Default Wrap and graphics done!

Perhaps not everyone's cup of tea but I really like it. Wrap and clear bra on front bumper done by AzPro and matching custom color/material hood stripe from Mike at VetteStripes.com.

Thanks everyone. Wanted to get rid of some of the !!! RED !!!

If anyone considering doing wrap or graphics might keep in mind it is easiest for them to have a seem to tuck the material into. The way I did the back it was tough to get a clean edge around the top and sides as no seem. Would have been much easier to go over the lip to the seem of the entire bumper piece but I prefer the way I had it done. They did not do any cutting on top of the paint so this makes it even harder.

The roof and mirrors were fairly straight forward and came out near flawless under very close inspection. The ducts are almost perfect too but a couple of lines to cut.
They really struggled with the hood to do it custom themselves ... much better to just order something pre-cut with computer as there are no hard lines to go off of and also have to keep the gap the same between the two pieces.

I don't usually like most wraps but I must say I do like this one. Wonder what it would look like with the headlight backgrounds colored black?

Thanks again everyone. Glad others like it as was nervous about it ... on the border of what I would ever consider doing as I am not exactly in my teens ... especially to a vette.

I knew it was gonna be ok though as was sitting at the graphics shop and a trucker (might have had a drink or two) from the truck stop next door came bursting in the front door to the lobby, "Who's vette is that !!?" ... mine ... OH, NO did he just run it over with his truck, maybe!? ... "Wow, that thing gave me a HARD ON when I walked by" ... LMFAO. Cute young receptionist did not know what to do as he hung out for another 10 minutes talking cars LOL.
