Vinyl wrapping

New Member 1st post hey fellas

I have decided to take up vinyl wrapping and Plastic dipping due to the outrageous prices in New York.

I will upload pics of my progress as I am learning.

Feel free to upload your wrapping and dipping as well

Cool Re: Vinyl wrapping





First attempt is on my Key Fob. Came out ok for a first timer wanted to get an idea of how i could stretch the vinyl without it ripping. Only real problem i had was cutting in small areas. Its hard to cut a rounded edge with a straight blade

Re: Vinyl wrapping

Careful with the heat gun, I tend to go for the lowest setting on a hair dryer. Good luck and post your work.

Re: Vinyl wrapping

Decided to get up early and attack this wack ass chrome trim





2 coats flat black 2 coats glossifier



:thumbs:


One of the edges pulled up on me and i tried to cover spray it but of course that didn't work so i will have to do that piece all over again but i will wait to see how long it takes to harden and how it stands up to the elements first.

Re: Vinyl wrapping

Plasti dipping works great, I did my truck about two years ago and haven't had an issue with the badges. I only hand wash, not sure if you used car washes if it would come off or not?

Still haven't convinced my wife to let me try it on her jeep.

I also vinyl wrapped my rear bumper, still holding up.

Looking forward to seeing your completed jeep so I can show the wife to maybe convince her.

Re: Vinyl wrapping

I hand wash also but i have seen video of plasti dip through car washes and it does not come off. Took all the badges off except the back jeep one only because i think there are post holes under it. Don't know if anyone has removed it but i will do something with it soon

Hdrolling luv that color!

Similar to all the other emblems, used a heat gun as it also has the double sided 3M tape. Used fishing wire around the lugs and carefully used a trim tool. Did this several times and it came off fine.

Re: Vinyl wrapping

The window trim looks great but it's going to fade and get ugly within a few months. I had to remove mine and just wrap it. My wrap has held up for a few years without issue
