Carbon Fibre Bonnet Vinyl Wrap - Car Wrapping How To

NFS Customs Staff / 20 April 2016

Below are simple steps to follow to achieve a bonnet car wrap:

Step 1 : Cutting The Vinyl

We prefer to use either a Stanley knife or scalpel to cut the vinyl to size. Try to leave generous margins so the vinyl can be easily stretched over curved surfaces.

Step 2 : Cleaning The Surface

We find cleaning the surface with warm soapy water or a mild alcoholic spirit removes all residue on the surface and allows for a stronger longer lasting fit. IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT USE ANY GREASE PRODUCTS TO CLEAN

Step 3 : Apply The Vinyl

Slowly apply the vinyl to the surface whilst making sure to push out any air bubbles that may have formed.

Step 4 : For Curved Surfaces

When applying curved surfaces, try heating the vinyl with a heat gun or hair dryer. This will allow the material to be stretched, removes creases, and improves flexibility.

Step 5 : Trim To Fit

Finally using a scalpel, cut out the features on the car that don’t require vinyl coverage.
