Default Wrapping Trunk/Hood in CF Vinyl?

I'd like to know if it's possible to wrap the hood and trunk of my car in a CF sheet, since it's not in excellent shape and I'd like to cover it. I know a sheet might be big enough, but how would I go about molding the vinyl around the curves and such?

Let me know.
Thanks!

Ahh. Although if I take it to a pro, I'll just probably have them actually paint the car instead.

This is a job better left to the Pro's. The trunk you can try but the hood is a no go. I know here in MD you get wraps for 300.00 and up.

Vinyl wraps are garbage...but that's just an opinion.

yea that trunk looks really good...I wish the outdoor life span was longer than about 4 years but I can prob get much longer since she's garaged a lot. Not as much of an issue for you NW guys!
