I was checking into Black Chrome wrap for the grille and a few other pieces.  The shop I visited said that the wrap (3M) would literally have a 30 second warranty and the cost to wrap all of the chrome would be north of $2100.  I am wondering if anyone can find a less expensive option.

I thought 3M wrap came with a substantial warranty ...

Maybe they are referring to the calculations on page 5 of this bulleting

From the looks of it, I would have to check out Avery and a few others.

I bought the 3 m gloss black it has some nice metal flake in it I believe I paid 40-50 dollar and then did it myself and didn't take any parts of grill off it came out decent a few air bubbles it I could do it over I would make sure the vinyl has airrelease channels it is very durable much more than the paint on my hood

Prior to the wrap I had a local tint shop that kinda scammed me and they told me they would paint the grill with a plastic paint and it look nice for 2 months then looked bad because the corners basically peel and small rock chips would nick it it and then water would get in they offered to do touch ups but it wasn't as durable as vinyl wrap. If you could find some one traine sinthe arts the vinyl looks just like paint and rock chip don't really effect it. I was actually reading an article that they have self healing vinyl wrap. The plastic crap was matte the vinyl was glossy. I would think it would last years not months.
