Default I'm doing a car 3m vinyl wrap

For my 10 year honorship celebration I will have the car wrapped in 3m vinyl. It will me carbon fiber with my black trim I currently have (mirrors, splitter rear fascia). Then glossy black roof and spoiler. In 5 years I will do a white wrap with the same black idea. Its high end so $1650

The suspense is killing me. The car will arrive tonight or tomorrow. Gloss black trim, roof and spoiler. Carbon fiber body.

It's gonna rain here and so the car is not clean but I took a few pics in the sun today. Lasts 5 years. I got complements and had people stopping to take pictures of it as I observed from far away.

The pictures are up on www.paulscrossfire.com I had to re-design the home page as freewebs wanted to modernize and link social media etc. Consequently, the home page is very small now. I will add pages to fit in all that was lost.

Just closing the chapter here. 3 m has tested a clear coat over the wrap and now approves it. It's Valspar High Gloss Clear Enamel. I spent a week masking, spraying and wet sanding; followed by rubing compound, buffing and black wax kit. Pics are ready and the wrap shines well now.

This photo effect highlights the product names:

Here is a link to the video. I filmed it for me but I decided to post it. Next time I need to film with the sun shining on the car.
