    Right on. On topic though I remember seeing pics of lower valences that people derped and it didn't hold up to the rocks, and car washes and started to peel off. I wouldn't trust it on the entire vehicle.

    That's the thing about derp. If it gets messed up, peel it off and do it over again. :p

    Hate to say it but it looks pretty good. I would like to see one in person before doing it. Looks a little blochy from the side angle. Theres probably some orange peel and overspray too. With chips, fading and tears would need to probably recoat at least once a year.
    Its either that or spend $2k on a custom wrap.

    Hell, I think i'm going to do it on my old 95. For a few hundred bucks, it couldn't hurt. At least make it look a little better for a while till i get a good paint job on it.

    We're gonna do it for shitngiggles if nothing else. The paint job on my yota is HORRIBLE right now and i'm going to paint it eventually, just gotta take time to do all the prep work and don't feel like doing it. Figured this would give me some time till i get around to doing it. If it last a year or two i'll be happy. I know a few guys that have done their Jeeps and it holds up pretty well.

    So....I'm not opposed to doing this.....am I weird?
    I think it's a good alternative to the $2k+ wrap that can't be removed
