Thank you The rear emblems are unfortunately PlastiDip. I plan to remove that and replace with gloss vinyl at some point. Just didn't have the time today.

looks great. Did you do the side windows also to match the front? If so do you have a pic of that?

I'll go out on a limb and assume it's just yellow vinyl.

Yellow DRLs
Black Vinyl Grill Surround
Tinted front emblem
Carbon Fiber vinyl lower left/right bumper

And here's the result

Stay tuned. More to come!
Hi IntegresS,

Usually I am not into exterior mod as I prefer the stock look. But your carbon fiber vinyl lower bumper corner looks classy and it blends in with black color. This is one of the best appearance mods I have seen to date. Very subtle and good use of the existing F Sport front bumper aesthetics.

Though I am getting the regular IS (due to some features not available on F Sport on Canada), I have been thinking of plasti dip or vinyl wrap the centre black plastic portion of the bumper (less the grille and emblem area) as I think they are the remaining target for stone chips after clear bra installed on the bumper)

For F Sport grille, it looks difficult to wrap it. Mind if I ask you how much time did the shop spend I doing that, minus the time to take off the grille off the bumper?

Thanks

Why thank you! I honestly don't know how long it took them to do the actual wrapping of the grill, but I can ask them as I will be returning for more work They did tell me that the bumper was incredibly easy to remove on the 3IS. Unfortunately, they had to spend some time removing the plasti-dip from my grill surround before even being able to apply the vinyl wrap, so I'm not sure how much of the time they had it was actually spend wrapping it.

Here are few shots of 3.0 that we took at the Pursuit today.





(Don't worry, my foot was not actually touching the bumper there. I was balancing )

Liking how the Batmobile is shaping up! Just wondering, why Batman instead of Catwoman?
