Gotcha, makes sense. I'm assuming you left the taillights on when wrapping that part then? I'm taking mine out so I can hopefully make things a bit easier

finally, my car is practically done. i only wrapped partial of the side mirrors because im planning on picking up a set of folding mirrors from the junkyard on my next day off. but enough talk, here are some pictures i took with my phone. ill take some better professional looking photos when i get the other set of mirrors.

Looks good, but could look better with a clear coat. That's the only problem I have with wraps. Sorry, but then I'm old school. But I like paint.

haha its all good, if you see it in person it actually looks like paint. i wouldve originally went with paint too but i didnt want to spend another 15-3k on it. the vinyl was a lot cheaper with self labor and its pretty durable against rock chips, well from what ive notice so far

Oh don't get me wrong, going with a wrap is a great alternative to spending 3K on paint. It's just that I do paint stuff, and haven't tried wrapping anything.
I'd like to see it outside though. Indoor shots with funky lighting always seem different than natural outside light (it's the same way with paint,
