Nice! Unless you need to park it in a Kroger parking lot.

It looks very clean.

I took my fiberglass bed cover to get it painted matte black. Should look great with the black trim and dark gray paint.

Thanks. It was cleanest and best maintained of all the ones I looked at.
I try not to park it in busy parking lots because of that.

FINALLY got around to wrapping my door pull trim pieces... I've been driving for over a month now without them and it has looked like someone broke in and took pieces out of the truck. I was so used to shutting the door by the upper window that the last couple days with door pulls completely has me numb to using them.

Without a doubt this was one of the harder wraps I've ever done. It's because of the inner/outer complex curves it's a freaking nightmare to do. I wasted $65 worth of vinyl the first time thinking that I could do this myself with zero help.... I was 100% wrong.

If you are going to tackle this you need 4 hands...literally. I had my wife help by controlling the heat gun with one hand as I applied and contoured the vinyl then at times she'd use her other hand to hold a piece as I was moving stuff about.

Did driver side first and of course hit some problems. I started at the smaller inner curve by the handle first and went up. It didn't turn out right. Passenger was MUCH better by starting at the bigger portion and working down towards the smaller inner handle part. I am re-doing the driver side tomorrow. Should go a lot smoother. Driver side took about 1.5 hours to do and the passenger took about 45 minutes. I chuck up the first time because my wife didn't know or do this before so she was hit and miss with the heat gun as far as too close at times and or not knowing how this works...lol Passenger side much smoother. Driver side again should be as quick or quicker than passenger now.

If I have any left over I am going to do the A-Pillars. I will more than likely spray the rear pillars by the seatbelts black with the vinyl spray that I did my sun visors with since they are a low to no touch area and black will blend much nicer with the wrap than the ugly gray.

Gotta be honest, they look really good, with the problems you were describing, i was expecting something a little less professional looking! You should click here if you haven't already

Feel like I've been neglecting her, with the countless problem my previous gms had, I haven't had to do anything for a while it feels odd lol

Figured I'd use the remaining amount of 3m wrap I had so I wrapped my a-pillars and mustang dome housing. I haven't installed anything yet but I'm wondering if the a-pillars are going to look out of place once bolted back up and the rear b-pillars are gray... I am tempted to use the duplicolor vinyl/plastic spray that I used for the head visors to make them black but not sure or not...

I thought about ordering my vinyl but honestly I don't think I want to.
