I tried and only got through the trunk. I had the CSL one so it was difficult and curvy. You need a nice hot weather, and lots of patience and determination. I did it in a relatively cold day, and you'd have trouble. But theres a good learning curve on it, so becareful. Dont get your heatgun too close. I would suggest try alittle first, and see how it goes. I know a guy in NorCal that might do it for a decent price. He quoted me about $150 for a bumper. So I am assuming possibly 1k for the whole car if you got your own material. But my estimations maybe inaccurate. They said they've done vinyling for 10 years. I can give you his contact if you are interested.
