So ive been wanting to wrap my RSX for a while now, (midnight purple if anyone cares) but i honestly am way too afraid to just straight up drop $600+ on wrap, so i just wanted to get peoples opinions on buying the wrap little by little and wrapping it as time goes on, i dont really care what people think itll look like while the process is going on since ill have to drive it in between wrapping sessions, just wanna know what you guys think.

I think you should practice tinting a window first? That s**t is harder than it looks and I have 552 cuss words to prove it. As in you may want to go to a pro? They might give you a price break if your willing to let them nip away at it a lil' at a time.
It should be noted I rarely if ever try and talk anybody into not taking something on, on there own. :unsure:

Understood and more so respected. I just know I struggled trying to tint my rear quarter windows. Now I'm glad I didn't/couldn't. We have a serious blind spot? To make matters worse cops don't like that? But maybe that's just me....:D

Just buy a bit of wrap and mess around with it, then. I'm not sure what you're looking for here in terms of advice? If you truly (as stated) don't care about it looking goofy, then I don't know what's stopping you.

I think he wants to know what we think about his idea of wrapping small sections at a time until it’s done instead of doing it all at once? Idk, this is kind of confusing. Maybe he’s asking us to validate his idea?

Anyways, I vote for “learn to tint a window first” I’ve wrapped stuff before and there’s a learning curve with stuff that isn’t symmetrical or has weird curves and dips in it. And then learning to tuck it properly without anything sticking out? Huge pain in the ass…

One must know there limitations. But that doesn't mean one should not try. If he don't give a rat's ass then I say let him go. I just know I way lost it try'n to tint some F'n windows and I'm pretty talented? :rolleyes:

Yeah, that's what I was wondering. Kinda seems like he's looking for validation for the wrapping it little by little idea, but then he said he doesn't care what people think of it, so...I dunno?

OP, can you clarify what you're asking here?

$600 is cheap for a wrap, especially done by a professional? If you take care of the wrap, it should last 3-5 years if not longer. Wrapping it yourself little by little is a terrible idea. Save up $600 or put it on a credit card and do UberEats deliveries on your day off 😂

If you're looking to do it on a budget, buying the wrap little by little and wrapping it as time goes on is definitely an option. However, keep in mind that you may end up with some unevenness or color variation if you don't wrap it all at once. If you're okay with that, then go for it!
