Contact cement or super glue is your friend. I also pulled the material over the edges to make sure the adhesive had good contact with the object I was wrapping.

If you plan on keeping this as a permanent solution, you could also create micro abrasions on the object with a Scotch pad. Could always go back and plasti dip!

There is a specific adhesion promoter that is recommended for DiNoc.
It's called 3M 94. I couldn't find any locally and ended up ordering from a boating supply house (cheapest). I did a couple of pieces on my interior without promoter and they started to curl after a few days.

As many have said, a little heat does wonders. The DiNoc is pretty tough to do anything with cold but just a little warmth from a heatgun, hairdryer, whatever, and presto! Super easy.
Here is a youtube video of someone covering a sink in DiNoc, I wouldn't have thought this possible...

Get a couple of small pieces and have some fun with it.

I used this and it's "ok". It dries VERY quickly so it's a bit difficult to work with especially since you have to switch from the 3M 94 stick/glue to the heat gun to work the Di-Noc over the edges or whatever.

Thanks for the headsup, I just got my can in the other day and haven't experimented with it yet. With daytime temps around 100 here, probably gonna be a real mutha to do any outside dinoc-ing.

Just so you guys know, you can go to 3m's website and get free samples of any of their di-noc patterns. It's under the architectural coverings section. I got 7 pieces from them. They have a matte metallic silver that I'm thinking about wraping my car in.

Not bad, but don't be afraid to pull it once it's warmed up. Does wonders to remove the sharp fold points.

cheers

yeah, good job, but that would drive me biznana's!

So luckily, all you'd have to do is the vents a cup holder to re-match the pattern.

Other then that... good job!

Gave it a try, I think it looks nice. Will probably redo the dash piece, has some small problems and bubbles.
