Default Playing With Some Vinyl Wrap

I did some playing around with some vinyl wrap yesterday to see what I could do. Keep in mind, i've never done this before so I know its not perfect! I ordered a purple red wrap and they sent me the wrong product. I used it anyways. Its purple blue chameleon carbon fiber.

I just did the same. How are the lines in the hood holding up. Mine started to bubble. Thinking I stretched it too much. Yours looks pretty good!

Oh the lines in the middle bubbled up. So I cut them out. Now I have 2 red stripes. Kind of like it that way better.

If you guys use a needle (like for threading clothes) you can just poke a hole and press the air bubbles out.

Default Re: Playing With Some Vinyl Wrap

The problem isn't solely an air bubble in case. The hood lines are indents and once the vinyl warmed in the sun it shrink and lifted. I plan to ask someone with steadier hands than mine to try to cut the indents out and hope the don't shrink further. I think it will look okay then.
