Are you supplying the material or are they? If I didn't buy my own vinyl ($80 on Amazon) it would have been $8.50 per square foot, or about $300 for the job.

They stated that they don't use outside material because it always ends up with a disaster. Either way I'll keep looking...

Re: Had my roof wrapped today.

How much of a PITA is it to drop the grill? I have a chrome grill on my Summit that I want to black out - looks like has braces or something. (pardon the partial hijack)

Dropping the bumper is actually pretty easy to do. Just make sure you pick up a plastic riveting tool from Harbor Freight so you can button everything up again.

Re: Had my roof wrapped today.

Do you have any finished project pics with your grill blacked out?

Overall, I'm happy with the look and the matte black works very well with the black trim on the Limited as well.
Now those chrome mirror covers need to go, I think it would look better if they were red (or black just like your roof?)

That's like bringing an uncooked steak to a restaurant... They will also, hopefully, do a better job with their own material.

Re: Had my roof wrapped today.

What do you think of painting the roof? I have an insurance roof paint job coming from paint cracking due to hail, so a full re-spray. Insted of trying to match the bright white I thought of going a complementary color like charcoal to match the limited wheels. I don't know about black.
