    Ever since I got the car I wanted to do something different utilizing the sexy bumper lines. Had some Satin vinyl laying around so I caved in.

    Here is my youtube clip of it:

    I did not realize how well defined that crease is. That looks pretty cool!!!

    Did you remove that GR emblem and put it back on the wrap or just cut around it? Wondering if there are holes underneath that GR emblem. I want to remove mine. The placement of it looks like an after-thought :d

    Thanks guys! im soooo damn happy with how it looks. I knew it would look good...it was just about taking the plunge to do it.
    As for removing the GR emblem, I did not remove it. I left it on and used a brand new very sharp surgical scalpel to trim the edge without touching the bumper or the emblem itself. Ofcourse I had to use a heat gun for some of the area's. Take note...im not a pro in vinyl wrapping but I have been doing it for some time when I do have free time. Here is my E92 M3 I did over the years...went with Arlon Matte blue...after a year wanted a cooler looking Livery design on the track. Today she is back to stock color Alpine White.

    Respect and props to idea/senses for design!
    Did you use 1 whole piece of vinyl to do the project? Or multiple?
    License plate area is quite a groove.
    If 1 whole pc was used, did not know stressing the vinyl that much was possible!?!?
    But what do I know, not a professional.
    Two thumbs up once again

    Dude looks like he had to cut a hole in the roof of the Supra to fit in the thing. I’m more impressed that he can get in and out than in the vinyl work. The last person near his size in mine damn near became a permanent fixture in it.

    Thanks guys for the kind words. Yes I used one large piece of vinyl to wrap the rear. Patience and knowledge on how to form around curves and angles. With wrapping you don't want to use the heat gun unless its necessary! I didn't even take the GR emblem off to wrap it. Ill try and take a close up pic of that.
    I just installed a highflow cat by Active Autowerkz, safe Track tune by Mike Botti ...only pump gas, rear carbon dry lip wing, Forgelines, Yokohama A052's.

    Hahaha...honestly...getting in and out is exactly like my old C6 Z06. But once inside, plenty of room for what is meant to happen....TO DRIVE.
