I plan to get a 35% tint on new my car and I am dyign to black out the B-Pillar. It looks so sweet.
I read a post about someone using Vynil. Question:
1.) How's the quality on that?
2.) Will it last?
3.) Can you take it off easily if you wanted?
4.) Does it cost more or less than having it paitned?

This is a P-chop of the look I am going for.


Thanks, post any pics of vynil or paitned B-pillars.

That expensive to get that little piece done for 50 bucks. if u lived in florida i have a guy who does vinyl at a better price. my friend had a neon, and he decided to get a big o vinyl, and he got it for 100 bucks. good quality vinyl too.

i was waiting for someone to post that car. It's my inspiration. . . (sheds tear). That car and Silverspooler's (old) GTi are neck and neck for my favorite mk4's on the tex. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

50 bucks is super expensive...do it yourself, it's just a big sticker http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I did this with a gunmetal vinyl, looked good. Go to a sigh shop or something like that and buy a chunk of vinyl, clean off that area of your car very well and spray a mixture of baby shampoo and water on the area, stick the vinyl down and squeegee out the soapy water. Use an exacto knife to cut along the door seam (don't let the blade touch the paint) and fold the edges around.
I have quite a bit of experience with vinyl on cars, PM me if you have any questions

He is on a posting Hiatus. Some say he is still on here under another name.

his car is a perfect example of a tasteful modded, exceptional golf. it looks like a spaceship man.

Yeah great guy...he made derogatory racial comments... http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
I wasn't involved, I just read the thread before it was locked. He's not a winner in my book.
