Default I have a SC300 I'm thinking about wrapping...

Looks like glass if installed properly. The top pilar part is where the a seam would go but if go say, red on the car and a black top they the seam would not look so bad. Ive wrapped plenty of cars, this should take no more then 7-8 hours with bumpers being fully wrapped.<br /><br />You probably need anywhere from 80-100 Ft of vinyl. FYI full rolls are 150F
<br /> I have a SC I'm thinking about wrapping. The only place I've been able to find the vinyl I'm looking for is on eBay. So I'm unsure of the quality of vinyl itself.

Buy a quality brand of vinyl and you should be fine. Brands like Avery and 3m are very popular.

im very interested to see how the finished product looks. When i had my SC300 i was considering wrapping the whole car because the paint was in complete shambles and while i dont have that issue with my SC4, it would be a good option if it ends up looking good.

Default I wrapped my car

My friends and I wrapped my car. We used about 5'x65' of Avery vinyl. We made a video on it:

I would like to see pictures of how everyones cars turn out and thank you mr913 for the video. To keep ot 100, so to speek, I'm really curious and want to know how the blue glo in the dark vynil would look. Obviously at night it will glo blue but I'm wondering how it would look during the day. My car is already a sort of pearl white. I'm hoping it'll still look similar and not like a blob of snot, ya know?

I now have all 3 types of vinyl wraps to work with, the high gloss black one from ebay just came in extra sealed which is nice. I have to get my car running and roll my fenders before I can start wrapping tho~ but I cant wait cus she is dirty pearl white right now
