Do you think dating profile pics look better than the person in real life? I think the answer is obvious.

It looks great but still not sure it's for me.

In person it looks just as good as in the photos. Like I said if you're trying to find the tiny imperfections you literally need to have your face up against the car looking for them, and even those are in more hidden areas and not on all the flat easy to see surfaces. When I say imperfections I'm not talking about small bubbles or wrinkles in the wrap. The finish is perfect OEM quality and all the surfaces are perfectly flat, wrinkle, and bubble free. Again, I am probably one of the most anal guys on this forum and I am happy with the results and would do it again the same way if I had the choice. One, its fairly inexpensive, two it's reversible, and three the other options are not feasible. Keep in mind though this is all dependent on the installer. One guy could do a perfect job and the next guy might not. My guy did a good job and I'm happy with the results. Certainly better than I could do and I even attempted it and it was disastrous lol.
I'll pull the Jeep out of the garage and into the sun and see if I can get some better pictures.

Here guys I took it outside and snapped more pics. I took closeup shots of the critical areas. Hopefully this helps show things in a little more detail. After pulling it out into the sun I'm still 100% happy I got the trim wrapped.

Re: High Altitude chrome window trim wrapped.

JTS,
What do you do and use to get your tires so clean and shiny?

Re: High Altitude chrome window trim wrapped.

Looks good. Cheapest quote I got here in central Ohio was $320~. Highest was over $700!!! I paid about $350 which sucks, but it did transform the look of the Jeep even though nobody else will ever know.

I actually don't always use tire shine mainly because I hate how it gets on the side of the car after driving, but I decided to this time to help compliment the new gloss black trim. When I wash my car I start by using Wesleys (or I guess now its Black Magic brand) tire cleaner. That pretty much leaves the tires clean and flat finished. Then I apply Black Magic spray tire shine. I made a cardboard disc that covers the rim while I apply the shine so it doesn't get all over the wheels. Cheap products, nothing special, but they work.

Yeah its crazy how prices are all over the place. Some shops wont even do it, some say its so expensive it wont even be worth it, and others are 100-200 bucks. It sucks because it could be hard to find a good shop, and until I got the recommendation from MOFSTEEL I wasn't able to find a shop either.





Thanks for all the compliments guys I appreciate it.

Oh that's exactly what I use, and I don't always use tire shine either for the same reason. I need to buy some more Wesleys.
