Best mod for white cars.

My dad and I's second attempt was a success. After watching a couple youtube videos and a 90% first attempt; we knocked it out of the park.

I 100% recommend everyone wrap their drip rails too. The first attempt we didn't wrap the rail, but made sure we did it on second. Also the sharkfin was a biatch to remove and wrap, but necessary to complete the look.

Highly recommended to DIY this as it will take less than 2 hours and material cost is dirt cheap!

Used Avery gloss black.

Avery's a great choice

Yeah for sure, it was really easy to lift off and place back, I think if I were to do this again I'd go with 3M just to compare and contrast.

I think it's possible, it will take a little longer and you'd probably have to use those little magnets they sell to hold the film 100% in place. But yeah, it's gonna be tough

Good choice! I think every light colored car should have a black roof

Yes sir! very forgiving material!

And we'll see how it lasts under florida heat, so far so good!

There shouldn't be any fade until 5+ years.

Yes sir, was a pain in the butt and had two attempts before getting the final one down just right!

Worth the trouble though, I really didn't want any seams on it.
