    Getting a car wrapped completely in matt black vinyl is surprisingly cheap, do a quick google search

    It's about 4 grand for a professional to wrap a car. VEESSV did it himself I think.

    certainly wouldn't consider that 'cheap' and if vinyl wrapping turns out to be anything like putting a screen protector on a phone there's no chance i would ever try it haha

    respect the fact you believe in your principal,know what you want and need,
    same here,I'm not saying I will never buy a v8,although I have had my full license for 11+ years,I dont need the noise of a v8,and I'm happy to spend money on my v6 to keep it tidy coz it's just a cruiser.

    Yep first time and prob the last haha
    Make sure the car is clean give it a going over with prepsol to get any grime, heat gun(best) or hairdryer, felt squeegee thingy, you can use soapy water in a spray bottle to help with moving it around once you get the hang of it you wont need it
    Only tip I really have is to have someone to help, not ez doing it yourself but I had no choice as I did it on my holidays
    ohh and make sure you apply the sides all the same way as in one of my doors highlights differently coz i think I turned the wrap around so in the sun one door does look darker or lighter depending on how you look at it, I need to get around to ripping it off and fixing it
