Decided to wrap my bumpers and grille this weekend...

So, I want to make my truck all black when I'm done here shortly. So today I decided to "murder" out my truck. I wrapped my front bumper, back bumper, front grille, front ford emblem, rear ford emblem, mirror caps, and my one interior trim piece that was wood grain. Turned out awesome!!!

I cheated though, my cousin did it for my. He has been wrapping for 8 years now.

We used Avery Black Gloss Metallic. Used about 90 square feet.

Here are some pics before, during, and after.

I havent put the grille back on the truck yet. Doing some new headlights tomorrow.

Here it is!

Hope You all enjoy!

Took awhile but it looks good. Took apart everything and did it right. Did not cut corners. Took off all plastic trim and anything possible to make sure it looked the best.

So... does this mean we can start a new 'murdered' out thread.... the last one went really good. Truck looks good, man. How well is the wrap holding up so far?

How much was the vinyl wrap? I just painted my bumpers, fender flares, and lower rockers from tan to black with plastic dip. I'd rather do the vinyl wrap, but it was like $500 in materials! I'd rather wrap it than plastic dip it.

Tuscany,

The brand I used was called Avery. Chose them over 3M because 3M is having problems with their black gloss metallic on transparency issues. The adhesive is letting some bright colors (like chrome) show through. So I went with Avery, plus it's cheaper! Ha

I got it from Auto vinyl solutions. They are great to deal with. Best prices I could find.

Holding up good! I mean, it's only been on for about 20 hours! Haha but really, it looks so good that you would think it was painted.

I went with Avery wrap from Auto Vinyl Solutions. It cost me about $1.75 a square foot. I bought 100 square feet and have extra left over. You just need to measure before and see how much you have, and then buy a lil extra! I did my front bumper, back bumper, mirror caps, all the grille pieces, and my center dash ring. Probably got around 20 square feet left in various sizes. Enough to redo the bumper if needed and extra pieces. It looks amazing.

I have total about 14 hours in it (breakdown, wrap, re-assemble) an about $200 into it.

The trick, patience! Take your time wrapping!!!! And take apart the trim and don't cut corners!
