Donjohnk's build thread
So I've had my car exactly 2 weeks today. I have 910miles in it and today I decided to make a change with the looks
My buddy has a good connection with vinyl, so he ordered me gloss black. This wasn't the easiest wrap job I've done. So issues were not knowing how the antenna was connected to the roof, and how to get the plastics off the inside and lower the headliner to access the bolt holding the antenna.
After searching the Internet we just decided to start pulling the plastics after removing the holy sh*t grips. The headliner has 2 push pins and magnets holding it to the roof by the rear window. Popping those free made enough room to get to the 10mm bolt. Ratchet wrench worked, then pop the plugs for the antenna apart and pull it out. Just watch out there's a metal and plastic cap holding the housing of the antenna, once the bolt is loose they fall off in the liner.
Next issue was that the roof doesn't have rubber edges around it where we could hide the edges, just to make it cleaner looking. So he has special tape the has a fishing line in it the we used it for the edge on the sides. That stuff is awesome, cut through the vinyl like butter.
Took us about 2hrs to wrap it. Trying to get the antenna took 30 mins. I'm happy with the look, next will be tint.
