Default Don Nguyen | **Vinyl Roof Wrapping Services + Stickers/Graphics and more!**

My other thread was getting pretty long and old, so I decided to close it and create a new one, so people can more easily view my more recent/updated pictures. (Shoot me a PM for details on pricing, as pricing is different depending on finish, specific car, etc).

For those who didn't see my old thread, here is a link to it:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1855570

I've done hundreds of cars at this point. Here are just one or two quick pictures of cars that I've done recently in each type/finish, just to give you guys an idea of how it looks like and the quality of my work:

Gloss black -





Matte black (looks like the same car, but it's actually a different one) -







3M Di-Noc Carbon Fiber -





Tinted / smoked tail lights -

Before:


After:


For locals, I can supply the materials and do the entire installation at my location, for anything that you need to get done.

However, if you're a non-local (or someone who just wants/needs some material) and would like to give a DIY a shot, I can sell you just the material as well.

- Gloss/matte black roof vinyl (other finishes/colors are available upon request)
- Carbon fiber vinyl
- Black out window trim vinyl
- Interior/exterior trim
- Headlight/Tail light tinting
- Custom cut stickers/graphics
- Full car wraps
- Installations
- And More...

Let me know if you guys have any questions or if you are interested in anything.

thanks.

Thanks for everyone who was able to make it out to me in San Jose during my trip up there. I always do enjoy coming up to norcal to do vinyl work and hang out in the city after work I had people from all over norcal come out to me, ranging from Berkeley, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Vallejo, Sacramento, and from other cities around in the area.

My schedule was completely packed/booked this trip up and I know there were several people's cars that I weren't able to schedule or get to, so I may be planning another trip up there sometime in August. Tentatively I will be there the 20th - 25th, but I may only be working during the weekdays, which would be the 20th - 24th. After this trip, I do not know when the next time I will be able to make it back up to norcal, as my schedule is going to be fairly busy for the next couple of months after this. I will create a new thread for my August trip, but if you interested in getting your car worked on, e-mail me (donathon@gmail.com) to schedule/reserve an appointment slot/time. The sooner the better, as it is first come first serve.

There were a lot of cars that I worked on while up there, so it'll take a while for me to get around to being able to post pictures of all of them. The owner of this black Mercedes Benz E63 brought his car by to me to have me black out his chrome window trim with my gloss black vinyl material as well as lightly tint / smoke his head lights and tail lights. Took some up close pictures of the edges of the trim and lights to show the coverage and details for those who have asked or were interested in seeing more detailed pictures of my work. The tint / smoke film material that I use is fairly light, as to minimize the amount of light output that is reduced/decreased. It's also light enough where you should not get any hassle/issues from cops for them, as they almost resemble how a lot of factory tinted / smoked tail lights look now a days.

This car was the very last car that I did during my trip in norcal / Bay Area. The owner of this car drove out to me in San Jose from San Francisco. I was almost not able to get to this car, but luckily on my last day up there, I finished all of my other appointments early enough to leave just enough time to do one more car. He decided to have me vinyl wrap the roof of his Alpine White E46 M3 with the gloss black material to give it a factory / panoramic roof look. I think the black roof really makes the red interior pop even more.

I had a new silver Lexus CT200h come by to have me vinyl wrap his roof with the 3M di-noc matte carbon fiber material. The owner of this car was also from Irvine / Orange County. Took some close up pictures around the antenna area and side rails, just to show you the extent of the vinyl coverage and it looks up close. I think the roof accented the silver color of the car fairly well, especially since this carbon fiber finish has somewhat of a silver/gray tone to it, even though it is the black carbon fiber finish. The owner of this car also wants me to wrap his hood with the 3M dinoc carbon fiber material and tint his tails as well, so once I do those, I'll post some more pictures.

This Alpine White BMW E90 4-door 335i came by to have me vinyl wrap his chrome / brushed aluminum window trim with my matte black vinyl material. The owner of this car was also from Irvine / Orange County. In addition to doing his window trim, I also wrapped his roof with the 3M di-noc matte carbon fiber finish to really set off the car. We had the antenna fin cover painted matte black, which went fairly well with the matte finish of the roof. The matte black window trim and matte roof also ties in together nicely. Also as a reference point, the trunk spoiler is real carbon fiber. From further away the carbon fiber finish looks more of a solid matte / flat black finish, but as you get closer to the car/roof, the carbon fiber weaves/design becomes more visible, which is also another nice subtle touch/look.

Even on a more stock-ish car, blacking out the chrome / aluminum window trim can change the dynamics of the car's looks greatly. It won't necessarily give it a modified/aftermarket look, but it definitely adds to the car's look, while still looking factory. The owner of this car drove out to me in Orange County / Anaheim Hills to get the wrap done. Everything is done seamlessly and in one piece to retain that factory look and without making it seem like a wrap job. We went with the matte black on this car to still give it some contrast and accent the trim pieces, instead of going with gloss black which would have made it kind of disappear into the car's black paint.

Looking to make one more trip up to norcal / Bay Area again to do some vinyl wrapping for the cars that I were not able to get to the last time. Once again, I will be doing the vinyl wraps in San Jose. This may be the last trip for a while, since I am going to be fairly busy for the next couple of months / rest of the year for other events such as SEMA, etc.

Just a reminder. E-mail (donathon@gmail.com) me to schedule/reserve your appointment slots. Everything is a first come first serve basis. I may have an available time slot one minute and it may be taken the next (this has happened before), so the sooner you can figure out your availability and confirm it with me the better. People who e-mailed me in the past get priority, so if we can't schedule something for you this time, still e-mail me and I will keep you on my priority contact list for the next time I make a trip up to norcal / Bay Area.

Here is a link to my last norcal trip thread:
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...186&highlight=

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

These are going to be my available dates for appointments while up there:

21st
22nd
23rd
24th

27th *maybe - depending on if I fill up all the other available days/times first*

thanks.

This is one of the cars that I did some vinyl work on last month when I was up in norcal / Bay Area for vinyl wrapping. The owner of this car had me black out the chrome / aluminum window trim on his black E63 wagon. In addition to that, I also tinted his tail lights with my smoke film. Instead of tinting the entire tail light, I cut out the clear portion of the tail lights so that only the red is tinted / smoked. At first I wasn't sure how it'd look, but the contrast it ends up creating is pretty nice and I must say I like it. We also went with the matte black over the gloss black for the window trim, to provide some contrast to the gloss black paint and allow the trim pieces to still accent the car.

Before:

The owner of this car drove out to me in San Jose from Vallejo when I was up in norcal last time doing vinyl wraps. For this white Acura RSX, we went with the gloss black vinyl finish over the matte black to give it a more factory look. It gives it a nice continuous finish from the front windshield to the rear windshield. The black roof also sets off the black wheels fairly nicely as well.

The owner of this blue E90 335i sedan originally had his roof painted black and his carbon fiber hood painted gloss black in the center and body color on the sides. However, the condition of the black paint was no longer as nice as it once was when it was originally painted, so he had me vinyl wrap over it. Instead of just going with the gloss black again, he had me use the 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber material, to change up the look a bit. I ended up just doing the center of the hood in carbon, essentially just covering up the pieces/parts that were painted gloss black. He also originally had his window trim wrapped in gloss black, but the job wasn't that great, so I redid that for him. I believe the owner of this car was from Long Beach and drove out to me in Anaheim Hills / Orange County. You can see that this material is a lot glossier than the 3M di-noc matte carbon fiber vinyl, but you will still never get the depth that real carbon fiber pieces have, since those parts/pieces have a thick gel coat on top of the carbon to provide that look.

You can see that the

The headlights of this white E-class had become a little pitted and slightly faded over the years. So to freshen it up a bit and change up the look at the same time, I used my lightly smoked / tinted film that I also normally use on the tail lights for these head lights. The film covers up any rock chips, provides a glossy shine, and protects the headlights at the same time. A clear film could provide the same thing, but the owner wanted me to use the smoke / tint film for his car. It's a fairly light shade, so light output isn't really affected, which is a good thing. The owner of this car was from south orange county in Mission Viejo or so and drove out to me in Anaheim Hills to get the work done.

I took some in progress pictures to show you how it looks like from stock to tinted and I also took some pictures of how it looks inside in darker lighting and outside in brighter lighting, to show the differences between the two.

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.
