    hi iv got an e60 with chrome window trim and i want it black local vinyl wrapper costs £240 removing and painting looks a bit dodgy due to bending the trim rendering it useless iv heard of this shadow-line vinyl which is DIY but looks hard to do so had the idea to either swallow the fears and wrap it myself or swallow my fears and the rest of my body and mask the car to death and etch prime and paint it myself any suggestions please? only problem with the wrap is the lengths it comes in and i dont want to have joins in the trims?

    thanks

    £240 !?!?!? for wrapping!?!
    I'm sorry but I've got my own wrapping business and I wouldnt charge more than £120 for wrapping them in black (gloss or matt). Just shop around and I'm sure you can beat that price

    Just wrap it yourself. It's not hard work, just got to take your time when doing it. I have done all my interior in carbon fibre and it looks great I think. Give it ago, your not going to wreck anything by doing it :-)
