Re: WK black matte vinyl roof

Or I might just pick up a roll and try it out if anyone would be interested in buying the extra whenever

Re: WK black matte vinyl roof

just measure your roof width....the wk's require a 60" roll...which is hard to find except on the internet

Not really. By wrap standards the WK roof is really, really flat. You got to use the heat gun but only gently. This means that you do not need to get the best vinyl either but the Oracal 970 is supposed to be able to wrap the front bumper.

Most car wrap vinyls have two glues. The first is just to position the vinyl and allows for it to be repositioned a couple dozen times without too much trouble but this is not what makes your vinyl stick. The second glue is contained in pressure sensitive micro capsules sop when you vinyl is in place you use a cloth (or your hand with the cotton glove) to apply pressure that releases the final tack. Its a two stage process of sorts.

Its easier done front to back or back to front rather than side to side.

If its real cold outside, your gonna want to let it rest and settle in at least an hour before exposing it to freezing temps which could contract the vinyl and cause it to lift on some parts.

If I were to do it again, I would probably wrap over the antenna without any cuts. If you are to cut, you just go over the antenna, use the heat gun to bring the edges as close as possible. You can make a cut on top of the antenna to make the "molding" easier and then trim as the very edge of the antenna.

This is about the time that I realized that I probably did not need to cut it out.


Here are the roof rack attachment.


And here one is trimmed ... think it shows the idea.

I am sure that it could be done (and look good) with the 7125 but you want to stick with a wrap specific vinyl which has air release channels. Its a big difference. The 3m 180c is generally considered to be the best on the market ... and its $ 193 for the same measurement.
