Camo wrap. And so it begins.... (Pics)

I started the camo wrap project on my 76 CJ7 (glass tub, hood & fenders) this weekend.

One word: Awesome

This is just a taste. I'll do a write up and post it if there is enough interest after I finish.

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.

Dam that looks too good. I know a guy that did that to his scrambler and it is the best looking thing I have seen.

$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.

Is there any possibility of damaging the paint if you remove the camo?
