Wrapped

So just got back from having the spoiler, roof, wing mirrors wrapped matte black, and headlights tinted.

I'm impressed, now onto de-chroming the rest of it!

You didn't fancy tinting the rear lights?

No by all means, I'm very happy with the price and the quality, 210 all in. 150 for the wrap. 60 for lights.
RS Customs in Bradford.

The light tint makes no difference to lighting of the road, once headlights are on you can't even tell!

When they were wrapping the roof they found that it had been resprayed for some reason, so the lacquer started to peel, but they managed to, some how, save it!

When the warmer weather comes around next year I'm gonna dechrome front grill and front diffuser first off, then window chrome and rear diffuser, already done the badges all round.

Very happy all in all. Can't wait for the finished product!

And rear lights, I will at some point, although the rear lights look to be quite dark anyway, although hard to notice on photos

I've used plastidip on my front and rear chrome easy to do and cheap. Il have to find someone to do my lights round here, I fancy having a go doing the roof and spoiler myself.

Ye, I've plasti dipped the badges all round and plan to plasti dip or spray wrap the chrome, just be careful with the wrap. I wrapped my own roof on the swift, just to try it, didn't enter it into any shows or anything unlike I will for the DS4, and one slight crease and that's it.

Rs Customs is a nation wide company I think, so have a look.

Where you based

Based in Anglesey North Wales, car came from over your neck of the woods 3 months back maybe.
Ive only ever tried wrapping on some chrome bits on an Astra H a few years ago, I could remove the parts to do them on that so it was easy.
I'm thinking of spraying the roof and spoiler myself with plastidip. Think I can get a decent finish off it, just don't know how well it would last?

Easiest way I found to spray the front grill was removing the lower screws that keep the under tray attached to the bumper (5 or 6 screws)
I could then push a sheet up behind the grill and covered the fan and the radiator so i could spray the whole grill area and not worry about overspray on the engine. parts.

Oh ye. Where did your car come from? And plasti dip on the roof would be okay, but not the spray cans, you'd need the full kit I'd suggest.

And ye I've seen that, either that or removing the top tray from the bonnet, gonna have a look at that in the new year I think.

Can't wait for the finished products ready for the car shows to start!
