    photoshop help please

    I am looking at getting my chrome strip and front grill carbon wrapped. Is it possible someone can have a play for me so i know how good/bad it will look.
    Much love








    I know the grill looks good in the picture but when you look at it the paint job is crap and has been re-done at least 4 times. I am hoping the carbon wrapping will be an improvement.

    thanks for your help.

    Cool thanks for that. How does it look do you think? The grill doesn't look that much different. I think I like it.

    im not 100% on the rear strip, think that would look much better if it was to match the colour of your car

    with the grill the carbon will have a slightly different hue to it if you were to add it onto your car, that photoshop is as close as i could possibly get it although do think it would look quite smart! have seen both done before somay be worth putting up a pic request thread if you want to see the real thing

    Its not that it is hard to spray it is just that the plastic is cack and the paint lifts. Other people have had no problems with their grills just me so I thought sanding and wrapping would be easier and maybe even look better.

    What is the quality on your grill like mate? The paint on mine has bubbled, hence the reason for me putting the standard grill on but vinyl wrapped in black.

    I was thinking about vinyl wrapping my front grill, same as the one you have in gloss black seeing as the paint quality is poor.

    I don't think it is the paint that has gone wrong. From what painters have told me (after looking at the grill) is that the abs plastic is of poor quality and they are basically like an aero chocolate bar (little holes on the inside). If a few of these holes come through to the service then the paint can't settle. I am definatley getting mine carbon wrapped. It is easier and cheaper than re-painting all the time. It should look better to lol.
