Little late to the party but here’s our Ascent. Wife tasked me with making it “cooler”. Wheels are 20x8.5 +40 BBS CI-R, tires are Michelin Primacy A/S 255/50, and wrap is 3M Satin Dark Grey.

Love the wheels, but I don't know how the other half would feel about them. After all, it's her Ascent...I'm just lucky enough to get to chauffeur her around. :grin:

You got yourself a cool wife! The wrap looks great.



Are those the quickjacks? How do you like them?

Thanks. Love the Quickjack. Just got it in Feb (5000 EXT). A buddy had one and brought it over to work on my STI and I was hooked and couldn’t wait to get one.

Awesome! Been thinking about getting a set as well. What are you using to power them? Just plugging them in an outlet?

Wrap & wheels look great!
Where did you get the Wrap done and what was the approximate cost if you don't mind sharing
Thanks, appreciate it. Wrap was around $2700 from Wraptor Wraps near San Diego. Not sure if the next one he does will be the same price or not because he said removing the headliner to wrap the roof was a bigger PITA than he anticipated.

From what I have read, the wraps can last 5 + years in the right climate.

My wfe wants an Ascent and she wants a dark red color, The Crimson Red pearl is not dark enough.

We were considering getting a White Limited with 3M-1080-Gloss-Black-Cherry

We are not very familiar with Wraps and how long they last, the fact that the wrap can be washed and will serve to actually protect the paint underneath is a huge benefit. The idea of changing the color is nice too

sorry if this is a dumb question, but why did he need to remove interior parts (headliner) to wrap the exterior of your car?

Yessir. Just plugs into the wall outlet. I store them up against the wall when not using them.



Making it harder to find reasons not to pick up a set now. hahaha The thought of not having to driving my WRX on ramps then jacking her up makes me happy. :grin:

Likely because there was "exterior" color visible in the moonroof area, etc., so they had to get to the edges to avoid the original color glaring through in those areas.

Nice Skeeter....


I wanted to do the same on my dark metallic grey Ascent but I got a quote of almost 5K here in WA. So I only did the front part of the Ascent to protect from road debris.

No worries. So the edges don’t peel. Took the roof rails off, wrapped the roof, and put everything back together.

The Ascent is the wife’s car. Mine is a lowered STI and the Quickjack works great.
