Started the Matte Black DIY Vinyl Wrap. Pics and write ups.

Hello everyone,

if you havent heard, i was planning a while ago to make the car matte black, you can check out the thread here

http://www.chargerforums.com/forums/...101&highlight=

Now me and my bestfriend started doing it 2 days ago and we are almost 100% finished, we have the trunk lid, 2 front doors, hood and roof done so far.

today we will be doing the two back doors. i will be posting a bunch of pics and before and after shots once i get back from work.

stay subscribed as i will be updating this thread daily! its turning out really REALLY nice and it wasnt as hard as we thought it would be. the only difficult thing we think is going to be is the front bumper (because of all the curves, for example getting in near the fog lights)

The car is looking sleek. i cant WAIT.

the difficulty i would rate on 8 on 10, 10 being hard.. installing a CAI would be a 4 for example.

the car is looking REALLY REALLY good so far. i know im teasing you guys cause im not showing you any pictures but im still at work. the process will take anywhere from 1-4 days. you just NEED paitence. for example we had to redo the roof twice because there was a couple of marks on the vinyl, but over all its going to be SICK when its done. ill see if i can upload some pics now.

this is when we finished the hood, and started trimming the roof



this is when we finished the hood, roof, and trunk lid, i was so happy i was able to get rid of the stupid looking spoiler, i actually hate that thing.




this is what im most excited for:



BC racing coilovers and eibach front sway bar !

the car will look mean, and handle like a stealth bomber, im so excited. more pictures will be uploaded later! ENJOY
