I'll say it again, really like how your Challenger looks. If you don't mind me asking, approx. how much will it cost to vinyl wrap the hood. Thinking about doing this to my torred R/T. Also, what's your suspension set up, I like how it looks. Again, nice ride.

Thanks for all the feed back. I'm running St coil overs. To do just the hood your looking at about 300 for 3m vinyl which is very very good stuff. My hood is flawless not a single bubble. So pay to have it done right. Also make sure they take off the washer nozzles and hood vents

I just paid $350 to have my hood wrapped. Not completely happy with it. How did they finish the corners of your hood near the windshield?? I was left with material bunched up at the corners. Looks like shit. I also had them continue the wrap over the nose piece. The sides do not line up very well with the lines of the fenders. Has anyone ever tried trimming this material after its installed? I am tempted to trim the edges on both sides, obviously without cutting into the paint beneath. One more thing, what product are you going to use to clean and maintain the matte black finish?

Plum did they just go to the edge of the hood and stop? Mine has about 1/4 inch of material underneath. Also McGuire has a special spray wax that I'm using. Works great I'll get the details for you

They cut and wrapped the material under the hood. I guess there's no real good way to wrap the corners perfectly near the windshield. I was going to try and trim them, but I'm afraid that if I cut the vinyl it will run on me. I still need to trim the edges where it comes over the nose. To make things worse, I had the car outside and noticed that they cut into the paint on my fender as they were trimming the hood material. Fine scratches up and down both sides. A body/paint shop is going to touch up the one area where the paint was removed completely. Not a good experience unfortunately. Not trying to hijack your thread either, just chiming in to let people know how important it is to find someone who is detail oriented to do your work. I learned my lesson.

Jim - I'm with you on thinking 900.00 is a little too high. I had a couple quotes for my wrap that came in at $750.00 but scheduling a time to get it done was a bit of a challenge at one location and another didn't want to do it since their wrap specialist was on vacation and the manager I was talking with was convinced it would look bad (call it artistic differences). In the end I paid $525.00 plus tip to get my hood, fenders, and nose wrapped as well as have to r/t classic stripes removed and AAR stripes added. The hood itself is the hardest part the fenders and nose took about 30 mins if that.

Evol - like the way the strobes and hood turned out. My personal preference would be to wrap the nose in front of the hood but it looks great nice job.

Take it easy
