    Has anyone every applied a J-Wrap to your REO Grand? I'd love to see some pictures as I'm on the fence with purchasing one. Also, does anyone know if it ruins the finish when you go to take it off?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Stephanie :)

    I have a black grand from back in 2012, that basically, I wore the finish off in places, revealing the aluminum color underneath. The J-Wrap I used is the "carbon fiber" one, although they have quite a few choices.

    I can't say if the surface is marred in any way underneath, since I've never tried to remove it. I'm quite happy with the results, although, as you can see from the pics below, the front edges along the door, and the top of the REO aren't covered by it.

    Probably fine on the powder coat, not so much on the wrinkled finish.

    wow I've got that one but have not put it on yet. How easy was it get lined up? I always seem to put stickers on crooked.

    I really like it. I've had this one for several months and it replaced one of the carbon fiber wraps.

    As for application...the first one I did was on a mirror smooth finish. I had some issues with the corners peeling back but cutting them at a slight angle fixed it. For this wrap I roughed up the finish really good with some 320 grit sandpaper. That really helped hold it on there. I've dropped this multiple times and it gets heavy daily use and the wrap is still like the first day I put it on. Dings and dents to the vinyl seem to be self healing. Very solid product.

    The vinyl is very forgiving if you mess up. Just start in one of the upper corners and work your way around. If you mess up just peel it off (gently) and try again.

    Is that an older REO with the less rounded back corners? I have been looking at these wraps for a long time. I think its time to dress up one of my REO's :)

    Not a image.jpg wrap, it came with some decals I got for my toy-yoda motor home. I kinda dig it though, the shape and color are a bit early George Lucas.

    Mr. Steamy turned one on July 5th. But yes, corners are fairly rounded. :)
