I can do clear bra, if you supply the materials. I do not carry clear bra myself.

It's easier for me to keep track of conversations if you guys PM or e-mail me.

This is another car that I worked on during one of my trips up to norcal/bay area to do vinyl wraps. I really like the way this car turned out. It's not often that a black car has me vinyl wrap their roof, but the owner of this black Mercedes Benz E55 AMG had me vinyl wrap his roof with the 3M di-noc matte carbon fiber finish vinyl material. The final result and effect is as you can see below. The matte/carbon finish roof really gives the car some more character in my opinion.

I can provide the material, but how long do you think it'd take to redo my clear bra? And pm me the price please.

You have clear bra on there now? Do you need me to remove that as well?

For this brand new black BMW F10 5 series, I blacked out the chrome/brushed aluminum window trim with my gloss black vinyl material. The owner of this car opted to go with the gloss black finish over the matte black to give it the look of the original BMW shadow line blacked out window trim that comes from the factory. Overall, I think it changed the look of the car dramatically, even for something as small/simple as just the chrome trimming around the windows. The owner of this car drove out to me in Orange County/Anaheim Hills to get the vinyl work done.

PMs replied to.

This brand new white F30 335i sedan came in to have me vinyl wrap the roof of his car with my gloss black vinyl material. He also wanted me to black out the lower sides of his front bumper, where splitters would typically go, with the same finish. He drove out to me in Orange County/Anaheim Hills to have the work done.

Here is a car that I worked on during my norcal/bay area trip in San Jose. The owner of this car wanted to go with the 3M dinoc matte carbon fiber vinyl for his roof. As you can see, the material looks different from different angles. I tried taking it from multiple perspectives/angles to show you guys this effect. The carbon roof definitely gave this car a more aggressive look and I thought it went fairly well with the rest of the theme of the car.

I worked on this blue VW R32 MkV while up in norcal/bay area. For this car, I used my light smoke/tint film material on the car's tail lights. I took some before, during, and after pictures to show you guys the progression and how it compares to stock side by side. Overall, the shade of vinyl that I use is fairly light and gives the car that OEM+ look without being/looking too dark.

This is a returning customer of mine. The owner of this car previous has had me black out some chrome on his 5 series GT and also tint the tail lights on his X6 M before. I ended up doing this car at his house, since he happened to live down the street from me in Irvine, so it just worked out. We went with the matte black finish on this car to match the matte black B pillars that were already on the car. This was a brand new black BMW F10 528 sedan, and the slight change from chrome to black made quite a difference in the overall car's appearance.
