By stockers you mean what exactly? (excuse my ignorance lol)
I'll most likely be changing the tails eventually and maybe doing something diff. with the roof like CF wrap or gloss. It's gonna chill the way it is for now though

It may vary depending on how you go about it. I got help at my buddy's shop so i hit them off with some cash for helping me out... that along with the cost of the vinyl ($600) and misc. shit... spent about a grand altogether. beats $3k+ at any vinyl shop. but you sure pay for the money saved with time consumption/sweat/blood/tears in the process lmao. Wrapping those bumpers was one of the most challenging tasks i've ever faced. We almost gave up a few times. But if you're up for the challenge i totally recommend it! my car breaks more necks than a girl with a fat ass in a mini skirt lol...

Well, since you begged.... Yeah, those taillights are really ricey. Just kills it for me. The wrap job I am impressed with. Fantastic color choice (I love blue) and looks like a job well done, really. But the tails look kinda like if someone put a huge wart on Cameron Diaz's nose, right in the center of the bridge of the nose. And I don't mean just like, a small wart, but like, a huge crooked thumb kind of wart.

(Disclaimer: I'm mostly joking/trolling. But jokes aside, good work, good effort, my only negative comment mirrors most of the others regarding the tinted taillights.)

lmao!!! good way to put it... I'm all for the LCI lights which'll have to wait till im ready to spend more money on the car. If you saw the car in person you'd probably say "oh! doesn't look as bad" But it's cool, i'll keep rolling with the punches on here lol

Looks great so far! Can't wait to see it all done!

As for the tails, everyone has their own taste. As long as you like it then that's all that matters!
