I wrapped my front bumper

I bought ORACAL 970RA-090 vinyl wrap for my front bumper, rear bumper and still deciding if I'm going to do the grille. It was a pain in the *** but it came out great.

Haven't done the rear yet, it's raining today, so maybe tomorrow. Definitely worth the $60 in materials.

That looks great, does the color match well up close?

090 is the color, it's an exact match for Ingot Silver. I believe they also make one for magnetic, you can order a sample book. Check the F150 forums, that's where I found the color code that matches the UX paint code.

Very nIce job. Looks like a lot of wasted material. You couldíve done the grille and rear bumper from that sheet.
I think the mirrors would look good wrapped, too..

That looks really nice. I've never wrapped anything before but would it have been easier with a smaller piece?

Great job. I looked at getting my grill professionally done and it was like $400 up here in Canada!

unless you buy it in bulk and cut what you need out of the roll, you have to settle for what people sell pre cut. Itís hard to find appropriatly sized pieces. They are usually either way too wide or way to narrow.

I saved the top part for the grille after I noticed how much was left over.

I also got a smoking deal on 4yds x 5ft, it's way more than I need.

That turned out great. I tried wrapping the fender vents and couldn't get it near as good as that.

Looks good and you have way more patience than me because doing that would drive me nuts.

Looks great! I wish they made a match for the platinum white.
