No place had it so I ordered it online. also make sure u have plenty of very large clamps I used 6 36" clamps
Where'd you order it from? Could you PM me the link or site, I'm not even sure what I'm looking for and I'd like to have everything in place for when I do finally order these that way I can just get right to the install.

Its called a "600 ml handheld cartridge Dispenser" and it looks like pic below. I went into napa and they gave me a vendor website, that i cant find at the moment. and it shipped to napa where i had to pick it up. Try calling a napa and asking them where to order it from. Its basically is a half size, double barrel caulk gun that mixes the compounds.

I just went to a sign shop (sign-a-rama) and had them put on a matte black piece and cut it down after. They quoted me on 1 hour $80, and it took them 5 hours to do the front piece and the taillight piece, But, they only charged $80 total.

From recent experience get it done professionally like Austin did..... That stuff is way hard to apply in that large of a section to a curved section...

No doubt, I watched the guy do it and he gave me tons of tips, but even he had a very very hard time putting it on the very curved front lip, only using one piece of vinyl. Also, take off your lower grille before you do it.

Well i bought a hotwheels camaro from the store, sanded it, painted it with synergy paint, cleared it, and drilled a hole in the back of it. Simple as that.
