    Hi everyone,

    I was hearing a lot of good things about the new technology of vinyl wrapping cars, I also so a sick yellow wrapped skyline down at Oulton park plus the carbon wrapped mini cooper. I was really impressed with the finish and ease of application so I've decided to take the plunge and carbon wrap (well 3M Di-Noc) my roof M6 stylee. TBH its looks better in person, the pictures don't seem to capture the full detail of the weave pattern but I still think it looks well and I've saved myself about £150 doing it with a mate & myself. All you need is:-

    Patience
    Clean bodywork
    IPA Cleaner
    Scalpel Knife
    Applicator
    Heat Gun
    And an endless supply of brews!

    Oh and its totally reverseable!!

    It looks good but I wouldn't say it's totally reverseable. I'm working with vinyls everyday also this one and belive me it happen few times when we lifted paint :( The adhesive on Di-Noc series is very strong and if surface wasn't prepare properly you may expect some trouble after few months. Also I'm not using IPA, I preffer 3M surface cleaner.

    Anyway good job.

    I'll be sure to hunt down the proper 3M goodies in the future, I'm thinking of doing my kidneygrills in the stuff. I'm also thinking of wrapping the whole car but I'm not sure what colour yet though. I don't particularly want to stand out from the crowd, but I don't want to blend into it either! Your compact sounds tasteful, have you and pictures anywhere else on the forum? I have a mate over on Audi-sport who's building a turbo nutter A4 and we're thinking of wrapping that in a similar style to what you have done. It would be nice to see how the various finishes sit together. Thanks again

    Chris

    May be quite tricky but you should do the trim that fits in the 'gutter' as well... That way it will be the same width as the windscreen. Then it would look really good!
