Any body here have any experience with a DIY Vinyl Wrap? More specifically how many feet were needed? I’ve tinted quite a few windows before (which is obv different) but i think i could do it it pretty easily. Just don’t want to have a half completed wrap job on my daily after realizing I didn’t order enough.

(I’m looking at the 3M brushed metallic black , because why not make it more difficult on myself with a directional wrap )

Ok no answer here exactly except for an online calculator below, but paid a guy I knew who does this type of work. Had my 2005 Scion tc I use it as a daily driver. It works great howeverany imperfections come thru. He used 3M as well. There was some corners that lifted after a year. Might of had some oils around the door jam. Make sure there is no rust as well. Even thin tape lines will show through.

You need to power wash and degrease and remove the wax. Using Dawn, then claybar the surface. Use these around edges 3M 4298 Adhesion Promoter, 3 Sponge Applicators https://a.co/d/9ec3wN3

It's a patience game. Notice in the pre pics the car is pretty flawless except for a front passenger fender with some creases. However I was trying to buy 7 more years of paint protection. The clear coat was gone, 15 years of S Fla sun.
