Custom wraps and colour changes have come a long way in the past 10 years. There are many different finishes available from Gloss, Matte, and Textured vinyl to achieve the look a person wants. Combining different type and colour of vinyl can achieve a totally unique look. The type of vinyl used makes a big difference in the longevity and removability. There are many different companies which manufacture vinyl and they all do it differently. The most important feature of vinyl is the glue. We like to use 3M products because we know that we will not run into any problems during the installation and later during removal.
Paint Like Finish
Achieving a paint like finish is not easy. It takes time and patience. Many portions of the vehicle must be removed (i.e. door handles, mirrors, etc.) in order to do this properly. In order to achieve a paint like finish, an installer has to wrap the vehicle in a way that there are no overlaps or seams. However, larger vehicles cannot be wrapped without a seam because of their size.
The warp on a vehicle protects the paint underneath. It prevents small stone chips and also protects from aging and fading of the vehicle’s original paint. In a nutshell, when the wrap is removed from the vehicle, the paint job looks as if it were still in the dealership showroom.
Vinyl gives us a large flexibility with what can be done to a car. People often come to us to get either carbon fiber or gloss black vinyl put on the hood and roof of their cars to make their vehicle a little different. The possibilities are endless. Have a look through our gallery to see what is possible.
Vinyl or Paint
There are a few things to consider when deciding whether to wrap or paint your vehicle. Vinyl is temporary while paint is permanent. Depending on the type of car and quality of paint job it would require to look great, vinyl can be a lot less expensive. By wrapping you vehicle, you always have the option to remove the wrap to the factory finish paint job. This can be an important factor when selling your vehicle. People sometimes get wary of vehicle which have been repainted because they assume they have been in a accident and the paint is covering up a damage underneath.
