You now are the forum's official (w)Rapper.

JayBaRap.

That. Looks. Awesome.

Even more so than the green.

You really should start wrapping 986s.

I'd have you wrap my 986 orange in a nanosecond. Mmm hmmm.

LOL not sure about that but Thanks. What surprising is that it's really not that hard. I made several dumb mistakes on the green because its easy to get overconfident and hurry. It's going to take awhile this time but it's going to be a better job.

Love the gloss black roof. One of the more modern styling touches that I like.

That color is looking totally rich and itís gonna be interesting to see how the black accents accentuate your hand. This color and the Avery Sunflower Yellow are on my short list of potential shapeshifting mods... Iíll appreciate all of your real world feedback and am totally not bored by any of this. Unfortunately, I have a crap clear coat dilemma to negotiate first, myself.

Bold colors for the win!

You'll need to sand it down and prime it you want to wrap it. Whatever you do dont buy Cheata wrap. It is touted as a great beginners wrap but it is awful. It's a little cheaper but I bought a roll and threw it away. Avery Denison is easy to work with.

Probably, I'm not really keeping track this time. I seem to rush when I time myself.

I really think this is turning out well. I'm going to tint the rear window really dark when finished. ��

Nice! I had my doubts about doing the whole hatch in black, but I really like the design you chose.

And yeah, definitely tint that window dark!

That thing looks soo good. Really makes me miss the orange I had on the ghia. That black down the center of the top really pops. Love it.
