PICS: My "one-off" 3D vinyl transformation on my 1LE

FOLLOW THE STORY WITH THE PICS AS YOU SCROLL:

So.....due to something out of my control....I had to remove my OEM vinyl wrap. I love the look of the OEM matte black vinyl on white:


But it needed more, so......I added THESE within weeks of delivery(from Roger @ emblempros.com):


That brings us to the issue that required the vinyl removal.....SO removal of said badges and OEM vinyl:







...to get a fresh canvas:


After a couple days of thought I came up with an idea and ran with it....here is the process and final result:
Used my template:


Sketched in a location and size to keep proportions of the "1LE":


Taped in place for installer and laid down the "1LE":




This is the FIRST part of the final product: (keep scrolling though...theres MORE)






That wasn't enough....THIS was my final vision: Satin vinyl OVER the "1LE" lettering to leave just a subtle hint on the hood:






Then completed trimming for a final look:






More pics added per PM requests:
Another look at the Satin vinly over the lettering:


Close up of lettering height:


Difference between matte and satin vinyls: (removed OEM balled up LOL) - you can see the satin has a mild gloss to it:

My opinion went from "kill it with fire" to "I need that" in one set of pictures. Very nice.

Already expecting that....

I might have opened Pandoras Box. I intentionally went VERY simple with it but this will likely foster some insane "3D vinyls"


Think a just created a new trend. LOL

3D vinyls FTW!

The could have done it quite a bit cheaper just to rewrap....
but keep in mind they cut the lettering and installed(shop time); and I didnt use their vinyl that they then laminate...
I ordered high quality 3M vinyl and added an extra yard of material to ensure we had enough and for the lettering.

OTD it was $518.....for reasons not to be discussed I only paid $218.
