- Did the wrap on my 350z roof myself. Just Me & my gf. Didnt take any type of professionalism at all. Came out GREAT!

- I have a black 2008 Silverado crew cab. I have been customizing my truck since day one I bought it. I had been wanting to black out the chrome in the front end to give it that sharp look. I had been debating to get it painted but was told the paint would eventually chip off when taking long drives from the little pebble rocks hitting the grille. So I decide to wrap my whole front my self to save money and let me tell you, i am very pleased on how my grille came out. Still need to wrap the chrome bumper and it will be done. But so far it's looking good.

My initial impression was that compared to alternatives like 3M's 1080 film, this vinyl is much more difficult to apply, conforms to bends poorly, loses tack when re-positioned, and the surface is extremely susceptible to fine scratches which make the end result look dull.
With further experience, I'm still not a huge fan, but I will say that side-by side, the gloss on the Vvivid XPO is much, much higher than 3M 1080, and the fine scratches can be avoided by using a buffer wet down with soap and water, or minimized by heating the vinyl after squeegeeing to make it "self-heal." The film is thinner, but much stiffer, and takes a lot more effort to cold-stretch.

- Used the gloss black 2 years ago on the wife's Chevy as an alternative to sanding/painting the bumper chrome - still looks great - easy to use. Just ordered more to refinish the peeling black on the window trim for my RSX - worked great.

- I have use several roles of Peatop film from Amazon. It came in a good box, like VViViD pictures in this Amazon listing. Peatop had a protective film on the surface, as well as the release liner. I was able to use 100% of those rolls. I decide to order VViVid's product. What a joke. Arrives in an envelope with the knife less tape I also ordered thrown in. No box. No protective film. I looked at the roll and the outer layers were scratched to the point of being useless. So I threw that away and said to myself, this poor packaging from Amazon and their suppliers is really getting bad lately. Then I used a piece from further in the roll, which functioned fine, until I put a light on it only to see scratches everywhere....and I only used my fingers applying it! So now I needed my second matching piece, which I unroll from the interior of the roll. It has parallel deep scrapes that were not from the horrible packaging. See picture, look between the light reflections. Then, when I put a light on it from another angel, it has halo like gray stripes going the other direction that you can't see in a photo. I told Amazon. They refunded my money. But I still had to finish my job that took several hours. It looks like crap if you look at it closely because of the films surface multiple defects, right out of the box. Total crap. New I have to re-do the job.

- First I'll say that this is my first vinyl wrap project. I wanted to black out the upper forks of my Harley Sportster and definitely did not want to have to completely remove the entire front end to paint. Figured Vinyl wrapping would not only be way easier but removable if I didn't like it. I shopped around and decided on this brand based on reviews and a bit of research. This Vvivid gloss black matches my bikes paint perfectly! And it was way easier to apply than I thought it would be. I simply left the bikes out in the sun for a few hours to warm up the metal and applied the vinyl with no heat gun. Grab my girlfriend's hair dryer and warmed it up a little bit after applying to remove any air bubbles. Easy and looks really good.

- So I dropped my precious 1 y/o Vespa, I took it to the dealer and other shops for quotes and they all where so expensive, just when I was about to get it fixed, by devine intervention I came accros this product and decided to give it a try, what can I lose right?! Well...I LOVED THE RESULT!! You can hardly tell something is off in that area, only if you look at it or in the sun you can see it more but it looks so good that I’m not planning on spending all those hundreds of dollars on getting it professionally fixed. I highly recommend it for black glossy surfaces.

Looks like I painted my car black for $290 whole job.
Required less work than paint and the only special tool was a heat gun.
Unlike paint, I could correct mistakes as I went and surface prep was much more forgiving than paint.
It fills and covers small scratches or cracks.
It was a bit of a trick getting started, but I got the hang of it quickly and I do not claim any special talents.
Watch some YouTube tutorials and go for it! It's cool stuff!
