if you were planning to wrap your car, why not go with a free color opion?

You have two great shops in NYC: NDVinyls and PHENOMenal Vinyl.
Tell them Taylor at TaGi Designs says Hi if you go to one of them.

I know both of the shops and they're great guys that do impressive work. You won't find anyone better in your area and their prices are fair. For a CF roof wrap I would estimate your cost being $300-$400. Get it done right the first time. If you DIY or get someone to do it for cheap you could end up paying for it twice.

Carbon Fiber isn't as easy to work with as regular colored vinyls so you'll want a pro to do the install

I sent my car to oneighty all the way from Springfield MA line, for custom quad exhaust. and they said they were too busy (even tho I had appointment) they send my car to Meineke or Madhadder or something. My exhaust looks like shit and when I messaged oneighty about this their response was "that is probably because you did not agree with our pricing so we sent you directly to the shop we deal with for all exhaust work. The difference is when we take the job there, we also supervise it and make sure it is done correctly. Sorry you had a bad experience, but you gotta pay to play"
VERY professional right? BTW they quoted me 500$ because I had my own tips I agreed to pay 600$.... I guess sh*t happens and this is how they deal their business.....

my take on this is if you want something done right, stand on top of them and watch them do it. otherwise you have no control and get lame responses from a bunch of teens at 180
