GMC, They Said
I've seen vehicles that were 'wrapped' with a vinyl shrink wrap thingee instead of paint. Is it possible to do a GT?
I think that is all a preservative wrap. I looked into that when I was doing custom haying. Was looking at putting about 800 to 1k of small squares in a stack on wood pallets and have them wrap it. Initial cost wasn't all that bad. Problem was once the stack was opened they had to reseal it with their wrap or the warranty was off.You can wrap anything. I dont think it would hold up to work though
5 years tops for sure in what I've experienced. The inks printed on the vinyl is known to fade relatively quick compared to paint. I would still think that for a permanent job, painting is a better choice but some folks like changing things up often too. A solid color wrap may not fade if the color is cast into the vinyl rather than printed on. Another thing---vinyl wrap installation isn't for a hobbyist. Even small pieces can be a two or 3 person project, depending on compound curves and textures. I've had to help a few racers that formerly had painted or cut vinyl graphics from me that thought buying a wrap and just "sticking it on" would save time and expense, Quite often they get in a bind and need to get more assistance with some experience.Never thought of the dirt track cars using them. I got a quote to do olive drab wrap on my jeep.....3500 for the body and doors and 800 to do my hard top in tan. I backed out real quick. Said it was good for 5 years.
