yes, GREAT IDEA!
no, BAD IDEA!
Ok. some of you may know i do basicly anything custom. and have been doing tons of wraps over the years too.! but i just seriously started considering adding it to my long list of my business and seeing if anyone would have intrest in having a car/truck/suv done! so thanks for the input. (i have done vehicles before so i wont be a first timer lol)
cars est. cost will be around 800 to 1600 :
MOST VEHICLES TAKE 1 WEEK TO COMPLETE CONSIDERING THERE IS OVER 20 to 30 man hours logged for each vehicle
ALL! removable seals and trim panels will be removed, along with fenders, door handles, door panels, front and rear bumpers to ensure a factory finish. then upon reapplying trim new 3m double sided tape will be used. to ensure proper adhesion.
this is not a you get what you pay for kinda thing.. "this is a DEAL!" that is only offered to xceedspeed members and friends.
brands of vinyl to be used
3m---- oracal------ hexis
cast or calendered films
ORACAL 651 Intermediate Calendered Film
ORACAL 951M Premium Cast Metallic Film
Avery Supreme Wrap
hexis HX series Cast vinyl
3m 1080 scotchprint
film is easy to take off..does not hurt you paint one bit. (if left on for a few years it would be like taking off a sticker with a little heat from a heat gun will come right off. ) depending on what type you want. they are rated differently. some are for 1 to 4 years (Calendered Film) some are for 5 to 8 years (cast films) depends on product, application and purpose.
of course depending on type used cost will reflect it drastically. calendered film does not conform to areas as well. and is intended for economical use.

Ive been thinking about it. I say do it.

It's a lot of cutting work, and making sure you don't nick the paint is going to be a pain to "deal" with on a customer by customer basis, but it's good money and will make a lot of people consider it!
There's a trick to being whatever you want to be in life.It starts with the simple belief that you are what or who you say you are. It starts, like all faiths, with a belief-a belief predicated more on whimsy than reality. And you've gotta believe for everybody else, too - until you can show them proof. If you're lucky, someone starts believing with you - first theoretically, then in practice. And two people believing are the start of a congregation. You build a congregation of believers and eventually you set out to craft a cathedral. Sometimes it's just a church; sometimes it turns out to be a chapel. Folks who don't build churches will try to tell you how you're doing it wrong, even as your steeple breaks the clouds. Never listen.- From TOUGH SHIT

I am thinking of wrapping my ZX10 and maybe my truck after I lift it
08 Chevy Silverado 4X4 - Haulin Stuff
05 Mazda 3 - DD
05 Kawi ZX10R/93 Kawi KX250
93 Mustang GT - Drag/Cruiser
Go faster until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death
$800 for a wrap! That's great pricing.
well i will be starting this within the next week so pics soon! keep up on the poll! and input! thanks all!!
cost of product will be a huge deal.. since dif. colors and things like that can double and triple from other colors.
Here is a few pics of a roof that I did in 1080 scotchprint carbon fiber[/SIZE]

in for before, during and after pics
I would consider wrapping my vehicle as the paint of my 99 accord is horrible.
How hard is it to take off? My buddy was asking me about wrapping cars and i didnt think it damaged the paint at all. But that would be the deal breaker for me.

If it looks nearly as good as the White Wrapped STi then i am sure a ton of people will be interested.

I had my WRX Wagon's roof wrapped in digital camo - I loved it!
I'd love to have my Jeep wrapped in digital camo as well.
Was contemplating this for my CTS-V.....

Hey Jordan.. Who is the Vinyl supplier? I'd like to look through the available options. Black and white are way too generic for me.

R.I.P. Ryan DeBlouw, Musmaro, you were one of my best friends. Smoke them tires wherever you are man.
I'd be down for a wrap on my next car(2006 Saabaru) but i'd want matte black with CF roof, hood and hatch.
