Show me ur vinyl Wrapped TJs!

I was interested in wrapping my jeep tj! I think it looks awesome! And I can't really decide what on what color I want. I'm debating on the gloss blue metallic, and the brushed blue steel! I'm also doing my interior, rims and accessories matte black along with some fiber carbon vinyl to spice things up! Lol what do u guys think??, what is ur opinions on vinyl wrap? And mind you this IS my first jeep, I'm a new owner and love it! And am always looking for things to do to her pics plsss

go for it! it's cheap. You only need patience... I did mine in about 50 hours not counting the removal of many bits and odds bolted on the body and I have no experience in any such work.

See the before, and after :




Planning to go either matte orange or olive drab next summer

Cheap heat gun, then have a kit for it with tools for $7. Normally I'm a stingy bastard, but with something that would be a major appearance haulover I would spend the extra on this.
Heat Gun - Dual Temperature Heat Gun, 1500W

How well does the vinyl come off, does it leave any residue?

I was thinking about wrapping mine in clear for scratch protection when wheeling.

Will definitely look into a heat gun! And I'm gonna keep u guys posted! I should have the wrap next week. I ordering it from amazon, I found that the 3m brand is good, it's some on there for 350. && that's for 375sq feet! Definitely well over enough for my rig. I need extra bec I'm planing on getting full doors as well. We ll see how it turns out!

Check out my post, there are a few details. I ordered one 30m x150cm roll, wasted some in discovering how it works and left with ca. 4-5m of vinyl. Guessing a pro might use only about 20m
