So you think you can wrap?

Turns out yes, yes I can wrap you just need a lot of time and patience. Shoutout to my girlfriend who helped me from start to finish over the course of 8 days. Finally have the m3 the way I want it.
Materials used: vvivid vinyl gt3 Rivera blue 5x55
70% isopropyl alcohol to prep the paint.

Awesome job, I struggled wrapping my trim let alone a whole car. Mad props! What coilovers are you running and any spacers.

Looks like santorini blue. Love it

How does it look up close? Any creases or bubbles? Looks great to me.

Thanks a lot guys it took absolutely forever but in the end it was worth it to me. I've seen lots of "professional wraps" up close and this is far better than theirs *cough cough* dreamcarswrapusa. No bubbles or creases and that's why it took us 8 days to do it. Now there are lots of shops that could do just of good of a job and definitely faster but I didn't want to spend thousands if I could do it myself.

8 days is not that long for such a performance, bud; especially for a non professional.

I used a lot of heat. I had the heat gun sitting on the floor jack on and when I needed heat would just move it in front of the heat. Start on the flat front of the handle then work your way towards the center of the handle
