Thumbs up front bumper/valance vinyl pics/info

post your front bumper/valance vinyl pics here (no paint, please)

i have a few pics..... if the owners want me to remove them, just send me a PM

if you guys have any experiences you want to share, this would be the place.

it is a pain to do and get it "just right" but worth it IMHO


for inquiries: PM me, please

this is not a "kit" that you just slap on.

it is basically a rectangular sheet that must be conformed and trimmed to fit.
it is a pain because of the complex contours of the valance (up and down and side to side)

the flat vinyl is a little harder to conform than the gloss
(something about how the vinyl is manufactured...????)

Pardon the dumb question but what's the benefit to using vinyl instead of paint? I have a white Tacoma and like the looks of the wrap but I live in New England and can't imagine something like that holding up?

Just curious

The vinyl is not permanent so you can take it off for resale, if you don't like it, etc.
I've had mine for over a week and it has not shown no signs of letting up, even with this louisiana heat, humidity, and rain

When applying these lower valance decals, do you suggest using some kind of heat gun to make the flat vinyl a little more maliable around the contours towards the bottom? how much are these?
