    I did a quick search but did not find much...
    With members using vinyl for front valances, fender flares, hoods, and roofs, has anyone used vinyl for the rear chrome bumper? I would like to do this in flat black but would like to see someone that has done it already. Someone must have thought of this already.

    lol! I was thinking baout wrapping the dern tacoma myself since they want to charge so much! It's like here, i'll pay you $20 per hour.

    No really, i want to do it myself and i bet it would be better than having them cut into your paint with their exacto knives! Fook that. I seen a you tub video of some guys cutting around the PORSCHE Emblem on the front hood with their knives...Right into the paint around the emblem! I'm like no way.. aint happening here.

    Doin that "sheet" my self... get it ... Sheet :D:rolleyes:

    how much would it be? i might have to vinyl wrap my entire truck for advertising purposes, but it's going to cost quite a bit

    After seeing in person how hard it is to wrap things like bumpers, grills, etc. I don't think it will be an easy mod. You could do it, but I'm pretty sure it will slightly more difficult than the walk in the park you might think it is. All-in-all I think $20 per hour is a reasonable price for this type of work.
