    I've got one of my b-pillars pealing so I was going to wrap them in gloss black vinyl. There are loads of people selling this stuff on ebay. Just wondering if someone who has used some for this job can recommend any ebay sellers or other places to get some from?

    TIA

    I bought mine from a local vehicle graphics shop - 3M vinyl wraps are the best IMO

    I wrapped mine about 18 months ago in glossy black (no pics sorry). Came out really well at the time and I hadn't done it before but they do scratch quite easily. Reckon maybe have redo after every couple off years.

    One of the boys on here has done it event my and is shown in their build thread - seem to remember it was a sprint blue s3 but can't remember whose it was - have a look through the most recent posts in the 8p section for build threads and you'll come across it

    I wrapped mine last week just using the gloss black you see on ebay and it's good stuff. Cost me £4 for 30cm x 150cm which was enough to do the b pillars and some left over for the microwave (the mrs fancied a colour change in the kitchen). One thing I would advise to do is sand your b pillars down and remove any rough edges from around where it is peeling, I will be re wrapping mine at the end of this week as mine had peeled from where I peeled off my carbon wrap last week and it shows through on the gloss black so will be sanding them down to bare metal and doing it again.
