Wrapped my Insight

It took a month of Sundays, but I finally finished my project to wrap my Insight.
It was a hell of a lot more work than I anticipated, and I got terrible results, but I'm really happy with the color.



If you're thinking about doing it, I'd recommend getting a friend to help you and watching as many videos as you can on the process BEFORE you start.
I'm not sure, but I think a gas grill to heat up the bumper vinyl more evenly so you can stretch it out might be a good idea.

The insight needs 35' of 5' wrap

For my next project, I'm painting that green fender on the truck in the background.

The breakdown is my own work. First I measured things with a yardstick, then I wrote everything down and worked out how to place it on the vinyl, then I ordered/cut the vinyl, then I figured out I was 6 inches short in a handful of places and had to adjust the diagram so people in the future don't have to have the same seams I do.

Something I forgot to mention: This is the perfect time for an antenna delete, seeing as you need to pull the antenna to wrap the roof, and you cover the hole with vinyl anyway.

I imagine it's terrible now, but I have a stereo with USB because the head unit was missing when I bought the car.
On that note, anyone want to send me stereo brackets? Right now my $20 walmart stereo is just floppin' in the breeze.
Each square represents 6 inches, yeah, so a 2*2 square would be a square foot.

Anyway, have some pictures in the sun.
