Default Finally the front bumper is wrapped

This was the last part of the puzzle I needed to finish to complete the CT wrap. I think it brings the hood wrap together nicely. well here it is:

I'll get a better pic or two put up at a later point.

I had to do the bumper in two pieces, some of those curves were very deep and since I'm not a professional I had to use two pieces.

During the whole process I now have a new appreciation for guys who do this for a living.

Thanks for looking!

Already posted in one of your other threads, but your CT looks really good! Very unique, and aggressive. Good job on the wrapping.

Good job!

I tried to vinyl the space in the front grill like you did but i wasn't able to get the vinyl to conform to the indentations next to the grill inserts. I ended up giving up. I figured the only way to do it would be to remove the grill inserts. how did you manage?

I pulled the bumper off and removed the grill inserts. wrapping the front bumper was a pain, I had to do it in two pieces. the curve where the grill starts caused the biggest issue. It took me two tries to get it right, thank goodness I had enough vinyl.

Wow, that must have been allot of work! Is it pretty straight forward to remove the front bumper? I have only removed the side wheel well to change the fog lights... I feel better about my own skills however because I was pretty mad at myself for messing up the vinyl!
