For this black Mercedes Benz E55 AMG Sedan, I lightly tinted/smoked the tail lights of the car with a vinyl film. The darker tail lights matched the darker theme of the car fairly well, with the car already having blacked out wheels, exhaust tips, etc. The film is a fairly light shade, so light output is minimally affected, unlike tail lights that are completely blacked out. The owner of this car was from around Huntington Beach I believe, and came out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to have the vinyl wrap work done on his tail lights.

The owner of this alpine white F12 650 or 640 coupe was from Diamond Bar and came over to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to have me do the car wrap on his car. We went with my gloss black vinyl material for the roof of his car, to complete the glass panoramic look for the car. The owner decided to leave the roof rails white and did not have me vinyl wrap them along with the rest of the roof for this car wrap.

This is a bit different, but I know you guys seeing more pictures of various and different type of wrap jobs than the regular roof, trim, etc wraps. I did a partial car wrap for the top half of this 2013 white Land Rover LR4 HSE. For this car wrap, we did the top half of the car in 3M 1080 gloss black vinyl material. I believe the owner of this car said that itís suppose to resemble how the new Range Rover Autobiography editions come from the factory. I took two pictures of the during vinyl wrapping process, to show you guys how what it looks like during the transformation. The owner of this car was in Irvine and came out to me in Anaheim hills/Orange county to have the car wrap done for his car.

I did this Audi TT back in my trip to norcal in December. The owner of this car drove out to me in San Jose to have the grey portion of his rear diffuser and lower front bumper splitter in the 3M 1080 gloss carbon fiber. The pictures of the rear diffuser did not come out as good, since the car was facing towards the sun. However, in the pictures of the front splitter, you can really see the weave and pattern of the carbon fiber vinyl in the sunlight fairly well. These small changes to the car still changes the look of the car quite a bit and is nothing something that is noticeable right away, but still gives it a sportier look.

For this red Ferrari 458 I plasti dipped the front, rear, and top engine lid emblems/badges. I also blacked out the amber portion on his front bumper with my gloss black vinyl. For such a simple change, it really changed the look of the car quite a bit. Since there were no other chrome pieces on the car, after blacking out those chrome badges, it gave the car a sportier and more aggressive look, while cleaning up overall look of the car as well. The owner of this car was local to me and brought his car out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County to have the plastic dip and vinyl work done.

The owner of this silver Mercedes Benz C63 AMG sedan came out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County from Los Angeles to have me apply a gloss black vinyl roof car wrap for his car. People usually say white cars look the best with gloss black roofs, but I actually think it looks awesome on silver cars. The gloss black roof compliments the silver and other carbon fiber/black accents on the the car perfectly.

This is a returning customer who had me previous lightly tint the tail lights on his E92 M3. This time he had me come back to do the tail lights on his Audi V10 R8 as well. The film that I use is a fairly light shade, which is dark enough to give it a nice noticeable change and also still maintain a factory/OEM look. The owner of this car was in Irvine/Orange County near where I was so I dropped by his house to do the tail lights for his car.

Originally the owner of this silver/grey BMW F06 650i gran coupe sedan came by to have me lightly tint/smoke the tail lights of his car with my vinyl car wrap material. He had previously had his roof wrapped by another company. I asked him if he opted to leave the roof rails unwrapped or if the company who did his roof simply did not wrap it for him. He told me that he didn't even know it was an option that you could wrap the roof rails, since the other wrap company said it was not possible. So in addition to lightly tinting his tail lights, I also wrapped the two side roof rails in gloss black to match the rest of the roof. The owner of this car drove from Los Angeles out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange county to have the vinyl car wrap work done.

The owner of this car actually had me work on his car twice on the same day. He originally brought his white BMW 535i F10 sedan to have me black out the chrome/brushed aluminum window trim on his car with my gloss black vinyl material to give it the sport package/shadow trim look. After he saw how the gloss black window trim looked, he actually came back and ended up having me wrap his vertical B pillars in gloss black as well, to match the rest of the gloss black window trim. The owner of this car was from Pasadena/Los Angeles and came out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange county to have the vinyl car wrap work done.
