My First Wrap - Completed

Hi All,

You may have seen my other thread where I was going to attempt my first wrap. Well I did it over the weekend and here is the finished product!

In the end I ordered APS' own branded Supreme Wrapping Vinyl. I must say I was VERY impressed with it, it was costly, but even being a complete amateur, I found the wrap very easy (although time consuming!)

Just want to know what you think? I will get some more close up pictures in the next few days :)

Thanks,

Matt

Great job- especially for a first attempt! Did you do it all solo?

Thanks for the kind comments all :-)

I spent 8 hours Saturday and 6 hours Sunday doing it. Could have been quicker but didn't want to rush it

It wasn't Avery. APS have launched their own wrapping film. It's brand new and I was the first to use it as a customer, a guinea pig then lol

And yeah I did the wrap solo, nobody fancied spending two days with me LOL

Cheers all

Matt

P.S a few people have asked where they had it done. Already got another two wraps to do lol. At first I didn't even want to attempt it but the first one was for a mate, so the pressure was off, so to speak! Bow I cant wait to wrap some more, and get on a course :-)

Matt, I will comment once you put up the close up's of all the difficult areas :lol1: :lol1:

Looks good from what can be seen though, even if you do get a couple more under your belt seriously consider doing a course, you will learn something no matter how much you think you know.
