Played it "Safe"......wrapped my car in Gloss White

Well I initially was planning on wrapping my car myself until my friend told me I was Crazy. "Why am I crazy??? I asked him. He says to me......


It only costs $100 to get your entire car wrapped here. WTF????? That can't be true.

Sure enough the price was real and these guys do EXCELLENT work. So I let them go to town on the ride. Total cost was $210 because they also wrapped my factory Ellipsoids.


Now for the pics





















Raining like Crazy but here are a few pics back home

Been wanting to get my car wrapped for the longest but prices are a bit high and I'm not so sure I want to try it myself as the vinyl isn't cheap either.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get this done?

Thanks.

Looks awesome by the way!

I've been thru 6 sets of rims and I can't decide what I want now. Probably just throw my last set back on.

The car looks great! I am glad you didn't go overboard, with a wild color. What was the total cost including materials? I know it can't be 210.00 including material & labor, can it?

Holy smokes, $210 to wrap a car! It just goes to show you how much the wrap material is marked up by time it gets to us in the states. I wonder how much went to materials for your wrap job? You should start sending wrap material over and make a profit.

It looks great

Did they "spray wrap" your wheels with something like Plasti Dip? Looks like a great job for $210. When you get a chance could you post some close up pictures of the following areas:

- bonnet (hood) badge
- headlight washer jet area
- door handle area
- area around side grille
- wing mirrors
- trunk lid badge area

I just want to see how they taxkled all the awkward areas really.

The wheels are vinyl also. It holds up really well actually. Good friend of mine has had some rims wrapped for about 6 months and you can't tell it's not paint.

I will get some closer pics tonight but for the price I paid i was expecting to have some glaring problems but my expectations have been far exceeded. When the going rate stateside is $3000+ this is the deal of the century.

The places where they added strips like by the headlights and side gills can not be seen unless you get down and really get close to see them and even then it does not look bad at all. Just walking by, or seeing the car drive by, or even standing right by the car you can not tell it was wrapped.

Looks great...
There's a place in Florida (Miami area) that will do it for around $3k+... When I move there, that's one of the first things I'm going to do...

So what about the door sills and things like that... Did they cover that too?

I wonder how much it would cost to import some Cambodian fella's, set them up for a month wrapping the hell out of some cars and then send them on home. Oh yeah, they have to bring the wrap.

I bet they will beat the Miami price...

It looks like $210 gets you a whole CREW of dudes wrapping your car.
