Re: Best Option for my Bumper?

As heather suggested:

Cos its black and black is the only really good looking carbon fibre vinyl wrap in my experience.
Wrap it yourself.It will be a lot cheaper than getting even a very reasonable sprayer guy.
3D vinyl wrap.. the surface is textured and any holes will be masked.
4d vinyl wrap(just a name, no time travel or similar involved) has a gloss surface but is semi "4d" for an "ooh" effect.
To do it properly, you would need to take the bumper etc off maybe a light sand with 2000 paper and wipe with pure /diluted alcohol to remove any polish.
It does last well .. 3 years + maybe more.

The only real prob with it is any real stone gouges or accident damage, you cant repair it , but .. over 2- 3 years the nicks wouldnt show like in paint.., and you could allways do again

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
