3M Matte Black Vinyl Wrap.

Has Anyone used this product? Seen them on plenty of other cars, but nothing on the Accord. Thinking about doing the middle of the front to see how it looks.
Getting a good discount from a shop in Austin, thats why I must ask


**Added some half A** Sample pictures, using plasti dip to kinda get a picture. (It's all off now)
Actually.... I wanted to do the whole middle section, but I got bit tired.

Whoa, that is weird! I can't imagine putting that onto an entire vehicle, ha. Could be neat, and you could pull it off if you wanted.

Where were you thinking of putting it?

Yeah, Im a bit skeptical about it haha. But for about 50 bucks I'd say it would not hurt.

I actully just though about doing the whole middle section of the front bumper.
Much like the "Evo"K kinda tested it with plasti dip to get a visual since I have so much of it...
Don't think I can post pics from my phone, but I'll post it up asap.

Dont waste your money on 3M branded film, its not made for a car even though I did my grille with it, only 4 year life span. I got a roll of this in case I want to wrap anything else

I compared it with 3M film and it looks 90% the same. Only the film I linked you to is actually for car wraps and has a 9 year life span out in the weather.

If I go though with it I'll Probley buy from them then.

Still thinking about if doing the middle of the front will look good or more like unfinished bumper....

When I had my 6th gen I broke the front bumper by hitting some stupid cone I was at college and only had basic supplies so I bondo'd, sanded, primered and then painted a big area black to make it look normal, ha.




Then I sold it a month later

I used to to black out the lower part of the rear bumper:



the real key is a completely clean, wax free surface - clean it with prep sol or acetone....

Another Austinite here.... Where are you getting the sweet hookup? I like Glen's back lower part. Plus I thought about blacking out the lower grille area.

It's at a place called Evolution Graphics. Not sure if ill go though with it yet but... after looking at Glen's lower bumper, I kinda like that! Not sure if Ill like it on a Black coupe tho. I'll test it with plasti dip!
