    Hey guys! My name is Matt Thomas, and I run a small auto wrap and vinyl graphic business in Eagle County, Colorado. I’ve done quite a bit of work for many of you and am stoked to be an official vendor on Tundras.com. I want to kick the first thread of this page off with some of the work I have done and what I have to offer. As always, if you have an idea for a decal, PM me and we’ll make it happen!

    The main thing that got me started on the forums was the infamous hood inlay. I use a high quality calendered wrap vinyl, precut to 1/4” inside the body line of 2014-2019 tundra hoods. This inlay is one piece and made to install dry with air release properties in the vinyl. Truck example courtesy of @Eclipsed & Floating

    BEDCE184-3AEF-454E-BCE0-26D41FC75946.jpg

    Another thing I’ve offered on the forum is blackout 4x4 bedside logos that can also be customized with color and logos as requested.

    Here is a shot of a fully custom side graphic I put together with @BlueBottle. His photos are the best! This decal runs the full length of the bottom of the cab and fades from grey to black into the TRD logo. Still a favorite.

    I also have solutions for the following:

    -PRO Grille Letters
    -Tailgate Letter Inlays
    -Vent Ring Overlays
    -AC Ring Overlays
    -Stereo Letter Inlays
    -TRD Alloy Wheel Overlay(NEW!!)

    If you have more ideas I’d love to hear them. Please know that everything is made to order and I’m a one man show and running out of my house. The majority of the local work I do is fleet graphics and colorchange wraps. I also offer diecut and full print solutions for small businesses and have an outlet for anything creative you could need. If you have questions, just go ahead and PM me. If you don’t hear from me, know that I’m trying to keep up as best as I can! For all you guys that I’ve made stuff for, POST UP SOME PICTURES!! Show off those trucks. That’s why we’re here isn’t it?

    Matt does outstanding work and his vinyl is quality and easy to install. Good dude to. I just got rid of the side emblems and replaced with a mat black but much higher quality then the ones that were on there.

    @DecalsByDesign Hey, Matt! Do you have any tips on installing the hood inlay. I'm a little hesitant on trying to install a vinyl piece that large. Do you specifically recommend not installing wet?

    I'd love to see some samples of the AC ring overlay, vent overlay, and TRD alloy wheel overlays.

    I'll be posting pictures soon of the overlay. My stock wheels were wrapped with the overlay for 2 years. I am peeling it off and just made a new and improved design for it. Not an easy install by any means but this is one of the first things I ever "wrapped".

    I 100% recommend installing dry. The vinyl that I use is made for dry application. If liquid is used, the problem is that it will live inside of tiny air channels in the adhesive and get trapped there. Over time that liquid will evaporate and leave air bubbles that will in time expand causing the vinyl to fail.

    Any thoughts on providing wrapped bumper ends along with bulge and surround? Something like an exchange process in which I could send my chrome pieces and you ship out pre wrapped pieces??

    Funny you mention that, @BlueBottle told me I should start doing that. I will look to see if I can find some chrome ends to start the process. Only issue I can see is the clips on the surrounds coming back to me broken. My surround barely even locks on my truck anymore from removing it so many times. Doesn't bother me, but might bother some folks. I will try to get something set up. If anyone has chrome caps they want to get rid of, let me know!

    Matt has a video for installing the hood decal. I found this to be very helpful when I installed mine.

    I assume the decal installs just inside the ridges on the hood, correct? Do you recommend using the (for lack of a better term) cutting tape to cut the vinyl where you want it?

    You mean like knifeless tape? I do all my local hood inlays with knifeless tape, but don't use a precut inlay, just a big chunk of vinyl.
