The owner of this grey BMW F06 650i gran coupe had me wrap the roof of his car in my gloss black vinyl material. We went with the gloss black vinyl material to try and match the already large glass roof that is on the car, to complete the all black roof look. In addition to the roof, I did the rear roof spoiler on the car, chrome fender side grills and chrome door handle trim pieces in the matching gloss black vinyl materials. The owner of this car was in Yorba Linda and actually just down the street from my shop in Anaheim Hills/Orange County.

The owner of this new white Audi A6 had me black out the chrome/brushed aluminum window trim on the car in my gloss black vinyl material. I think the gloss black finish went fairly well with the car and changed the look of the car completely, even for such for it being a relatively simple and small piece. He drove out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to have the vinyl work done.

The owner of this black BMW E60 550i sedan brought me his car because he was having issues with his factory original paint fading. I went over with him and options that were available for his car, and we decided on going with my gloss black vinyl to give him back that factory finish look. Although minor pits and such still showed through the material, overall, I think the results and pictures speak for themselves. It was a huge improvement over what the owner was dealing with before, as far as the condition of his roof was concerned. The owner of this car was also in Orange County and brought his car to me in Anaheim Hills to have the work done.

I did quite a bit of work on this black Mercedes Benz C250 sedan. I blacked out the chrome/brushed aluminum window trim, the lower door pieces, rear trunk bar and the front day time running light chrome pieces. In addition to those, I also lightly tinted the head lights and tail lights. I took some pictures with one side tinted and one side stock, to show the differences between stock versus tinted with my film. Itís a fairly light film, which gives it a OEM+ look. The owner of this car was from Inland Empire I believe and came out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to have the work done.

In addition to vinyl wrapping, I have started offering plasti dipping services.

I did quite a bit of work on this Black Mercedes Benz E350 blutech. I blacked out the chrome/brushed aluminum window trim, lower chrome door pieces, and rear trunk chrome bar with my gloss black vinyl material, lightly smoked/tinted the tail lights, plasti dipped the wheels, rear badges, and front grill. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the front grill after I was done. The owner of this car came from San Diego up to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to have the vinyl work and plastidip work done on his car.

This is one of the cars that I worked on during my norcal/bay area trip. The owner of this white Mercedes CLA250 sedan had me vinyl wrap his front lower splitter/lip and the slats or fins on the side skirt rocker panels in the 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber finish. Minor accents, but I think it changes the look of the car completely and gives it a sporty look to it. Almost makes it look like the car got an upgraded sport package.

I make occasional trips out to the bay area/norcal pretty often, so if you are up north and interested in getting vinyl work done by me the next time I am up there, send me a PM/e-mail and Iíll add you to my norcal contact list.

For this white 2014 Maserati Ghibli sedan, I vinyl wrapped the roof of the car in my gloss black vinyl material to give it the panoramic roof look. The owner of this car drove out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County, from Los Angeles to have the vinyl work done. Even though the car was brand new, the gloss black roof still changed the look of the car completely to the owner of the car.

The owner of this white Nissan GTR R35 skyline had me vinyl wrap the roof of his car in my gloss black vinyl material. He came out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange county to have the vinyl work done. The gloss black roof went well with the theme and look of his car. Even though the car had some real carbon fiber parts/accents on it, the gloss black roof was a good choice for this car.

For this silver Mercedes Benz C300 sedan, I blacked out the silver and chrome areas of the grill in a matte black finish with plasti dip. In addition to the grill, I applied a light tint/smoke film to the chrome part of the blinkers on side mirrors. I think the black grill drastically changed the look of the car and gave it a more aggressive look. The good part about plasti dip is it is reversible and is removable just like vinyl. The owner of this car came out from Inland Empire area to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to get the work done.

Did something slightly different on these tails than most of the pictures you guys usually see of me tinting/smoking the tails. For this silver Mercedes Benz C32 AMG sedan, I applied a transparent red film over the white portions of the rear tail light blinker areas, so that the white/clear portions matched the rest of the red on the tail lights. Itís a subtle change that changes the way the car looks and is still reversible for if the owner decided to go back to factory later on when selling the car or if they just want to change the look up again. I did this car during one of my norcal/bay area trips.

Right/driver side red clear film applied - Left/passenger side stock

The owner of this white Ferrari FF coupe has had several of his previous cars worked on by me in the past for different vinyl wrap projects. *For his Ferrari FF, we went with the my gloss black vinyl materials for the roof of his car to give it a panoramic roof look and also give it a more aggressive look. *Even though the car already stands out from other cars, the gloss black roof really changed the look of the car even more in a positive way. *The owner of this car was local to me in Yorba Linda and came out to my shop in Orange County to have the vinyl work done. *Also, the purple hue in the pictures was because this car was finished just as the sun was going down and the lighting of the sky was a bit purpleish that day, which translated over into the pictures.

This brand new matte grey Mercedes Benz GLA45 AMG came by to have me lightly smoke/tint the tail lights of his car. In addition to doing the tail lights, I also blacked out the chrome trunk and bumper bars, to complete the blacked out gloss black look on the rest of the car. The film is a very light shade, meant to give it a very factory or as I would like to call an OEM+ look. Itís subtle enough that if you didnít know there was a film on there, you would have thought it came like this from the factory. The owner of this car was from Los Angeles and drove out to me in Orange County/Anaheim Hills to get the tint work done.

The owner of this brand new 2015 Audi A3 sedan came by to have me vinyl wrap the chrome/brushed aluminum window trim of his car with my gloss black vinyl material. We went with gloss black to give it a factory OEM look. The lighting made it a bit hard to take pictures of the white car, but I was able to take some close ups of the car, which showed the transformation and details better. The owner of the car came out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to get the vinyl work done.

Here is something slightly different from the typical chrome that I wrap on most cars. The owner of this black Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG had me vinyl wrap the chrome pieces on the top of his door handles with the 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber material. The owner of this car was from South Orange County and came out to me in Anaheim Hills to get the vinyl work done. I think this finish and look went well with the darker/black color of the car, since it got rid of the chrome on the door handles, but at the same time giving it a slightly different look than just color matching the pieces to the rest of the car.

The owner of this car worked down the street from us in Anaheim Hills over at VMR wheels. He brought his car by to have me black out the chrome/brushed aluminum window trim on his Alpine White F22 235i 2 door coupe. We went with gloss black on his window trim to give it the factory OEM look. Before blacking out the chrome window trim, it stood out quite a bit. After applying a gloss black vinyl film over it, it toned it down, complimenting his tinted windows fairly well.
