    Thanks...am still trying to figure out how to post pictures and messages. I tried to put this vinyl on my hood (by myself) ruined half of the sheet so used the rest on the dash. The stuff is really easy and forgiving. What I like about it is the fact that it protects the plastic/paint from UV exposure.

    What did you cost you? I have alot of customers who have issues with the 3m wrap coming up on the corners/edges after a year or so.

    It cost me 150 to get the grill and the bumper done I didn't want chrome anymore and since my wife tried to take on my 72 monte from the rear and lost the old grill was cracked and the bumper was scratched it seems to be holding up just fine and its 5 year vinyl

    I dont really see exterior parts have issues. Its the interior parts that seem to have issues. Arizona summers can be brutal on interiors.
