Default **Don Nguyen | Vinyl roof wrapping, tail light tinting, black out chrome trim install

For locals that are looking to get vinyl installed on their cars, I can supply both the materials and do the complete installation at my location. The best way to schedule an appointment with me or reach me is via e-mail at donathon@gmail.com

Here's a link to my Facebook Page - Gallery

I am located in Anaheim Hills / Orange County, California. (Note: I do occasionally make trips to Norcal / Bay Area for vinyl installations/work as well, contact me for more info)

For non-locals (or for someone who just wants or needs some materials) and would like to DIY it, I can supply and sell you just the materials to do the installation as well.

Prices varies for both installation and materials depending on the exact car, vinyl finish, and specific part(s) that you want wrapped, so PM or e-mail me (donathon@gmail.com) directly for price quotes.

- Gloss and matte black roof vinyl (other finishes/colors are available upon request)
- Gloss and matte Carbon fiber vinyl
- Black out chrome/brushed aluminum window trim vinyl
- Interior/exterior trim
- Head/tail light tinting
- Full car wraps
- Graphic/vinyl installations
- And More...

I've done installations on hundreds of cars and have supplied materials to thousands of cars worldwide at this point. Here are just one or two quick pictures of the cars and the work that I have personally done for them, just to give you guys an idea of how it looks like and the quality of my work:

Even if you may not see something pictured in one of the links below, feel free to contact me directly, as it is very likely that it is still something that I can do or have done in the past.

The owner of this dark blue Subaru WRX hatchback wanted me to red out his tail lights, to make it not so white/clear. So what I did for him was use my clear red vinyl film and applied it over his rear tail lights. He wanted me to cut out the reverse light and turn signal portions so that they would show through their original colors still. However, I took in progress pictures to show you guys how it would have looked like if they weren't cut out, so you can compare and contrast which style/look you'd prefer more.

For this white Lexus IS250, the owner wanted to have me black out the roof of his car with my gloss black vinyl material. We went with the gloss black to give it that panoramic/glass look. The gloss black roof went well with the other black pieces that were on the car (black inserts/accents on the side skirts and roof spoiler, which was only taken off for the install). The only other thing I could have possibly suggested to doing to this car is also blacking out the chrome around the window trim area. However, that comes down to a preference thing and some people prefer having/leaving it chrome, but I like the blacked out look for the chrome since it gives the car a much sportier look. The owner of this car came out to me in Orange County/Anaheim Hills to get the work done.

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.

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.

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.

You might see me post a lot of white cars, followed by black cars, but I also do get cars that are other than black and white that come by to get work done as well. I thought the gloss black roof for this red Infiniti G35 coupe turned out very well. The gloss black roof went well with the black/dark colored rims that were already on the car, which was the look that the owner of this car was trying to go for. He drove out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to have the work done.

I don't know why, but I just don't end up posting very many pictures of the interiors that I have wrapped. I thought I had more pictures of this interior, but only one of them turned out well enough to post, since the others ended up being too dark, due to angle/lighting inside the car. This is the interior on an IS250/IS350 that I wrapped all of the hard wood pieces with the 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber finish. The owner of this car had me wrap the pieces while still in the car. It's a nice change from wood, for those who are looking to get rid of the wood look or going after a sportier look.

This is one of the few new BMW F30 silver 328i sedan that I have wrapped with the 3M Di-noc matte carbon fiber finish recently. As you can see, the finish/look of the cf vinyl roof changes depending on the angle that you are looking at it and how the light reflects off of it. The matte carbon roof complimented the darker colored wheels that were on the car fairly well. The pictures don't do it much justice, since I was mainly focusing on capturing an accurate portrayal of the roof vs the finish of the wheels. The owner of this car drove out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to have his roof wrapped.

Did a light tint/smoke install on this darker grey/gunmetal BMW 750i sedan F01. I took some before, during, and after pictures to give you guys a better picture of how the subtle changes/progress is like with my light tint/smoke vinyl material. I think the tail lights being slightly darker gave it a nice OEM+ look without making it look too modified, which is what the owner was trying to maintain. In addition to the tails, I also dod the reflectors in the bumpers to make sure that everything matched in the rear. The owner of this car drove from Los Angeles out to me in Orange County/Anaheim Hills to get the work done.
