One of the best job I've seen. Did you use a heat gun? What kind of vinyl?

Looks great. But I'm biased.

I've been telling people for a while now. The 3M 1080 is the best there is. Trying doing what you did with any other Vinyl out there.

Great job!

yeah I went and bought a 12x60" piece of CF vinyl to test with. I recently did the vinyl on my marker lights and tail lights. took a couple of trys to get it right, but still way cheaper then buying the pre-cut ones

Yeah i haven't really done too much with the light tints yet, I am planning on taking mine off and practicing after my vinyl comes in. What kind of light tint did you use on yours?

yeah the vinyl is addicting for sure lol. when you removed the fabric from your trim, what type of prep work did you have to do if any?

I wanna know this as well. Looking to either do this or paint mine, vinyl would be cheaper, but I have terrible luck with vinyl bubbling up and things. Did you apply dry or with soapy water?
