FS: Vinyl car/roof/etc wrapping material - Blow out

I am going to be blowing out some over stocked vinyl that I have, to clear up my excess inventory a bit.

First up is my roll of satin black vinyl material. I either have enough for an entire car or I can split it up into smaller sections, based on whatever lengths you need.

Price will depend on the exact length you need. PM me the amount and I'll get you a price.

This is what satin black looks like:





I also have a roll of bright green vinyl, kind of like GT3RS green that I'll take pictures of when I get a chance.

In addition to the rolls above, I'll be discounting all of my matte black, gloss black, 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber and 3M di-noc matte carbon fiber vinyl materials at 20% off of my regular prices.

Shoot me a PM or e-mail for questions/inquires.

thanks.

Just to give you guys an idea of pricing on the satin material. For a roof sized sheet, it'll be $20 + shipping.

Let me know if you guys have any questions or inquires. I will have the lowest prices anywhere for vinyl for the next couple of weeks.

Also, don't forget, in addition to roofs, I can also cut it up into strips and sell it to you to use on your window trims. Here are pictures of an Audi B7 that I vinyl wrapped the window trim in my matte black material to black out his chrome.

For comparison sakes, here's pictures of gloss black on this white F10 550i BMW. Been starting to get more of these, as people start purchasing more of these cars. As you can see here, this is my gloss black vinyl material. If you want to go with as close as you can to a panoramic/glass/gloss black paint look, then this is your best option. Owner was around orange county and came out to me in Anaheim Hills to have the roof wrap done.

I've been getting a lot of people PMing me that they want the satin/matte finish, but those are two different finishes and I just wanted to post pictures of matte black in this thread to show the differences between the two.

So here is a white Subaru STI that I wrapped the roof in my matte black vinyl material.

So how does this stuff work.
I have a 2001 Z3, I'd like to do the bottom of the front bumper air intake.
Wrap around the bottom lip.
This is the part that gets a lot of road rash.
Probably will have to do it about once a year.
Does this stuff stretch to follow shapes and contours?
How easy is it to take it off.
This would be a lot cheaper than repainting the thing every year.

Yes, it stretches. It comes off like any other sticker. Usually there is very little residue left behind, and whatever is there can be taken off with soapy water.

I wanted to post some more pictures of satin black, since that's what this sale/thread is mainly for. I had to dig through some older pictures of guys that bought the satin black vinyl material from me and that DIYed it themselves. Here is a Mazda that bought some satin black vinyl material from me to do his roof with. His roof spoiler is CF, and I think his trunk was carbon fiber as well. It'll give you guys a better idea of how the satin black is in comparison to those pieces. Similar to the 350z in the original post with the satin black roof, the owner of this Mazda DIYed the roof install on his car with my satin black vinyl material.

Found some more pictures of my satin black material on the same 350z that's posted above in the original post. Not the best pictures in the world, but hopefully it'll still give you guys a better idea of the finish and how it looks on the car.

Christmas may be over, but I am continuing this until I get rid of all of my satin black material. Unfortunately, I do not have any more pictures of the satin black, but hopefully the ones that I have already posted above will be good enough for you guys to determine the differences and how it looks compared to the other finishes.

Here's a white BMW F10 535i that I recently worked on. I vinyl wrapped the chrome on this car's window trim with my matte black material. It really changes the look of the car completely, since the chrome doesn't match anything else on the car and the window trim especially takes up such a large real estate on the car when looking at it. We went with my matte black vinyl material for the window trim to match the rubber and door pillars that were also already matte black from the factory. The owner of this car was around south Orange County, and I happened to be in that area from Irvine that day so I dropped by to do the vinyl work on his car.

I've had people PM me to see if they can use my materials to wrap their interior trim pieces, and the answer to that is yes. I figure I'll post some pictures for you guys to show you some examples of how it looks like. Even though I am not much of a carbon fiber person myself, I think it makes the interior trim pieces look great. The material is even textured, so it has a nice feel to it.

Here's pictures of an E92's interior that I wrapped in the 3M carbon fiber di-noc vinyl material:









Here's the center console area and side door switches on a 350z:

Don, what does it cost to wrap the centre portion of the front air dam on an M Roadster (between the fangs)?

I've had people PMing me for pictures of the carbon fiber material. So I am going to repost these pictures here in this thread for those who haven't seen pictures of it in my other threads.

Here's another car that I did while I was up in norcal doing some vinyl wraps. This car was around the Hayward area. The car is a white IS250, and I did his roof in the 3M 1080 gloss black carbon fiber material. It was the first car that I actually had used the material on for the roof. These pictures will also give those who have other cf parts a good idea of how the carbon fiber 3M 1080 vinyl looks compared to it. Don't mind the uneven marks, those were just water streaks from when I wiped the roof down in the heat. The camera picked those up more than how it looked like in person, or else I would have cleaned it better

What all would I need to wrap the window trim on a 07 E90 335i? I'm not sure how it would turn out with me doing it! I've been tryin to decide on me wrapping it or having my brother-in-law paint it at his body shop. Thanks

Realistically, all you need is an xacto blade.

This is kind of a two for one deal, so there's going to be more pictures in this post than usual. This white 3rd gen Lexus GS300 came by to have me install a gloss black vinyl roof on his car and while he was here he also decided to tint/smoke his rear tail lights as well. We went with the gloss black vinyl for his roof to give it a factory panoramic look. For the tail lights, I tinted the whole thing and then cut out the clear portions for him. I included a picture that shows what it would have looked like with the clear portion tinted compared to it with the clear portion cut out. The owner of this car came out to me in Anaheim Hills from around Cerritos/north Orange County.

Before:




During (left/driver side is completely tinted, and the right/passenger side has the clear portion cut out):

I am still getting PMing me about pictures or what the differences are between the two carbon fiber materials. So I'll go ahead and just post some pictures of the 3M di noc matte carbon fiber on cars instead of the those interior trim pieces that I have already posted, so you can kind of have a better visual.

Gloss black vinyl roof that I wrapped on a white C350 to give it the panoramic roof effect/look. Owner of this car was in Irvine/Tustin as well. Pretty simple and straight forward look/style

Does this leave any residue if you decide to remove it?

Nevermind...saw it above.
