Re: Matte Black wraps!

Did you ever give this matte black wrap a try? I have a 2005 black WK i bought a couple months ago and the previous owner was pretty bad about using the wrong tools to clean it. Swirl marks up the wazoo. I was going to wrap it but I'm going to try just wrapping the side view mirrors first to see how easy it is to do it yourself.

Re: Matte Black wraps!

pretty funny, I've seen the same one and thinking of doing it to mine. It's silver now with plastidipped rims and grill...

The temperature to do the wrap outside plays a big role, I tried wrapping my pillars in 25 degree weather with a heat gun - epic fail. Make sure wherever you live that it's warm enough.

Not sure I have the balls to do it yet, but I might have a few adult beverages and plastidip my whole jeep with a friend this weekend just to see how it looks. I'd rather blow $50 bucks on that to just see what the matte black looks like than $3,000. Plastidipping is easy after you get the hang of it and comes out surprisingly uniform if you go light enough. If you google, there are some posts of bimmers and an s4 totally plastidipped...now I'll sit back and wait for everyone to encourage me to be the guinea pig here and do it..

Re: Matte Black wraps!

Thinking of doing the same to my 11 Wrangler. Have blacked it all out but paint is still too shiny. Any suggestions as to where, what type wrap?

Re: Matte Black wraps!

Plasti dip is always an option.

I've seen a 2010 M3 that was dipped and it looked just as good as a paint job. The guy had it done by a pro body guy in a high end booth. Least thats what he told me.

The stuff is very easy to remove too incase you wanted to go back to stock. I did one of my rims over the summer to see if i would like the look and decided against it. Took maybe 5 mins to remove it.

Re: Matte Black wraps!

Honestly check out Plasti wrapping it before you get a vinyl wrap. Vinyl is gonna run upwards 4000$ while plasti dipping your entire vehicle is only gonna be like 1000-1300 depending on how many coats you do. watch this video on plasti dipping before you get the wrap it'll save you a bunch of money and wont chip, protects the paints, and if you ever decide to change it its a simple as peeling it off and choosing another colour!
