All i have to say is it is very unlikely the vinyl will last very long with the heat from the engine.

It is going to go from bad to catastrophically fugly very quickly.

If you are set on doing this make sure you degrease the surface thoroughly before adhering the vinyl.

Whats wrong with the stock look..a little detailing and it wows.

I wouldnt spend on this and chance a bad outcome, especially with so many other mods to consider oustide of the engine bay

Worst thing that's going to happen is you may end up with some stray adhesive on those parts when you remove the vinyl. No biggie.

sooner or later it will start to peel... so having to put a vinyl in the engine bay is ok but long run will just ruin the part you put it on...

dont ask how i know this...

Smog is air pollution which in Los Angeles is sometimes really bad. Vog is smoke from a volcano which in Kona Hawaii is sometimes really bad.

i got out of Kansas while I could. Though lot so of girls in short skirts at the Power and Light district...

Nothing wrong with the wrap, but won't last long term as others have said. Not worth it in my book. Needs more go, not more show.

good vinyl (even under heat) should last a long time 5-7 years is normal. Cheap stuff will def wrinkle like Shrinky-Dinks! (who remembers them?)

Only issue is that it will look cheap and people here, including myself, will hate on it.
