Abstract Ocean Vinyl Console Wrap Installation

edited November -1 in Model 3
I've struggled miserably trying to install the Abstract Ocean Vinyl Console Wrap in my new Model 3. Does anyone have any suggestions for places that install these for you in the Chicagoland area?

Thanks in advance for your help.

    I know the pain. I'm usually good at stuff like that. I bought vinyl wrap and an installation kit with all the tools and I ended up going to the pros, Sticker City in SoCal. You could go to the XPel website to locate an installer in your area. http://www.xpel.com/locator/search/clearbra_installers/

    Thanks for the advice. I tried a couple already with no luck, but I still am awaiting responses from a few.

    You're welcome :).
  • I’ve been thinking about doing the console wrap too. If I decide to remove it in a couple of years (gets damaged or is peeling/bubbling), does it remove cleanly (no residue or glue)? I’m new to potentially using wrap material.

    Yes. Removing it is clean. Applying heat first helps.
  • Thanks libean.

    @Lester Green - If you find an installer in the Chicagoland area, please let us know! Thanks.

    X-Treme Graphics & Lettering did respond and say they could do it. They charge $75/hour and they didn’t say how long it would take. I assume 1 hour. I haven’t used them yet as I need to obtain a replacement middle cover.

    @Lester Green, taking delivery of my black 3 on 6/5 and also looking for an installer in Chicago area to do the console wrap and tint. If you get any more leads or get it done at X-Treme, please share feedback. Thanks!

    I installed the Black Matrix wrap myself and I think it turned out great. I didn’t find the installation difficult at all. The vinyl is pretty forgiving.

    I also think it was pretty straightforward with the carbon fiber from abstract ocean. It just takes a lot of patience and fine motor skills.

    I did the black carbon also. Absolutely love the results. I really liked the piano black. But it only keeps clean looking a few minutes.
