    OK cool. I imagine the roof and hood take a beating from the elements. I'd just like to do my roof and I wonder if it's much cheaper than painting.

    To get the most life from it there is a refresher that keeps it moist. Not good to just use armorall or something simaler

    This is the third hood I've done myself. Install took roughly 30 minutes.

    Hey guys, so my hood starting showing some bad clear coat. I looked around forever at wrap options. I ended up with this. It was my first attempt and I got a few small wrinkles, but it looks good enough for now. I will try again next summer and may try some more of the truck. I for sure need some new headlights as these hold more rain in than they keep out!

    I bet the knifeless tape made this way less of a headache, could it be used around the 3rd brake light and fin if one were doing their own roof?

    Make sure you are reading the warranty and lifespan info on the vinyl you are using to wrap your trucks . Some can only be left on for a few years before they become an insane amount of work to take off!!

    Is there a general website that everyone buys their vinyl from and reasonably priced? I will hate to shop from multiple places and continue to browse around etc.

    I usually buy from fellers. The cowboy hat seals the deal for me .

    And for the newbies who are hesitant to wrap your own truck check out www.wrapinstitute.com for some free videos on cut and wrap technique
