    Default vinyl wrapping door pillars

    Hey guys

    I was after vinyl wrapping the door pillars as someone has caught one in a car park and it has got a few chips in it now

    Was just wondering how difficult it is to do, if they come off, and if its a pro job or if i can do it my self? was thinking carbon fibre effect.

    Also looking at doing a few more peices including my mirrors but problem with my mirror is they are a bit scuffed, would this show through the vinyl?

    Cheers guys

    I dont think it would show thorugh the mirrors pal and iv never tried to do it but im not even going to. Im paying to get my roof and side mirrors done, got a qwote for carbon 170 and gloss black 135, i think im going for gloss black though as my car is red :/

    Yeah i think its a good price. i wanted carbon fiber but i think it will look stupid on red im just not sure.
    Why dont you think about having it matt black, i saw a merc the other day fully wrapped in matt black and looked stunning.
    Obv gettin the whole thing would cost loadz but just gettin roof or bonnet or something shouldnt be to much.
    i got gwoted 240 for my roof bonnet and side mirrors done, and that was in carbon which is more. it was only 180 in matt black/ gloss black.

    All you need to do it is a heat gun £20 and the film which you can get from these guys.http://www.bonwyke.co.uk/ (they sell proffesional stuff that is much easyer to shrink round wing mirrors etc)

    For the price you got quoted you can get enough film to wrap your whole car pretty much. I would buy a roll of these guys and do it yourself. You have enough to master it and it peels off if you balls it up.
