My shop is currently located in Anaheim Hills / Orange County.

I can also quote most items via PM, if it's more common items that you were looking to have wrapped. Shoot me a message and we'll go from there.

Thanks!

- Plasti dip rear badges

This is not a Lexus, but I had several people ask me for some more detailed or close up pictures of my plasti dip work and I happen to already have these resized and ready to go. The owner of this white Audi A6 sedan came by my shop in Anaheim Hills / Orange County to have the plasti dip work done, along with getting his roof wrapped and chrome window trim blacked out. Since he was blacking out everything else, blacking out the chrome badges made everything flow together fairly well.

Overview:
- Gloss black front grill
- Gloss black window trim
- Gloss rear trunk handle piece

The owner of this grey Lexus GS350 F Sport sedan had me black out the remaining chrome pieces that were on his car. We went with the gloss black finish for everything, to give it a factory finish and look. The owner of the car drove out to me in Anaheim Hills / Orange County to have the vehicle vinyl wrap work done. The gloss black on the chrome pieces really gives the car a sportier look, but without making the car look too overly modified or look as if the pieces were aftermarket. Blacking out the chrome is a good look for those who want something subtle that’ll set their cars off from a regular GS.

Overview:
- Tinted / Smoked vinyl wrapped head lights
- Plasti dip matte black front grill
- 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber lower center bumper lip

For this black Audi S5 coupe, I lightly smoked / tinted the head lights, wrapped the lower center bumper lip in the 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber, and I plasti dipped the entire grill in a matte black finish. We did keep the chrome rings on the front and also the S5 badge in the grill their original finish/colors. The owner of this car came out to me in Anaheim Hils / Orange County from San Diego to get the vinyl and plasti dip work done. People are sometimes worried that the tint on head lights will reduce light out put, but the shade is fairly light, so that the light output is essentially unaffected. The additional benefit of wrapping the head lights is the protection they provide from rock chips and also helps prevent it from fading/oxidizing.

Overview:
- Gloss black front grill
- Gloss black window trim and rear trunk bar
- Tinted / smoked rear tail lights

For this black Mercedes Benz C63 AMG coupe, I blacked out the chrome trim pieces around the window, front grill, and rear trunk bar in my gloss black vinyl material, to give it a factory finish/look, similar to the black optics package that is available for these cars now. I also lightly tinted / smoked his rear tail lights as well. The chrome pieces were not all completely blacked out, which still gave the car some contrast. The work done gives the car a nice subtle change without making anything look after market. Most people would think that the car came this way from the factory. The owner of the car drove out to me in Anaheim Hills / Orange County from Pasadena to get the vinyl work done.

Can you PM me a price to wrap a lower bumper front lip in carbon fiber. Im looking for a carbon fiber wrap that looks as close to the real thing as possible... probably 4D or 5D. Thanks!
