    I want to wrap my 4 fenders and the hood scoop on my white 2019 trd sport 4x4 tacoma but I am not sure how much wrap to buy

    I found this link on ebay for the hood scoop decal :

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/2016-2019-...h=item3b22a59d19:g:v4AAAOSwe~lb7rW3:rk:6:pf:0

    Anyone give me a review on this decal?

    and

    the 3m black matte wrap on ebay as well:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/3M-1080-M1...gu1FpyzNCEKH1G-prw:rk:1:pf:0&var=650920696879

    Can anyone recommend the amount of wrap I should buy for the fenders?

    Dude... Take a tape measure to the fenders/bedsides. Account for the curved shapes and round up. Vinyl wraps are sold by the foot on 5' wide rolls.

    Straight up - if you can't measure this yourself, you're better off paying someone else to do the vinyl wrap job. I say this as a guy who has been vinyl wrapping his entire truck all week - it's not easy.

    You are going to need to remove your fender flares, tail lights, headlights, antenna mount, bedside caps, gas cap cover (which is riveted in place, drill/cut/punch the rivets out and replace with bolts) at a minimum to get a decently clean vinyl wrap job.

    Just buy a big roll. I got cheap stuff off ebay 30” x 10m for $50. I did a bunch other projects as well and gave some to a fellow tacoma owner to put on his hood. Holds up incredibly well when dine right ABBF2C9C-73EC-4AEA-9C82-5CEE9D76F131.jpg4D0B6AEF-7DD4-4E49-8F7D-88C509ACDB38.jpg15F898A5-72A2-4E0C-B9B1-B8B80E95843F.jpg

    I also vote for grabbing a big roll of vinyl. I did my tailgate first which was a tougher part to wrap for the first time, then I wrapped the hood and hood scoop. I used a 3x5 ft of matte black vinyl, and knifeless tape.
