    I've done it with the chrome still attached and although you can't do it right across, has to be in two sections its looks great. Doing Neverlandandy's on Tuesday for him. Hopefully won't too difficult again.

    I re-wrapped mine this morning and by god did I do a better job second time around. Wanted to try a few things before doing Andy's tomorrow. One wee trick apart from using the hair dryer was to use some QD on th back of the wrap to slide it in behind the VX badge so that its neat into the edges!

    I also think that a little bit of chrome sets it off, so 30mins this time, guess that was for just the wrapping? How easy is it to drop the bumper, is there any show hows?

    Cheers gents. Wish i had the balls to but i don't take the bumper off. I do it with grill/chrome attached. The carbon wrap is very forgiving and if you make a mistake take it back up heat it and put it back on. I measured it all out first. Tomorrow when I wrap Andy's I'm going to try doing the bottom two bars in one long strip instead of two bits joined like mine. Feel more confident in manipulating the wrap now to try it. If it doesn't work the I'll do it in two and match it in.

    That's the way I did the first time and as the amount of wrap I had left this time I didn't have enough to cut out a full strip. So cut and match. I'll do full strip for Andy tomorrow!
