Thanks for the feedback I'll try and post some pics later tonight

For anyone interested, these are some installation pics for a door. I just cut a piece of vinyl about the size of the door, applied the vinyl, and tucked the edges back behind the door.

Here are some pics of the seams. There are only 2 places on the entire car with seams. Where the rear fender and roof meet and the windshield pillars. For the headlight buckets, I just took them off and put on the vinyl then bolted them back on. You can barely even see the seams.

I figured there would have to be a seam on the rear pillar. I would be applying to a 65 fastback and doing brushed titanium If I went this route so it'd be a smaller seam but you did a very good job and you left a half inch or so too of overlap which is smart. The only thing I'm worried about is the fact I have open scoops upper and lower and will have a open hood scoop to do. This would leave a seam in front of each scoop where you'd have to splice the vinyl if I'm correct and that would be the one reason that would keep me from going this route

Yea your fastback has a lot more scoops and curves than my coupe does so it would be difficult. The vinyl is very playable when heated and it can contour to almost any shape so it can be possible to vinyl the scoops or you can cut a small hole in the vinyl where your scoops are and slowly apply the vinyl around the scoops and use a blade to cut out the scoop hole, that's what I did to my side scoops. Then I painted them black. I don't know if that makes sense lol

I like the brushed aluminum by the way it looks great, I seen some YouTube videos. Nice fastback too

Yea I love the idea of brushed titanium but I want the car to be extremely clean and that's why I have welded many body lines together and vinyl seams will counter that, and the scoops are custom fabbed out of sheet metal and welded directly to the body so that would be extremely hard to get to look presentable with vinyl I would think, maybe I'll buy a few small sheets and give it a try around the scoop areas. I appreciate the help

Oh I see what you are saying, yea it would be difficult. Might as well try a couple small sheets of vinyl just to see if it's possible and how it would come out.

Dude your car looks awesome! I want to do the same with my build. Where did you buy the wrap from? Can it be applied to a car that just has primer? (No paint)? Or does the car have to be painted?

Thanks I bought the vinyl on amazon from the seller autovinylsolutions. They also have a website I think it's autovinylsolutions.com and you can order directly from them off their website. I'm not sure if it can be applied to primer you can go to their website and get their contact info and ask them. If you are planning on wrapping a whole car I would get a 40x5ft roll of vinyl. They have like every color imaginable, it's pretty cool. One of my other favorite colors they had was black brushed steel, There is a YouTube video of a corvette wrapped in black brushed steel and it looks awesome.

I mean it may depend on what brand vinyl you get but I've heard it actually sticks to primer better. It's poress and allows for better adhesion. And for the OP I didn't know you lived so close, your in Modesto right, I'm right down the road in Clovis, next to Fresno

Oh cool, yea I'm from Modesto CA. I like how your fastback is coming along it looks great, 1965 right? My friends older brother has a 1965 fastback with a 347 stroker pushing close to 500hp.

I used plasti dip on the bumpers, the inside of the headlight buckets, side scoops, and all the window trim. I used matte black spray paint on the door handles and side mirror

I needed alcohol to clean the surfaces vinyl was being applied, 2 felt tip squeegees, a heat gun, 3m primer. All of that was about $80-$90

I know this thread is two months old and I don't mean to change the subject but this is the closest thread I could find the subject I'm looking for (very very awesome mustang BTW the 69 is probably the best year mustang there ever was and ever will be) But I was wondering if anyone had heard of a type of windshield seal that makes it so you dont have the chrome trim around it? I have only heard of it once before but I can't seem to find it on the interwebs.

That question would be answered faster if you were to start a new thread.
