Full wrap is about $2,200 -$2,500 to do correctly by a shop.
Full wrap is about $1,200 - $1,500 in materials depending on where you buy.
Time wise I'd recommend a full day to do it. In a garage or somewhere where there's little/no dust/dirt floating around. Ambient temperature over 75 degrees F and little to no humidity.
Tools: Squeegee, hair dryer (or heat gun but be careful), razor blade, squirt bottle with water/soap solution, hard plastic card (same one you see in Advance Auto the yellow one), LOTS AND LOTS OF PATIENCE, and a small needle to poke holes in the air bubbles that you can't get rid of.
Compact Car Full Wrap: 60in x 40ft (1.52m x 12.2m) 200 sq/ft. Examples: Neon, Focus, Impala, Civic, Mazda3, Golf TDI, Audi A3, BMW E36 and Mercedes C-Class.
Standard Car Full Wrap: 60in x 50ft (1.52m x 15.2m) 250 sq/ft. Examples: Charger, Viper, Trailblazer SS, Corvette, Mazda6, BMW 745, Range Rover, Porsche 911 and all sedans and coupes.
Deluxe Truck Full Wrap: 60in x 65ft (1.52m x 19.8m) 325 sq/ft. Examples: Escalade, Expedition, Mercedes GL, Dodge Ram and H2 Hummer.
To give yourself some practice, start small, doing interior pieces, vinyl wrap your plastic trip pieces, anything that doesn't have a lot of curves, and get used to the material and how it stretches when heated. You'll quickly learn when it gets too hot it can deform and stretch out too much and look like ***. I'm actually going to be re-wrapping my interior pieces with some 3M. I'll do a DIY if the results are good. I mentioned this in a different thread already.
