    I am an owner of a white Kia and as many may know the factory paint is chipping (mostly the hood) so I want to wrap it in black . What are the measurements if I get a vinyl wrap and do I have to sand my hood so it won’t show through the wrap. Any ideas ? And brands? Thank you (:

    Late night MOD. Decided to try out my wrapping skills on some interior parts. A little heat gun and lots of patience...... Working on the other trim which seem to be more challenging then the center one. Hopefully I can get some daylight pics:cool:

    Just an FYI Vvivid Vinyl is nearly a dead match for Kia EB. I scraped the side of my factory side skirt on the passenger side. I was too cheap to re-paint (I'm having my body kit side skirts painted, so it'll cover them up when I install the new skirts.) So.. for a temp fix, I decided to wrap...

    Considering wrapping my hood to get that cool black line all the way down. Should I? Has anyone else done this? Or should I just get it painted?

    Really wanting a gloss back roof wrap for my Optima! However, I'd really like a pre-cut one, if that's even possible to find. If not, do you guys know of any places in the Orlando area that I could get it done? One place quoted me $350 for just the roof, which seems a bit steep to me, but I'm...

    Had my headlights vinyl wrapped today and it really looks awesome and matches my blacked out tails and gives the front a better look.

    Has anybody with a '14 sxl had the chrome on their grille wrapped yet? It's a different shape than the '11-'13 models and actually looks like it'd be more difficult to wrap. All input/comments welcome.
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I'm loving my LX but definitely want my roof to be black. I called a local shop that does wraps. They quoted me $350 to vinyl wrap my roof in gloss back. That sounds like a ripoff to me. Thoughts? Suggestions?

    Type B Badges in Red... I got these cause they were alittle different. I tried plasti-dip and I could never get the texture correct, and to be honest I didn't like the flat black. Adding a glossifier would have just added more texture problems so I decided to go with 3M Black Metallic Gloss...
