Yea it CAN look good, if done RIGHT
I'm not a professional, but mine looks perfect. In my garage. I used a hair dryer and a pack of razor blades.

Me and my brother plastidipped his civic orange. I mean its nice looking, and no skill is needed, at all. But my car looks like it was almost painted professionally, you can tell his is plastidip.

Seems like a good way to change the color of my car.


I did my door jambs, I didn't do underhood. But my car is black, so you can't really tell anyways if your not paying attention.
I wrapped a 3series that was red in matte green, THAT was noticable, so we had to wrap everything. But wrapping a car for 5-700 vs 3k for a halfway decent paint, the answer is clear for those with a budget who just want a cool looking car to people without a magnifying glass.

Srt4kta thank you!

My car is black too. I was thinking of skipping the jams. I am looking to go with the Black brushed metal. I wanted to go with a brushed steel but after seeing it I think I would have to do under the hood and door jams.

Here is a shot of the samples I got. I need to take one of the black. This one is the brushed steel.

Here is the brushed black next to the flat black. I am going to play around with the combinations a bit more.

Idk, after looking at videos on how to do this , i doubt ill be able to do it myself , specially since i dont have a second person to help me. I rather get a cheap paint job and re do it every few years if i need to at this point.

I want to wrap my car too.. My only concern is, I have PERFECT paint.. and i do not want it to be damaged after i removed the wrap. I want to do matte white. My car is flame red... i have to many tickets. White is easier to keep clean. any links to one with matte white?

It looks awesome, like matte black on a gloss black car is fine. You really can't tell in the engine bay or door jambs.

White over Red, shit son you better pack a lunch, that's going to be a hell of a job. Unless you skimp on the jambs and engine bay, which at that point it's going to look hacked.

Chris if you have perfect paint. Just don't do it. When I bought my car every single panel had a ding, or a crease, or something, and the paint looked like a litter of kittens was born on top of the car with iron nails. I had to repair all the dents and decide. 3k on paint or 400 on vinyl.

I envy the clean look that perfect srt4s have, I want nothing more in the world than an eblue with acr stripes... But they also get butthurt about me having race car stance. So its all perspective.

That's signature worthy right there.

Ill quote myself in my own signature. I'm just an arrogant srt4 owner like that.
Also I wear my flatbill hat backwards and listen to only terrible techno.

I have been thinking about wrapping the roof of my nsrt. I have an OB with a carbon hood and a black trunk. What do you guys think I should use to wrapping it? A black carbon fiber or just black??

That is why I am doing mine. The car was keyed before I got it...
