    I wanna see some black vinyl on the front bumper. Can you please post some pics and let me know how long you have had it and how its holding up? Where did you get it, how much? I was curious what everyday driving did to the vinyl. Thanks for the info, as usual, you all always help me out.

    Check out my build thread.
    I have had mine on for several years, I believe I was one of the very first to get the lower vinyl from sockmonkey. It is holding up great. Just a few minor spots where you can see red from stone chips, but you must be very close to notice it.

    I've only had it on for a month, so I can't comment on long-term durability.

    I used 3m di-noc carbon fiber vinyl. It seemed easier to used than regular vinyl as it is easily stretched with a little heat. It is also pressure sensitive so it doesn't stick until pressure is applied. Check out some installs on youtube. I need to post pics of mine.

    It's a bit tedious, but not terrible. If you've applied vinyl decals before it's not a big deal. Just need to take your time. It took me about an hour to do, with a spray bottle of soapy water and a hairdryer to help it conform to the curves on the bottom of the front bumper.
