I did not remove any trim pieces. I used a lot of knifeless tape and tucking to have smoother seams. I had most difficulty on cutting the edges. There’s mistakes in there but ultimately I’m happy with the results. No videos :( I was too focused on getting the job done lol.
Thanks for the reply! No worries about the videos--it looks great and I've been caught up in projects myself that I don't even think to take videos or even pics lol. Thanks for the tips!

Great job. I wanted to do my own wrap but I didn’t have the time. So I paid to have it done. We should start the Green Mach-E Club.

What is the life expectancy of a wrap if the vehicle is garage kept and driven daily? I've seen some articles that imply it might be only a couple three years. I'm thinking that climate/weather also have a large bearing on the lifespan as well. Thanks for your response.

Random question for people who do wraps, do you have to report the new color to the DMV? Isn't the color on the registration?

Here’s the car minus all the editing. Calipers not painted here yet.
You did an amazing job. The color and sheen is perfect and wish Ford would include this or at least some type of green at some point.

Looks amazing. You did what I thought about. A space white GT and then wrap it green. Now that I see a cyber orange every other day I wish I had.

How many hours to do the wrap?
How many hours to do it again now that you know what you know?

Depends what brand you get. I used 3M 2080 and they claim up to 8 years with proper care but I do see some people saying 3 years if it’s not in the garage and always in the sun. I did apply ceramic coating on the vinyl which should protect it.

I spent 2 weeks technically applying it but it took 1 month overall because I had to wait for extra vinyl due to the mistakes I made. If I did not have to wait for extra material, it should have only taken a week. Also a bonus that there is no door handles and because I have a premium, the roof did not have to be done. Definitely don’t do it while there’s a heat wave. That is partially the cause of my errors. I was working in the garage when it was 100 degrees Fahrenheit outside. Also get more material than you think you need especially if you are a beginner.

Wow, this is EXACTLY what I want to do. I've been teetering between doing it myself and paying a professional. What was the most challenging part to wrap? The front? Would you wrap again yourself? or pay someone?

Thanks again for sharing!
