This is a quick´n´dirty edit of some footage I shot, while my black Corvette C6 has been wrapped in Blue Matte Metallic.
At first I wanted to wrap by my own, but after several tries and some research I decided to get a Pro.
I designed all the decals and the visual behaviour of my baby on my 3D Workstation and showed the renderings to several Car Wrapping Professionals.
The prices differed from "nearly nothing" to much too expensive, until I´ve found the guy from "Autofolierung Crailsheim" (close to my village), who had a decent price and his heart on the right side.
I asked him, if I could take part for making some wraps by my own, he agreed, so we had a lof of fun for several days.
We didn´t disassemble the big Corvette parts, we just loosend the front and rear bumper for getting more space between the edges.
Later on I sealed all the edges with a special 3M sealing.
Heaviest part have been the rear bumper, which should get wrapped in one piece and the side mirrors (pain in the ass).
We needed several tries, because the wrapping sheets cracked all the time.
We needed r.a. 25m of the 3M scotchprint 1080 sheet (the matte blue one), some smaller pieces of the 3M 3D-DiNoc for the roof and side mirrors.
I´ve started with some smaller pieces like the rear spoiler (which got a rearview camera too), some parts of the dashboard and the center console.
At first I wrapped the center console in carbon (like in the movie), but decided later on, to take the much better and brighter looking stainless steel-like sheets (don´t know the name anymore).
Well...after getting more and more experienced I wrapped the roof (super easy), the filler cap, side markers, side mirrors and helped out for the bonnet, doors and the fenders.
All in all the result is pretty much convincing, even if we made some smaller mistakes, which had to be fixed afterwards.
Additionally I let the 4 times european champion Ronald Hau tint my rear window. The result is exceptional and I´ve never seen a better, faster and cheaper result...great thanks again!
To paint the wheels I tried the "Plasti Dip" in matte black and yes...it looked great, has been easy to use and after a year it still looks really fantastic.
