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?

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?

There is a shop here that does that and I asked them to wrap the black pieces around the silver-ish parts but they said they couldnt since the surface is textured and not flat...

Have you tried to wrap any of the textured parts?

i would recommend that you sand it with some high grit paper

i got it from a buddy of mine. and water w/ soap is the best way to go, but depends on the piece that you are wrapping
