Reasons for wanting to vinyl my whole car: My paint looks gorgeous in the shade, but in the sunlight you notice all the imperfections (there is a lot more than usual)

Well guys I'm leaving for DC soon for college so nothing much else is going to happen to my car.

But while i'm at school I'll be working and will be able to buy many parts for my car.

As well as parts I have been talking to Don Nguyen about vinyl wrapping my whole car.

Take a look at my cars progress thread to get an idea of what my car will look like, but also here is what kind of aesthetic mods will be on it.

It is a 1999 Jet black 323i Pre-Facelift E46 Sedan

Mods will be:

Facelift GTR Hood
CSL Trunk
Mtech ll front bumper
Arqray Front Lip
M3 Style rear bumper
Slammed as much as possible on Racelands
Wide wheels (19x9.5 all around)
Hellaflush

So I can pretty much do any color there is matte or gloss. I'm pretty sure I'll want to do the roof,trunk,hood,rear diffusor,front lip in carbon fiber.

If someone could photoshop some color options that would be great.

Heres some color ideas, I want to be as unique as possible

white: soooo clean but not very unique



orange: unique but not my favorite color



matte black: unique enough



lime green: hmmmm



matte blue: drooooooool I think this is my favorite so far



lambo gray: Can someone find the e46 that is in this color?







matte gray: primer?

If I could paint my car any color, it'd probably be a pearl white like Mr. Adam's car... But since you're doing a vinyl, I'd go with something like purple.. Not a big fan of matte paint jobs

Congrats at going to school again...I say that is a waste. If you are on a budget...save some money for maintenance and normal repairs. The car is old and is going to need it soon. Just saying. If you got money to throw away...have fun with it. Think of other things you need for school.....when you graduate....I doubt you keep this car. Just my 2 cents. But, it is your car.....wrap it, fap it, or crap it;)

Just saying....in this economy....going to college, used 99 vehicle...spend money on a wrap.....WTF!!!! And...putting a wrap on an E46....come on now.....but, if you got the money to throw away, do it. No tears when the cooling system goes, you got a cool wrap, no saving for oil changes, you got a wrap...BTW....1999 323 we are talking about.

DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wrap it yo.....wrap that bisch in some fat green and do worries....duckets are nothing dude!!! Also, on a 1999 E46 323 4 door....would be so nice. Check out the Honda forums for what they can do with their cars. Actually, you can wrap the ENTIRE car in DYNOC!!!!!

Plastidip the whole car. :rolleyes:
someone in my progress thread gave me an idea, maybe it was you. Don nguyen can wrap cars for a lot less money than a paint job. I asked him for a quote and the quote is fine with me as I have a school year to save for it as well as the other parts I want. :)

dom you need to take it slow and do one thing at a time. you have big dreams and we dont want to crush them, but you have a pile of mods sitting at home that need to be put on, do that first, then worry about painting the car
