    What do yall think about a full vinyl wrap? I have a thing for matte army green, but I also like black and possibly blue.

    Hi guys, I want to do a BLACK vinyl wrap on my white GT MAZDA 3, the question is MATTE or GLOSS? I know some say that the matte deteriorates quicker in the sun and it can be a pain to clean but from my research, with the right products, cleaning and maintaining is not a problem for me. I am...

    Hi everyone! I was just wondering if anyone has dipped matte black your grill chromes, or if you have a pic to share, if its a meteor gray Mazda will be best, as I can't decide whether to paint it or not. Thanks in advance

    Well today was rather upsetting. Went into the grocery store for about 20 minutes and came out to this. Any idea how I can remedy the scratches/dings? Pretty annoyed and upset right now. :argh 1:

    I re did a few panels of vinyl and threw on some xxr527's black chrome. I think it turned out great. Got a good response from other forums. Wanted to throw another post out on here in case anyone had any questions on this DIY. Either you love the matte or you hate it lol.... The rims did rub at...

    So I was browsing Tirerack the other day and came across these. I'm totally digging how these may look on Emilie, and the price point is not bad either to pull off that understated rally look for our MZ3s. Want to see if anyone else are eyeing these as well. Thoughts?

    Hey all, wanted to post my newest mod. Completed it all myself, took approximately 8 hours to do. Used a 2 tone vinyl wrap, using 3m scotch print and Oracal satin black vinyl. I realize there are some mistakes and it is not as clean as a professional job but I think it looks good for an...

    I'm talking a full body matte black (for example) wrap. If so, post pictures! I just came back from Europe and saw several 3-series BMWs with stock Matte Black paint and couldn't help but think my 3 would look awesome in it.

    Hey all. So I got these Konig Backbone wheels recently to replace my other wheels. Due to lack of care and too frequent automated car washes (possible suspects) my old wheels' clear coat started flaking off. Comments were made and bottom line, I really didn't take care of the old set. That being...

    Last week, I went out and got a can of PlastaDip. After watching some videos and hearing how much people like it, I thought I would use it black out my badges. Well, after spraying down the front badge, I didn't like it. I'm no stranger to a can of spray paint, but this shit was impossible to...

    Heres what I did today. I popped out my fog light trim and wrapped them in matte black vinyl. Very quick and easy with a heat gun. Took about 15 mins to get both done. I will update this post once I have day light and pop them back on the car. :tongue: The vinyl I chose to use was from here.
