Scarlett Part Deux

Decided not to sell the car. I'll be keeping it for a couple more years. With that said, it was time to do a quick refresh and make her feel new again. I always wanted gloss red....even before I ever bought my first E60. So now is the time.

Not a huge project this time around, it'll be something a bit less crazy since I'll be driving the car a lot more. Here is the gameplan:

- 3M Gloss Dragonfire Red Metallic vinyl wrap - with the metallic tint...the color shifts depending on how the light hits it...its so beautiful! lol
- RWZ Blackout Mod LCI taillights
- RWZ Custom LCI headlights - ill drop in some polarized lenses, carbon fiber shrouds, might do lighted fins too...depending on how lazy i am lol
- RWZ gloss black side skirts
- Gloss black OEM Style 166 wheels - ill put on my copper 21s for shows...but other than ill be running the OEM wheels
- Custom muffler set up - not sure on the details yet but ill finalize soon

honestly, it's hard to DIY on the web or even in a video. by now i've wrapped like 50 or 60 cars....so its really all about repition before you get really good. there's guys out here in LA that are 100x better than me because they've wrapped thousands of cars...its 100% a skill and not a step-by-step type of thing.

Paint prep, inlays and patience are some of the keys to success though!
