Vinyl Wrapped FJ's

Has anyone wrapped their FJ? Either partly or completely? I would love to have a matte gray color like the one below.
Wrapping the roof in a cool muted pattern (maybe a black snake skin or something else) would be cool also.

Any pics of completed projects?

If you do a search you'll find a few here. I'm doing my roof in a couple weeks.

Re: Vinyl Wrapped FJ's

I've got samples of various matte 3m products. Generally don't hold up as well as the paint and scratch very easily. Haven't been able to get my scratches out with their repair products.

Talked with a local wrap/sti owner in town that installed a matte on his and he noted its a paint to keep clean and decent looking. No where near as robust as the previous non-matte wrap he had.

Re: Vinyl Wrapped FJ's

I wrapped mine with the 3M 1080 and have found it kind of sheds the dirt. Not as hard to clean as I thought. I have yet to experience an issue with daily driving. Off road branches will scratch the material. It's only vinyl. But I think it's a pretty cool and cost effective way to make your FJ different-

Only thing is.... door jams, under hood, tailgate etc. will be the original car color. That will be visible when you open the door-

Our installer also said that the less quality vinyls don't take the heat gun as well and can flash the matte look if heated too much. 3M is the best.
