Amazon.com: 24" x 30 ft Roll of Matte Black Permanent Adhesive-Backed Vinyl for Craft Cutters, Punches and Vinyl Sign Cutters ? Vinyl Ease V0703: Arts, Crafts & Sewing

I think I am going to try this on my bumpers as soon as it warms up... will definitely make it much easier to stretch...
Find out if the vinyl is Cast or Calendered... you'd have an easier time with cast vinyl as it'll conform and stretch better. You might be better off getting something like this as it's more forgiving if laid down wrong.

Amazon.com: 5ft x 2ft (10 Sq/ft) 3M MATTE Black M12 Scotchprint Car Wrap Vinyl Film 1080 Series: Automotive
That probably is a better option... I know that the one I was looking at was the same thickness... It is a cheap project anyways... I am not sure if I will like the matte against the rest of the truck...

what do you think is easier to apply to those corners, plastidip or that wrap? I know I would like the finish of the wrap better than the plastidip, but those curves look like it could be a pain for the wrap.

I think I am going with Plastidip since I have no experience/skill with the vinyl.

From what I have been told, the vinyl is extremely pliable and will stretch to conform... I'm not a fan of rattle cans, I've always been horrible with those

I got a quote to wrap my front and rear chrome bumpers for $185. Don't know when I will get it done, but it's def. in the plans.

I think the wrap is so expensive because they only come in big ass sheets and they don't want to be left with a shitload of half sheets from other people.

People who do vinyl wraps are pretty amazing they can do some crazy things with it.

Anyone wrap the bumpers on a '14 white yet that can post pics? I see Matte, Satin & Gloss White on Amazon.

Thanks,

Chad

I went the plastidip route. Vinyl wrap in my area was ridiculously expensive. I also posted this pic in the plastidip thread, but here is the final product for reference...it's dirty in the pic

I'm thinking of spraying duplicolor bedliner on mine, but wonderering if the sensors will be able to work through it. Apparently they won't work through chrome which is why the rear bumpers are color-matched on the tundras with sensors.
I guess you're talking about the blind spot sensor?

I've been researching the crap out of this and everyone seems to have a different answer. I wanted a permanent solution so wrapping didn't seem to make sense. I don't want to change textures so line-x or powder coat didn't seem to make sense. So... my truck is currently getting the chrome (I think they said) acid dipped off and then they are going to color match paint. I get it back tomorrow. Hoping for perfection. $500

Is there a plasti dip option that is a close
Match to blazing blue? What about vinyl?
