What amazes me is how quickly he excelled at detailing. I have know Elijah for almost 13 years. And even though he has always been into cars, it took me by surprise when I saw his first work. He is a truly stand up guy and Vendor that can be trusted and he is an even better friend.

I hope his business blows up and becomes a well known name all around albuquerque.

Best looking SUBARU out there!

Thanks man! It's kind of scary how much different it looks. A few people that had seen the car before all the work was done, asked me if I had already got sick of it and bought a newer one! Then they were shocked to find out it is the same car, and it's not paint!

Thanks Hattori! I'd be happy to, just let me know whenever you're ready!

Thank you! And to answer your question, Yes, Detailing and Vinyl wrapping is my full time job. Shoot me a pm if you're interested in getting your car wrapped and I can go over some details with you.

Thanks Conner! Your pics are the icing on the cake in this thread no doubt!
We'll get that GTO looking proper when the time is right.

I ordered New badges while the wrap was in progress, and they weren't here in time when the pics were taken. Saab is known to have put on crappy badges (at least on these years) that delaminate and discolor. One of mine looked awful so in the trash both of them went!

Where do you source your LED bulbs from? I'd like to start replacing my old yellow-brown bulbs with some nice white LEDs.
Thanks a million for helping me out Wayne! It's the little things that make the difference! I'm ready when you are for the headlights!

I order all my LED lighting from High Performance LED Car Lighting, Light Bulbs, LED Headlights, Taillights, Turn Signals, and Brake Lights. I will get you part numbers for all the bulbs in your car so that you can replace them.

Thank you TTT!
Cars run about $2k+
Of course the final price is determined by how far we take it with disassembly/reassembly etc etc. Also, which route we take to protect the wrap after installation will affect the cost as well.

I have a wrap done on my roof. I noticed you were using vinyl protectant. Is there anywhere local that sells these products or something similar I can use for my c/f vinyl? Just to use for now till I ever make an appt. with you.. ha

I can usually get something set up in a week or two, depending on how quickly the schedule fills up!

Unfortunately, you cannot purchase the products I use locally. As far as protecting your CF roof, it is safe to use pretty much any wax or sealant you can buy off the shelf at O'Reillys or Autozone. Just make sure they Do Not contain any abrasives or cleaners in them. No polishes or compounds, just pure waxes and sealants. I always recommend doing a small test spot before application as well. Some products may add a lot of gloss or streak quite badly.

Forget the Saab, wrap the Cayman!

Thanks man.
I agree with you completely about seeing them in traffic . You'll never see me with them illuminated unless it's terrible weather. I remember seeing a scion TC around town that put yellow HIDs to replace the stock lowbeam lights... Now that was stunning when they were coming your way!

Thanks Jude! You've gotta leave the Matte White on there for at least a while longer! But let's definitely go with something crazy next time !
