I have filled most of my available slots. I do have a handful more available. I'll update the thread tomorrow with what time slots I still have for each of those days.

This is a return customer. He's had me do a couple of his cars in the past before as well. For this car, I blacked out the chrome / brushed aluminum window trim that goes around the windows for this black Mercedes CL600 v12. We went with a matte black finish for this car. It's a fairly big car for a two door, so the window trim actually covers over a large area of the car. In addition to the window trim, I also blacked out the chrome trunk handle piece in the rear. In this photo set I included a lot more up close pictures around the edges, ends and around where the rubber weather stripping areas are.

Even as much as I have seen it, I still think black roofs on white or lighter colored cars always looks great. Provides great contrast and in this case, it goes fairly well with the black wheels on the car. The owner of this white Subaru STI sedan brought his car to me to have the roof wrapped with my gloss black vinyl material. The owner of this car was also from around San Jose / Bay area, so he was fairly close to where I was doing the vinyl installs at while up in norcal. Subarus are one of those cars that could pull off the matte black or gloss black look fairly well. So even if the owner had decided to go with my matte black vinyl material, I think it would have looked just as good.

Here's one of the cars that I did some vinyl work on the other day up here in norcal / Bay Area. The owner of this white E46 325i sedan brought his car by to have me vinyl wrap his roof with my matte black vinyl material. It's not as often that BMW or Euro guys in general go with the matte black finish, so this is a good example for those who were thinking or considering getting it done on your cars. The roof was plastidip before, but the vinyl provides a much smoother end result and finish, and is just as easily reversible.

Today is my last day for my August trip up here in norcal / Bay Area. I had this white Mercedes Benz C300 sedan come by earlier this week to have me do some vinyl work on it for him. He drove down from Napa to me in San Jose to get the work done. The owner of this car had me vinyl wrap the roof and the side door pillars in the 3M di noc matte carbon fiber and also had me black out the chrome on his window trim and rear trunk handle piece with my matte black finish vinyl material. In the darker lighting and from further away, you can't really make out the carbon fiber weave too much in the pictures. Matte black along the window trim went well with the matte carbon finish. The carbon pillars turned out pretty nice too.

Seems like there are a lot of fans of wagons, so here are pictures of a blue E46 325i wagon / touring that I worked on recently. The owner of this car actually lived down the street from me in Irvine / Orange County, so I dropped by their house to do the vinyl wrap. The owner wanted me to black out his chrome / aluminum window trim. I went with the matte black to give it more of an aggressive look and it went well with all of the other matte black weather rubber pieces that lined the window trim and the overall look of the car.

Thanks for everyone who was able to make it out to me while I was up in norcal / Bay Area doing vinyl wraps. I only had one car that cancelled on me without any notice (which is a first out of all of my trips that I have been/gone up there), but other than that everything went good as usual.

This was one of the last cars that I did while up there, and I was a bit excited, so I forgot to take some before pictures of it. The owner of this white Subaru STI wagon / hatch brought his car to me to have me vinyl wrap the roof of his car with my gloss black vinyl material. Subarus are one of those cars that can pull off the matte or gloss black look. Since there is no sunroof on this car, it gives it a very smooth and continuous result / look.

These aren't the best pictures in the world, since the owner of this car came later in the day and there was a lot of work that he wanted done on his car, so by the time I finished, it was already fairly late in the day. The owner of this car drove from San Diego up to me in Anaheim Hills / Orange County to get the vinyl work done. He wanted me to vinyl wrap his roof, roof spoiler, front splitters, side B pillars, and rear lower bumper diffuser all in the 3M di noc matte carbon fiber vinyl material finish. Personally, I do not like wrapping rear diffusers, but since the owner of this car was getting a lot of other work done, I decided to do it for him/his car.

Front splitters:


Roof spoiler:




Rear diffuser:




Roof:








Side pillars:

Another car I did on my most recent trip up to norcal / Bay Area to do vinyl wrapping. I liked this car, because it was a unique color and different from the black or white cars that I am usually working on, so it's a nice change of pace. I believe it was a BMW E90 330i or 328i sedan, and I don't know the exact name of the color of this car, but it was almost greenish/silverish/blueish in different lightings. For this car, we went with the matte black vinyl for his window trim over the gloss black to match the rubber around the window trim and his B pillars, which were also matte black already. I think the final results turned out great. Everything is done seamlessly without any awkward seam lines in random places and everything gets tucked in underneath the weather stripping.

Went over to my friend's shop (Serge @ BenzWorks in Huntington Beach / Orange County) to tint / smoke the tail lights on this white CLS63 AMG. I only tinted / smoked the clear portion of the tail lights and I left the red alone. This gives the car slightly more character with just the subtle change in shade of the clear portion of the tail lights. It's a fairly light shade, so it almost feels factory looking, so it goes well even on cars that are more lightly modified or more on the stock-ish side.

Here's one of the 350z's that I did some vinyl work on while up in the bay area / norcal. The owner of this silver 350z wanted me to vinyl wrap his roof in my gloss black material. His windshield, side windows, and rear windshield were also tinted. He wanted to give it a continuous flow / look from the roof to the front/rear windshield, which is what we got with the final results once everything was done. It looked good. The gloss black matched nicely with the glass.

I thought I had posted pictures of this car already, but I guess I haven't yet. This was from my earlier/prior trip to norcal / Bay Area to do vinyl wrapping. The owner of this car originally was only going to have me vinyl wrap his roof in the 3M di-noc carbon fiber material, but he also ended up having me do the top of his trunk with the 3M di noc matte carbon fiber material as well. The hood and rear trunk lip spoiler are real carbon fiber pieces, so that'll give you an idea of how the two compare/matches up. In addition to his roof and trunk, I also wrapped his chrome / brushed aluminum window trim with my matte black vinyl material. I forgot to take more detailed pictures of that, but you can kind of see it in the roof pictures. There were still a couple of bubbles that were working themselves out when I took these pictures, so you may notice it in some of the pictures.

Although white cars may look the best with the gloss black roofs, black cars definitely benefit one of the most when it comes to getting their chrome / brushed aluminum window trims blacked out. I believe the owner of this car is also on this forum. The owner of this car brought their jet black E46 325i (or it was a 330i) coupe to have me wrap his window trim in my matte black vinyl material to give it that shadowline look. We went with the matte black to get that slight contrast. Overall, I think it turned out great and changed the look of the car dramatically. Even on a more stock-ish car, doing this still benefits and changes the overall look of the car quite a bit.

I don't think a lot of people know, but I also have/use a clear yellow transparent film as well. Normally I use this film for fog lights, etc, but the owner of this white 350z wanted to have me wrap the headlights of his car with my transparent yellow vinyl film material. I know this is definitely not for everybody, but this will at least show you what my transparent yellow film looks like. The owner of this car was from around Long Beach I believe and drove out to me in Anaheim Hills / Orange County to get the vinyl work done.

Another car I did in one of my previous trips to norcal / Bay area. The owner of this silver Mercedes Benz CLS65 AMG had me vinyl wrap the roof of his car with the 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber vinyl material. In addition to the roof, I also vinyl wrapped his chrome window trim with my matte black vinyl. Blacking out the window trim really complimented the roof and also dark colored wheels that the car already had. As comparison, the side B pillars have real carbon fiber overlays on them.

The chrome / brushed aluminum on the window trims of this silver BMW E46 325i sedan was starting to fade/oxidize. So instead of buying replacement trim pieces or trying to paint them, the owner of this car had me vinyl wrap them with my matte black vinyl instead. This was a quicker, simpler, and overall better solution. We went with the matte black to match the matte finish on the wheels. I did this car while I was out over at my friend's shop in Huntington Beach / Orange County.

Did the roof of this gray / silver BMW 328i E92 coupe in my gloss black vinyl material. I also vinyl wrapped the chrome / aluminum window trim of this car at the same time, but we went with the matte black finish for that instead of the gloss. The owner of this car was from around Los Angeles / Torrance and drove out to me in Orange County to get the work done. The combination of both the black roof and blacking out the window trim really changed the looks and dynamics of the car quite a bit, even with just those two simple things.

I had this black Mercedes Benz C63 coupe black series come by to have me tint the clear portion of his tail lights and also black out the chrome / brushed aluminum window trim on his car. For the window trim we went with my matte black material to give it that contrast and more aggressive look and for the tail lights I only tinted / smoked the clear portion of the tail lights. Tinting / smoking only the clear portion gives it a very factory look. Even though my tint / smoke film is already fairly light, this is even a further step closer for being an OEM+ type look for those who are trying to achieve that look.

I held off using these pictures for a while, since they weren't the best pictures ever, but they are a bit different, so I figured I might as well post them. I am going to post two different cars. The first car, a 2012 black Honda Accord, the owner wanted me to wrap the top chrome grill piece in carbon fiber. Just to make note, the owner supplied their own carbon fiber vinyl material, and I have no idea who the make/manufacturer is. I just know the quality was fairly poor and the adhesive was separating itself from the vinyl from me just sticking it on the surface of the grill once and picking it up again to readjust.

Before:


After:




This second car is quite a bit different from most of the standard set of cars that I am used to having come by. I believe this was something like a 1992 black Acura Legend. The owner of this car wanted me to vinyl wrap the roof of his car with the 3M di-noc matte carbon fiber vinyl material. The roof had some slight paint imperfections/oxidation, and he wanted me to cover over those and also provide a slight change in the look of the car at the same time (originally we were just going to wrap the roof in gloss black). I took these pictures during overcast, so you can't see much details in the weave. However, this kind of provides you guys with an idea of how the vinyl material looks like in low lighting. From further away it looks more matte/flat and then as you get closer you start to see the weaves.

Here is a new white Toyota / Scion FRS that I vinyl wrapped the roof with my gloss black vinyl material. We went with the gloss black finish to give it a factory look. The owner of this car drove out to me in Anaheim Hills / Orange County to get the roof wrapped.

Some of you may notice, I don't necessarily post pictures in any particular order. I just go through what I have and pick from random unless requested otherwise by the owners of the cars or people who want to see something specific.

I worked on this car when I was up in norcal / Bay Area last time. This grey / silver Mercedes Benz came by to have me wrap the chrome / brushed aluminum window trim and rear trunk handle piece with my gloss black vinyl material. In addition to the window trim, I also tinted / smoked the tail lights lightly with my film specifically made/designed for use on exteriors. The lighting kind of makes it hard to really notice the gloss finish on the window trim, but hopefully you can still make it out and get an idea of how it looks like.

I don't just tint / smoke lights. I also have clear / transparent vinyl film materials that can be used such as red, yellow, etc. I believe the owner of this white Hyundai Genesis coupe was from around Riverside county and drove out to me in Orange County to get his tail lights tinted with my red clear film. He wanted to get rid of the chrome area in the center of his tail lights and to make the tail lights look like they came from the factory a solid red. The end results made a big difference in the appearance of the car. It's probably the simplest and easiest solution that you can do to matching the red of the tail lights.

Another car that I did while up in norcal / Bay Area. The owner of this red BMW E90 325i sedan had me vinyl wrap his roof in the 3m di-noc matte carbon fiber material. After doing the roof, he decided to have me also lightly tint / smoke his tail lights. Took some pictures of the tail lights inside and also outside to give you an idea of how it looks in different lighting conditions. Everything is custom cut / trimmed to the car, to make sure fitment is perfect and covers the whole / full area unlike pre cut pieces, which usually end up being a bit short around the edges.
