Vinyl Shop NYC/LI?

I have called every vinyl wrap shop in Brooklyn, and all have rejected me since I just want the chrome trim and accents wrapped. "Job is too small". Anyone know of a good shop close to or in NYC??

I hadn't heard of these guys. I am going to see if they can wrap my chrome parts in grey, to match my rims.

Thanks!

Thanks for the recommendations guys. I am headed to the Custom Shop, in Queens. They were great about giving me a loose verbal quote on the phone and said they could slot me in first thing tomorrow morning. Showtime customs never picked up their phone, and seem to have a home answering machine picking up.

What's your experience with them that has you turned against them?

One high quote and the way they carry themselves. I've seen people recommend other vinyl shops and their response is basically 'lol we're the best but go ahead and try someone else.' Sure they do nice work but seem to generally be not the kind of people I'd want to deal with - but that was all dealing with someone who works there, not the owner.

Re: Vinyl Shop NYC/LI?

Ah, gotcha. Custom Shop was GREAT over the phone. I am pretty sure I was speaking to the owner, and he said he has a Grand Cherokee, as well. That definitely helped me make up my mind.

Nice yeah there are two owners, Brett and I can't think of the other guy's name, but they're both real nice guys. My detailer, Joe from Get It Detailed, does a lot of work with them and that's how I met them.

Re: Vinyl Shop NYC/LI?

Just to wrap this up for future searchers and readers of this thread:

I called Custom Shop on Monday and they told me to come in the following morning at 9 am, said it would take 5 hours. Got up early, drove through traffic to Queens with a plan on taking an uber back to BK for work. When I got there they quoted me ($550) for handles, window trim, and trunk "step" surround in gloss black. Then, they tell me that they couldn't do it that day because "the rain". I was a little surprised by this. It's not like they work outdoors. Then they proceeded to go back to work on another vehicle getting a wrap job, despite the rain... I looked at my weather app and saw that Thursday was the next day without rain (still confused about rain being an issue in the first place). I told them that I would like to drop it as early as possible, so I can get back to work and pick it up at the end of the day. They then told me that 1pm was the earliest they could do. This is despite having a white board up on their wall with their schedule. It was completely clear for the morning... I don't doubt that they do great work, and the cars I've seen Instagram are great, and they seem like a good group of guys, but this experience was just very strange, and the quote seemed high.

Luckily, I ended up stopping in at a glass tinting place in BK on my way home. I got a much more reasonable quote of $350 from Adam, and he told me to bring it back the next morning (on a rainy day) and leave it for 4-5 hours. I asked Adam if he'd ever heard of not applying vinyl due to rain and he laughed. As long as you don't go through a car wash or apply pressure for about 48 hours, the vinyl will cure just fine. Came back the next day and they did a great job.

TLDR: Got a high price quote from Custom Shop ($550) and a strange handling of scheduling, resulting in a waste of sitting in traffic for about 2.5 hours. Got a second quote from Brooklyn Auto Sound & Glass for $350. Took it to them next day and they did a GREAT job. Brooklyn Auto Sound & Glass: 4th ave and 18th street - 718 369 3030 [ask for Adam].

To be clear, I'm not bashing Custom Shop, just laying out the facts.
