Wrapping the wings in vinyl

Now 3/4 done with the wings and learning how to wrap better. I bought a rubber roller from the crafts store and that helps to push down and get the adhesive to stick with less chance of scraping the surface.

I tried using a spray polymer wax after finishing the right wing and that seemed to add a nice finish.

Vinyl wrap begins

So I decided to try 3M 1080 vinyl wrap from metrorestyling.com

I decided to wrap from trailing edge to trailing edge so this leaves no seam at the leading edge but means that there will be seam at mid span at the end of the fuel tank since the vinyl rolls are 5 feet wide. Trailing edge to trailing edge is about 94 inches  I started with an 8 by 5 foot piece.
