So far it's been pretty easy. Pretty much peel, stick, squeegy and trim. What I have covered so far is not all that complicated shape wise.
The next step is covering the driver's side from the cowel back. That is making me nervous. The heat gun wil get a lot of use, especially where the side of the tub transitions up to the cowel and windshield. I'm going to have to play with some scrap before I tackle that. Lots of angles to consider.

If anything, it will be bedliner. I will probably just leave the white gel coat. It's in good shape and it's easy to clean.

This "Jeep thing" is like dating a really really hot chick, who is crazy! Its alot of fun, you spend too much money, your up all night ending up sweaty & greasy from it, your friends are jealous, you get admission into some sort of weird club... but it gets mad at your for no reason, throws fits seemingly randomly, has unexplained issues which it somehow solves on its own only after you try a bunch of different things (and spend a bunch of money) to solve it... and yet you can't resist getting in it every chance you can.
OK, I just gotta ask this.......Does anyone know of a time when a hunter parked the camo wrapped truck/jeep/whatever nearby where they were hunting, the deer got spooked, darted and ran.....and ran right into the truck.....not seeing it???????
Is the camo wrap very expensive and have you done any research on clean up(car wash power washer)Your jeep is looking good.
$75 for a single 4' x 5' sheet direct from the mfg. The mfg says it takes 6 sheets to wrap a Jeep, not including the hard top.
I did price it at a couple of dealers. One wanted $63 a sheet the other $85. I went direct because I was not impressed with the two dealers closest to me.
What you see in the pics required just over 1 sheet.
The wraps are removable with some effort. When you install the wrap, you go from the rear to the front. This is so (according to the mfg) the overlapping edge of each sheet is "down wind" while driving. Meaning there is a risk of the edges curling if applied in the wrong direction.
Based on that, I would only powerwash from front to rear and/or top to bottom being careful at the seams.
