Thread: Vinyl Wrap

Gonna wrap the white hood of our GTR with Carbon Fibre Black to see what it looks like, as the cost of a new hood is over double what you guys in USA pay, as usual us in Aus get stung.
Any pointers anyone on what and what not to do when doing the hood!
Have watched you tube etc and it seems straight forward enough, however any advice would be greatly appreciated.

try not to stretch it too much, i had a lot lift in creases and other odd areas. go slow amd use a blow dryer to help it lay down, and watch for air bubbles, they will expand and grow in the sun, i pulled the black carbon fiber off after a year, it was like riding a new ski again, i ski i hate none the less.....

I wrapped about 50% of one of my skis. just take it slow. use a squeegee to push out all air bubbles as you go. as for the heat, it will expand to fit the area when you apply heat but i've found that the second time you apply heat to the same area it shrinks.
It helps to have 2 people working together, or at least in my situation with a large area
all the green is vinyl, the steering pole was the hardest
