Ex.
The hump can be tricky for a beginner and vents on the hood tend to break

Bumpers- self explanatory.

Doors, if you are comfortable taking the door handles out

Fenders, the deep recess of the M vent can be tricky for a beginner. Overstretch and you'll have lifting/pocketing

The trunk if you are comfortable with removing tails, trunk button, tricky to do in one piece, can do three pieces with seams.

Leaves the quarter panel to front pillar but that's about 12ft of vinyl to deal with.

That leaves the side skirt but that's such a waste to wrap with the length.


Not saying it can't be done. But if you feel like trying it out, worse situation you can just peel it.
What size do you buy? 5x60?
60/65ft.
Better to have some left over for make up or touch up than be stuck waiting with one panel not wrapped

I thought leaving one panel unwrapped was cool? Ok, 65 feet it is!
