Default Don Nguyen | Norcal Vinyl Wrapping Trip - Taking Appointments for July 2012

This is a message that I just posted on the forums, and I will just copy and paste it to make it simpler.

I can only take so many appointments a day, so time slots will be a bit limited. I'll be available Mon - Fri. I won't be available on the weekends to do any vinyl work. I am booking all of my appointments via e-mail at donathon@gmail.com E-mail with the date you are interested in coming by and I will let yo know what times I still have available for that day[/b]

Here are links to pictures of some of the things that I can do, separated a bit to help you view them easier. I am not limited to only what's seen/shown below. So feel free to ask if there is something you don't see but are interested in getting done.

Gloss / matte black roof wraps - http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...705158&page=16
3M Di - Noc / 1080 carbon fiber roof wraps - http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...704966&page=13
Blacked out window trim - http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...=734930&page=5
Smoked / tinted tail light pictures - http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...=705594&page=7

Tentatively, I'll put down these dates as when I will be up there this month of July:

12th
13th
16th
17th
18th
19th

Everyone who has e-mailed me already in the past will get priority as far as time slots goes, and everyone else who contacts me first will get priority after that. I may extend my trip, depending on how many appointments I can book.

thanks.

This is a longer post than usual, but I figured it is fitting because it showcases just some of the multiple types of vinyl services that I am able to do. On this silver Mercedes Benz CLS65 AMG, I vinyl wrapped the roof and roof spoiler in my matte black material, blacked out the chrome / brushed aluminum window trim in matte black as well, and lightly tinted / smoked the headlights as well as the turn signal lights on the side mirrors.

The matte black really gives the car an aggressive non-factory look as well as a very sleek look to the roof.

It is a bit ironic, because the owner of this car came down to me in Orange County from the Bay Area, and now I am going to be up in the Bay Area to do some vinyl wrapping. The owner of this car was planning on putting on matte black wheels later on, which will really go well and set off the matte black roof and window trim very well.

Note: The tail lights on this car were not tinted/smoked by me, only the headlights were.

Headlight before tinting / smoking:


Headlight after tinting / smoking:

I tentatively only have 1-3 spots left. I have two cars to confirm for 2 of those 3 spots, so if they do, then I'll only have one spot left available, which would be on Monday the 16th at 4pm.

Here is a white Scion / Toyota FR-S FT86 that I worked on. The owner of this car drove from San Diego up to me in Orange County / Anaheim Hills to have me tint the tail lights on his car with my clear red vinyl film material to tone down the altezza / chrome-ish tail lights that came on the car. Everything was done seamlessly using a single piece for each tail light. It changes the look of the car dramatically. This is how the cars should have came from the factory. Doesn't bother me though, at least it gives me another job/car to do and offer to you guys

Lighting to me is always one of the biggest look changers that you can do on a car. It is sometimes over looked, but by applying a clear red film like this over the tail lights completely changes the look of the car and even lightly tinting / smoking the tail lights can create a big effect in the car's look.

Thanks for all of the interest. As of a couple of days ago, I have completely booked my schedule for my July 12 - 19th norcal / bay area trip do some vinyl wrapping up there.

For those who were interested but were not able to schedule an appointment with me or if you saw this too late, feel free to e-mail me and I will put you on my norcal contact list for when I am up there again (TBA). I will be up there sooner than later if I can get enough cars together.

thanks.

Had some time this morning to resize these pictures of the first car that I worked on while up here. The owner of this white G37 coupe drove to me in San Jose from somewhere north of me to bring by his white G37 coupe to get the roof vinyl wrapped in my gloss black material. The gloss black roof really sets the car off, even on a stock or lightly modified car.
