Overview:
- Interior trim 3M 1080 black gloss carbon fiber vinyl wrap
- Tinted / smoked rear tail lights
- Gloss black roof vinyl wrap
- Gloss black rear diffuser vinyl wrap
- Gloss black window trim chrome delete

A lot of vinyl work was done on the outside and inside of this white BMW F10 540i sedan, but most of this post will be primarily focused on the wrapping that was done on the interior of the car. I tried to take pictures in a manner that allowed you to more easily see how the before/after looked like with the carbon fiber wrap done over the factory wood finish. To give the car a more aggressive look, we went with the black carbon fiber on the interior. The carbon fiber on the interior nicely tied in with the carbon fiber accents that were already on the exterior of the car. The owner of this car was in Irvine Orange County and I went out to him to do all of the wrap work on his car.

- Matte black rear badges plasti dip

I really liked the way this new 2018 Lexus LX570 SUV turned out from blacking all of the chrome trim accents on it. It's not as common to see SUVs getting vinyl work done, but it should be more common, because it really gives them a much more aggressive look that isn't normally expected when you look at or think of an SUV. Everything that was done on the car was still subtle enough that for anyone who didn't know how the car looked like before would have just thought that the car came that way from the factory. The owner of this car was in Cerritos Orange County and I came out to them to do the vinyl wrap work on this car.

Overview:

- Gloss black window trim vinyl car wrap
- Gloss black lower door trim panel vinyl car wrap
- Gloss black lower rear bumper vinyl car wrap
- Gloss black lower front bumper vinyl car wrap

For this brand new black Audi Q5 SUV, we blacked out the majority of the silver/chrome trim accents that were on the car, which included the rear bumper lower diffuser section, window trim, lower door trim pieces and the small center lip on the front bumper of the Q5. We left the badges and grill for now, but eventually the grill will most likely be blacked out as well, to finish off the black out look. The owner of this car was in Lake Forest Orange County and I came out to them to do the wrap work.

Overview:

- Gloss black window trim vinyl wrap
- Gloss black mirror and mirror base vinyl wrap
- Gloss black door handles vinyl wrap
- Gloss black front grill vinyl wrap
- Gloss black lower front bumper vent slats vinyl wrap
- Matte black side fender markers
- Matte black rear trunk bar

On this grey Model X P90D SUV, we blacked out almost all of the chrome pieces on the car, but by request from the owner of the car, we kept the emblems/badges chrome. For this picture set, I tried to take more up close up and detailed pictures of the various areas around the car that were wrapped. A common issue that most Tesla owners who get their chrome pieces blacked out is that sometimes the wrappers working on their cars aren't able to properly wrap the mirror and mirror base chrome pieces. This ends up resulting in chrome showing when the mirror is in its folded position or a lot of unnecessary seam lines. The owner of this Model X was in Lake Forest Orange County and we came out to them to do all of the wrap work on their Tesla.
