I'm considering ordering SlickWraps bc I want to change the color of the front of my 6+ from white to black or carbon fiber. Has anyone installed a glass screen protector over the wrap successfully?

Thanks

Just tried it and although the skins are thin, they are thick enough to not allow this to work. I had an oil slick in the middle of the screen. I might just buy a Zagg HDX and cut it to fit inside the skin.

Thanks for replying! I use a zagg glass that doesn't cover the glass in some areas, will the wrap form around its edges?

Don't know what happened to Slickwrapsinc, but I decided to try it. I washed the adhesive side of my Zagg Privacy glass w soap and water (Bc it got dirty after I removed it last week). I then removed my SlickWraps front wrap very carefully. I applied the Zagg and then the SlickWraps and it actually worked out well. I was able to work the wrap into the areas where the Zagg glass has its cutouts. Just not sure if I'll be able to use my clear TPU case without it lifting the edges of the wrap, but I'll try tomorrow after the wrap bonds fully.

Edit: I failed to mention that I used a heat gun to form the Carbon Fiber wrap around the Zagg Glass

Well, a corner started to peel. I contacted slickwraps for a replacement and it took over a week for them to tell me to email them a pic of it. Emailed a pic last week and no response. FYI- Their customer service is awful.
