    Guys bought some film and did a wrap myself after pricing them .... no way i was paying that haha !! Im a major DIY guy and said the hell with it , i would try and if nothing else i would have a HUGE big camo sticker haha !! Its not PERFECT but for what i spent ...WELL worth it ! Also did the swim deck edge and up a bit as im waiting for the new EVA Foam pad to show .

    Guys honestly i thought it would be alot easier than it was !! The reason i decided to do it was i found the material at a good cost . It was $200.00 shipped for 33ftx5ft roll . Seems to be good quality. Pretty thick . I thought after ordering i was going to be way short because the boat is a 21ft, however after doing each side and the edge of the swim deck plus waste , i have a TON left !! Maybe they measured wrong ?? LOL !! As far as application , cleaned the boat well prior , heat gun , knifeless tape and seal tape was needed . Time ....took about 4hrs to do the first side (again thinking it would be alot easier but it was pretty difficult ) . second side took about 3hrs . If i would do it over again i would start the wrap in the MIDDLE of the boat and work one way then the other . It stretches easy however that will make the pattern off but it is what it is . All in with all supplies im around $300 .,,,considering someone would charge $2,000 plus .....i think it was well worth it and the time spent 

     

    I will look for the link for the material . It was ordered from China and took about 2.5 weeks to get

    Nice!     I was going to DIY it too until my local shop quoted me $800.   I figured that was about $300 over my material costs so I went for it.    Afterwards they told me they will be charging twice that on the next one!    Not as easy as it looks.   Still tho, I want to learn how to do it.

    Thats a STEAL on cost and install 100% !! If you look online the usual cost for just a wrap is 1800-2200 depending on length and style ...so $800 ya for sure a steal !!
