Default 3m dinoc

Hi guys,

had the afternoon off work today, i was under orders to do some decorating but i got bored so decided to finally have a play with some dinoc vinyl i bought ages ago. Iv been a bit scared of cocking it up as its so expensive, hence why its been in the cupboard for ages, but anythings better than rubbing down skirting boards so i thought id have ago at the flyscreen to break myself in gently. I was intending to wrap the rear tub and side panels, but it may end up looking a bit drab, what do you think? Turned out pretty good, a lot easier than i thought it would be, a bit time consuming mind.Its a bugger for fingerprint marks though. I did lose track of the time and ended up in trouble with the missus but hey ho.... macdonalds for me tonight

Good job, Like it. It seems great results can be achieved with the 3M products with a bit of time and patience.

It was easy enough to do, the hardest part was doing the long side panels by myself. If you've got enough, you can get carried away like I did and do the tunnel top, wing mirrors, bonnet stripes and anything else I could think of. Actually I'm thinking of ditching the bonnet stripes, as it was really hard to get it looking straight over the bonnet bulge, and it's the only part I thought looked pants after I'd done it! Other than that, I have. Othing but praise for the stuff!





Cheers

Adrian
