I bought the material and supplies and geared myself by watching YouTube videos. I then started this project last Friday and finished this past Sunday. Took me about 9 days, working on one or two panels a day along with taking the car apart. In total I think I spent about 40-50 hours on this project.

Got progressively better towards the end though.

My car is a smurf now!

I'd like to thank Amazon for having one day prime delivery because I ran out of supplies. Next, I'd like to thank my hands and back for enduring the pain of being hunched over applying this blue sticker on my car. I also like to thank the countless mosquitos that bit me during this week of torture ().

Never again.

PS. I hate bumpers.

Wow that came out very nice! When I saw the pic with just the trunk done and that complicated bumper underneath, I got that feeling of dread. Like when you start something and it hits you how much work this is actually going to be, and it's too late to turn back! And then all those photos, I started feeling back pain lol. And finally the pictures outside in the sun, such joy for completing your DIY. Thanks for the experience without any of the work or pain!

How long do these wraps last as long as you take care of them?

Quick update guys as its almost been a year!

The wrap still looks awesome and I still get lots of compliments!

I ended up getting rid of my Titan7 19 inch wheels in favor of the OEM 18inch 513 wheels so I could have fatter sidewalls for more comfort! Makes the car look more aggressive in my opinion! The ferric gray also matches really well with the wrap job as well!

I also did a thing today.

I bought a replica FRP GTS hood from a member on the board today and ended up installing it and wrapping it all in the same day!

Note that I haven't wrapped anything since I fully wrapped my car back in April of 2020, but it was like riding a bike. Finished prepping and wrapping the hood in about 2 hours! Ha! I need to find more things to wrap. Was fun and therapeutic to do it again.

Still need to align the hood better, but at least its all the same color!

Its also nice to have a wrap since I didn't need to send the hood out to the body shop for primer and paint.

Thanks man! If you haven't tried it, you should. It's really fun and rewarding. Just make sure you can set aside time to do it.

That looks amazing!

Any tips on doing the inlay pieces on the bumpers? Did you use knifeless tape to cut the inlays then another layer of knifeless for the big piece?

Best advice is to buy a bumper stand and wrap your bumper with it off the vehicle, preferably inside a heated garage. Take your time as well. I used knifeless tape for everything and it would've been so much easier if the bumper was off the car. I'm looking to rewrap my bumpers later when I have some time.

Hahaha if youíre single or have domination over your kids and wife, then you should do it. Iím married with kids and I have no power in this relationship so I think Iíll never been able to wrap it again due to the time it takes. Hahahahhahah
