You have me interested! So, which bits exactly have you actually wrapped and from what colour to what as it all looks the way it should do if you ask me!
If a part has been wrapped, how robust is the surface and do you have to be really careful when washing it etc? Did you have to remove the parts from the vehicle to wrap them or can they be done in situ?
As I understand it, Copper inserts are standard and they look a bit rose gold to me which I never liked. My car is Santorini Black with the Black Pack so is completely black which some people really like but I'd like to introduce a bit of contrast to it. The details are all lost in the blackness...
I plan to change the wheels, go for either a silver or grey front grille and put the same colour into the side trims, bonnet vents & front strakes then finish with the badges to match.
I was going to buy the OEM parts, but after finding out that JLR obviously don't like to sell parts (because they don't allow owners to view the EPC), wrapping could be the way!
Finally, ignore my ignorance as I've never wrapped anything other than presents before , but can you wrap wheels too?
Ha ha well I’m rubbish at wrapping presents 😂
All my trims were completely black but as they have small inserts that are shouting out for some colour I thought I’d have a bash.
I had to remove all the trims as the bits that need wrapping are plastic welded into each part from behind, I then used a soldering iron to soften the plastic to remove the inserts.
Wrapping each part with good quality wrap is the tricky part but once you get the hang of it it’s not too bad, after this I re glued each part back into each trim, them popped them all back in place.
then gave her a good power wash and all is good
I don’t know how you found it but my respect goes to the guys that wrap entire cars.
You watch a Yiannamize vid when they wrap a brand new £200 grand motor in two tone mirror pearl purple and it looks so easy.
You then think that’s easy, I’ll wrap a few bits of trim on my own car and find it a real challenge to do a super neat job and without scratching the paintwork beneath.
Looks great now, especially with your silver paintwork, I didn’t know some trims only came in black.
I didn’t buy online as I wanted as near to original colour match.
I live near skipton north York’s and we have a local graphics place, they have tons of different colours but you need the air release stuff as it’s easier to work with, nice warm place and practice on small pieces first, better quality wrap is more plyable and will stretch over what your wrapping without tearing also has the air release so no bubbles too.
Ordered some side steps from eBay but they sent me the dynamic ones instead of pure/prestige, had them fitted not knowing this and now they’re an inch too low, I quite like how low they are, so rather than swap is it possible to add dynamic sills to make up the gap?
Just a thought here - my tyres are all due for replacement and wondered if a larger size than the standard 245/45/R20 is possible.
The reason I ask is that my old Cayenne benefited from going from 265/40/R20 to 265/45/R20. The ride quality was vastly improved with less road noise too - not much...
I’m not sure if this has been spoken about on here before but I’ve scoured the internet looking for answers and still cannot find any.
I bought a 2016 SE 150 last month and after having the car for a month I have become increasingly bored of the infotainment system. It’s the lower spec model...
