    Specracer - did you just do the sills for interior protection or more?

    Just got around to reading the fine print: ‘not for use on GTs that are actually going to be driven’. Looks like I wasted $$ because this girl is gonna be driven! LOL

My first wrap took 14 days, second wrap took 7-8 days and third wrap took 8-10 days. Itís not just the wrap, itís the prep of the paint before the wrap so everything looks perfect and in most cases the after wrap ceramic coating which most have done!
    110% in agreement with your statements!! Thanks again for keeping my girl company in Houston!

    These guys do exceptional work and subcontract to many shops around the Houston Metro Area, which is a long way away(but you never know). They have done work at my house on My 05 GT and 350R. They do clearplex aswell.

    A lot more, down the sides of the foot wells, the pedal box, most of the center section, the foot rest, SJB cover. I did all of this myself, however, so the OCD was in top gear. Done a LOT on the underside too. Time will tell if it was worth it.

    My GT was done at my house and had the full front, headlight, running lights, full rockers, intakes, and around the rear wheels.
    My Mustang was done in their shop in January when it was cold(similar coverage+wing+clearplex). Josue preferred to do it there because of the low temperatures so the film would cure faster in their garage. After the dealer damaged the rear bumper wrap and they came out to redo that at the house.

    They have a van and transport the all their gear. They installed Xpel on my GT and Suntek on the Mustang, I prefer the latter.

    Houston is a large city and there are many excellent installers with varying levels of experience, business models, and levels of services. I have no financial incentive in recommending these guys, just sharing my experience. Call them if you wish.
