How strong is the vinyl, can it handle 1/4 hail stones ? Would be bad to do all that work and start having damage from hail or road debri , stones, dirt, rip into it.

Follow up to my original post. I (finally) got the quote from the only shop in town that does graphics work. $1800. Waay to much in my opinion.

I may actually do it myself. The only problem areas I see are the windshield frame which I may do in 3 pieces, and the grill, which may take alot of heat and stretching. I figure the worst case I am out a few hundred bucks in raw materials.

I've seen it done a bunch of times, and did the vinyl stripes on my Mustang, so I know what I am in for. We will see..... If I do it, I will post up.

The shop giving the quote I was not impressed with their business savvy. After 2 months of calling and calling to get the quote, I finally went back in person a 3rd time for the quote today, only to find out hey lost all my contact info and also had to remeasure. I shouldn't have to beg to do the job, so forget them. It's no wonder if their business is struggling. Funny thing is they just did a commercial JK wrap a few weeks ago. You would think they wanted the business.


I am not naive, I know how hard the job can be. However the hood is pretty simple, there is no roof, the doors are flat, as are the sides. I will spray paint the hinges, which leaves mostly the grill as the problem. If i have everything else done and I can't do that I will spray it as well, but I figure with 3 guys (one to hold the grill, 2 to pull and stretch over the grill), I will be alright.

Starting to look forward to it. I am going to use Oracal 600 series matte black vinyl.

This is a cool idea, I like how you could pull it all off and change it down the road.

Considering making my black Rubicon Unlimited a flat black Rubicon Unlimited when I do the Hemi swap.

Curious if anyone has had this done, how they like it, how it has held up, and what was the cost.

Thanks
