      Vinyl Body Wrap On My 05 Baleno

      Hey guys. So i have basically got a lot of time to kill and was wondering if i could apply a matte black vinyl wrap on my 05 baleno by myself. I had some basic questions about it, like how much wrap i would require and should i buy it locally or import it? What is the life of body wraps? Apart from a heat gun and a blade, what else would be required to apply the wrap? Has anyone ever done it before?

      Insights are welcome. Attaching a link to the body wrap i found online. Comes to around 6k with shipping from PPOBOX.

      m.ebay.com/itm/121173772711

      Any suggestions about different colours that i should look for are also welcome.


      Regards,
      Bhushan

      were you charged customs? Generally for small orders I don't get charged but this was a bigger order.

      Customs do levy duty even for personal orders if it is above 10k. Sometimes they charge for below 10k too, if they think you have under invoiced the items. It usually depends on the mood of the officers that day.

      Yes, that is indeed true. Once i ordered a pair of glasses worth 4 usd from amazon and the shipping and the custom's increased the price by a 1000 bucks. Total amount i had to pay was 1300rs something, so yes it totally depends on your luck.

      No. I am planning to use heat gun and something similar to a floor wipers bottom for applying.

      You would need the following equipement

      1. Heat Gun
      2. Good quality blade ( Multiple ) Checkout the blades from Stanley on ebay
      3. Gripper Magnets - Amazon.com: EWIN(R) 2pcs Vehicle Gripper Magnets For Sign Vinyl, Car Wrapping Crafts Black
      4. 3M Tape Primer - Amazon.com: 3M Tape Primer 94 1/2 Pint 8oz For Vinyl Di-Noc: Automotive
      5. Spray bottle
      6. Gloves
      7. Squeezee ( Floor wipers are okay for large panels, still would need sqeezee for tucking the wrap inside different panels and like the door handle, window rubber beading, etc

      Sqeeze set and magnets can be ordered cheap from Aliexpress
      3M primer from local 3M dealer

      Where are you located ?
