That is way too high unless you paid somebody to do it. The vinyl shouldn't cost more than $500.

Is the wing going on later?? I can imagine it would be hard to hide seams on the wing.

"That is way too high unless you paid somebody to do it. The vinyl shouldn't cost more than $500."

I am sorry but have you ever tried to source high end vinyl wrapping? 3m di noc runs almost 2 grand for a full size roll. And I have seen the half rolls sell on advantage sign supply for almost 1300 so 1k for a half roll is not a bad price. Do some research on pricing before commenting.

I got it from Metrorestyling.com. I see that you are from Jersey and the company that I got it from is in that area also.

Try again bro. A member here bought enough to do almost 3 cars for less than $2500. I have ordered full and partial rolls for friends and the prices are not what you paid. Sorry you over paid

Do your research in more than one place before you post

Thank you! The expense comes with the high quality grade vinyl from 3M. I wasn't about to do this with some cheap cheezy vinyl. This stuff comes with a 6 year outdoor warranty and an unlimited indoor warranty so the cost is definitely worth it in the long run.

We carry Di-NOC and it does cost a bit. It's not the same vinyl as your average "illest" or "fatlace" decal.

6 years doesn't sound right. I thought 3m put 9/10 year warranties on their vinyl products.

I have some tiny rust spots on my roof. I am thinking about sanding the crap out of them, coat with appropriate primer and vinyl wrap the roof. Anyone have some left overs for sale? Oh yea. I have to 2005 wrx wagon. Any thoughts?
