If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Vinyl is Hard

Not the good form of music, but the wrap variant.

Final Product

I went to Autozone to get weatherstrip adhesive because the rear hatch seal was coming off and while there I wandered to see if I needed anything else. Well I came across Farbon Ciber wrap. So I decided doing the hoop and the little hatch glass hinge part would look good.

This meant I had to remove the rear glass which was surprisingly easy. Just four bolts, undo the struts, and she pops right off.

Wrapping wasn’t too hard, but is definitely a skill that take practice and experience to get right. Like most of this car looks really good up to 5 feet away and then you see she is a bit rough around the edges.

God I hate those seat covers. I can’t wait to put in some proper bucket seats

But I really like the final outcome. I think the “black” hoop looks much better seeing as the roof and the window trimmings are all black too.

At some point I will probably wrap the whole car. Probably blue as #blueisthefastestcolor. I have read up that higher quality wrap is better and easier to use so there is that too, but for cheap crap and the first time I am happy.
