My 1969 Coupe Wrapped in Vinyl Before and After What do You Think?

My friend and I wrapped my entire car in 3M Auto Vinyl. The cowl hood is wrapped in matte black and the rest of the car is wrapped in matte dark grey. I also blacked out all the chrome trim and the bumpers, as well as the door handles and side mirror. My car was a very dark green before I wrapped it. I also blacked out the chrome trim around my rims, the tail light panel, and the gas cap. The total cost was about $600 for all the vinyl and supplies. Took us about 2 weeks to complete. What do you think?

It does look like a great job but I agree with the above statement. I liked the dark green from before

I like it a lot more. It makes it different and makes it stand out, without it being vulgar. It isn't just another mustang now.

Did you not like the silver lip on your wheels? I think that made them look great. Otherwise, beast looking car! It really will stand out. It was worth the effort

Yeah I liked the chrome lip around the rims but it just didn't match the look of the new color since there was no longer any more chrome on the car. I used plasti dip on the chrome outer lip on the rims, all the chrome trim, and the bumpers, so if I end up wanting to change back all I have to do is peel off the plasti dip.

Thanks for all the great comments I appreciate the feedback. I chose this color because I have always liked the matte colors and I didn't want the usual matte black. The color I chose is actually matte dark grey metallic so, in the sun, it looks matte but it also has a nice metallic shine to it.

For anyone interested in wrapping your car, it is doable, you just need time and a lot of patience. My friend and I had no previous experience with any vinyl before we did my car so it is doable.

I am getting my windows tinted in march, hopefully it will complete the stealthy aggressive look I was going for.

I just did each body panel. I cut a piece of vinyl to the size I would need for a front fender, rear fender, hood, roof, etc and tucked the edges back behind the body lines and kept them down with 3m primer (basically clear glue).

Awesome job!
Yea I have also always liked the gloss black and matte black combo. One of my favorite mustangs I have seen was a two tone gloss black on bottom and matte black on top. Having the top matte black on top would match your vinyl top

What do you guys think about getting my windows tinted? I think it would complete the look. I'm also getting a stereo system installed tomorrow with two 6x9 speakers in the rear package tray and a new 5x7 speaker in the dash.

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 think if you tinted the windows it would make it look that much better!

I don't normally like tinted windows on some of these old school rides but I think with your window trim black the tints would look real good. Go for it.

The car looks great very modern, I've been interested in wrapping and didn't know how it'd turn out on a classic mustang but obviously it did. Where did you put seams at on the main body and on the front end like headlight buckets and what not. If you could post some detailed pictures of seams on curved areas I'd appreciate it, I could send you my email if thatd be easier

From what I can see in the pics y'all did a awesome job! The wrap gives it a clean modern look and it all comes together with the color combo that you used.
