What color are u going with next, and are you sticking with the same brand? I'm really liking the Avery stuff. I haven't tried peeling any panels off yet so I don't know how that will be. Are you guys using heat to peel them off?

didnt need any heat although its only been on the car 6 months.
The doors might be a bit more tricky.. the rest was wrapped over single stage blitz black paint.

Avery pearl white satin.

Nice! That's the color I have, that color would look nice on your car. Now that I'm comfortable with wrapping mine I'm going to go with gunmetal. My car is already OEM Pikes Peak...

Black chrome would be pretty badass if you pull it off. I always thought about doing a brushed stainless roof... Idk maybe too tacky!

Love the look of your car. Is that the nismo v2 bumper without the canards? Also, what headlights?

Going to be wrapping my car white soon. Excited!

Thanks bro! Yeah it's the V2 Bumper... It's actually a Duraflex Bumper lol. The fitment is probably a 8/10. If I had to do it again I would ether get Shine or a Urethane one. All in all its holding up pretty good, I scrape the lip all of the time lol. The headlights are OEM with tint, nothing special.

I still want to try doing this to my own car, just for fun. Might make an attempt when it's a bit warmer out.
