Bergers style hood wrap?

I am looking to put the berger style hood wrap along with the hash marks on my car. My car has the stock hood on it. Nightshade makes the complete wrap for $350 which is not bad but I am fairly new to vinyl. The only items that I have wrapped are the emblems on the car so tackling a hood seems like it may be a little much for me. I have a vinyl shop near me that says they can do the design and put it on the car for $515. They mostly do full wraps and print, some of their work is throughout the town and looks good as a full car wrap. They have also done a few drag cars with full wraps. Just looking for some response on what you guys think on the situation.

Maybe I need to explain what a begers style hood wrap is. Its the full hood wrap that has the cut out with the hash marks just on the drivers side.

Anyone buy a kit from knightshades how difficult is it to do yourself? Or are most just letting local shops put the vinyl on for them? Any help, advice, anything would be much appreciated.

There have been MANY people on the forum who have installed their own NS kits, I hope they chime in for you.

As for the other shop, make sure they are using 3M 1080 Wrap series Vinyl for that cost.

This is a thread started by a member installing stripes for the first time ever. Take a look and hopefully it will help you.

How to install NS-1 Stripes


The 3M 1080 Vinyl we use has Control Tac and Air Bubble release technology. We are here for any question we can answer.

Thanks for the post and link, I have seen that link before. Seems simple enough but still something about covering the entire hood at one time scares me a little. They are using the 3M 1080 vinyl not sure if it has the control tac and air bubble release technology though. They said that I may be able to do this myself but if I mess up I'm out $350. Not going to be the end of the world, but deffinitly going to suck.

I definitely don't want to force feed you here, so you will have to make the decision on your own. But the piece is pre cut and you and a friend should have no problem doing this. But either way, I wish you luck!
