it was all Vinyl car wrap, my friend wanna grow his business and do vinyl car wrap.

I ask him how much will he charge for wrapping my sunroof, the answer was $$$$ for me its too much

So I just told him, I need 200cm x 200cm for my sunroof so he charge me $140 then he told me it's hard and take time (I was thinking really ) then went home but still thinking that can I do that.

So I went back home washed my sunroof in 5mins and dry out.

I was thinking to do it next day with my experience vinyl wrap friend then I thought, is that hard to do it? what if I mess up...

The I asked Mitch to come and he was rapidly jump in his car 15mins later he arrived.

We started with a bottle of beer then we just jump in to it, so it take 40 mins for wrap all the sunroof. I took antenna out to do the wrapping properly a little bit hard but it good to do it.

Then finished wrapping and I would say I can do it I think everyone can do it as well why you need to pay lots money for that.

Special Thanks to Mitch

If you wanna know and wondering how it look see you guys on the meet!! or Pm me.. welcome and happy to help.

So I took some pics Enjoy

I have to admit when I first starting reading this and then seeing you were going to do it yourself, I was thinking gawd this is going to be bad. But I have to say that looks pretty bloody good, well done on the job. Looks fantastic.
