Re: Vehicle Wrapping

Will do - I'm not having luck right now. My go to for everything - Mario over at Gold Coast Auto Body (he's the only person I let touch my babies) - his guy would't wrap the window trim even though I had all the product and I called Insight Sign Co over on Belmont and he said the job wasn't "worth his time". I've yet to call my window tint guy - I'm hoping when I see him later this week he'll do the trim when he does the front windows. Gold Coast still has the truck blacking everything out but as soon as I get it back I'll meet with my widow guy and update you.

That sounds like a good DIY project, especially since you already have all the supply's. The wrap materials now days are super easy to work with. Way easier then older vinyl. Just my two cents, I've done a few wrap projects and all have turned out excellent.

Re: Vehicle Wrapping

It looks like I'm going to have to DIY. I know I'll need quite a bit of blades and a felt tip but will I need any solution of any sorts or a heat gun to seal the edges?

Re: Vehicle Wrapping

Appreciate the reference - I've done some research and am going to attempt the first run myself. If that doesn't work I'll def give them a call.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! - Took the truck over to Xtreme today. It's finally finished and looks amazing! They did an outstanding job! I would recommend them to anyone looking for any type of wrapping work in the Chicago area.

Re: Vehicle Wrapping

$200 - it took almost 3 hours. They took their time and were very meticulous. I think it's pretty fair.
