  • Check this thread out......vinyl wrapped '56 Chevy

    Got this over from the Tri 5 Forum

    Interesting to say the least

    Lost this thread from server change. I'll try to repost all photos of install Like to start off by saying this isn't for everyone or every car. We are just not ready for a correct resto on our daily driver. this application has a total cost of $475 for materials and took 18-20 hours to install...

      Will the rust accelerate?
      Wonder how that'll work in OR?
      Did he prime it before wrapping?

              that 3M vinyl leaves a shine that is comparable to a factory paint job, untrained eye will think its paint even up close, night time it might reflect light differently giving off a orange tint or glow

                      Wow. Looks good in photo's anyway, and fairly cheap. Must have some talent to do it though. Cool.

                        Sorry did I miss the total cost of wrapping the car?

                        Wraps are not cheap to do but I guess they might be cheaper than the cost of body and paint work.

                        Looks cool and maybe this will catch on and others will give it a try.

                          Like to start off by saying this isn't for everyone or every car. We are just not ready for a correct resto on our daily driver. this application has a total cost of $475 for materials and took 18-20 hours to install. The car had sat for 18 years before we bought it three weeks ago. We washed the car with CLR and a scotch brite pad (light duty) and then dry, and apply Vinyl, This 3M vehicle graphic material is warranted for 5 years. The nice thing about this is we are driving it while getting color changed(no bodyshop down time) and this is removable without repercussions. and we can have our patina or perfect paint back with a peeling. this would be a great opportunity for a tri five owner with a single color car to two-tone their ride with minimal cost and down time(weekend project) without disaster
                          Day of purchase w/original 265


                          Some wheels and a CLR bath

                          And the wrapping starts,Color closest to Nassau blue

                            So $475 plus 20 hours of labor - great if you know how to do the wrap yourself, otherwise how much per hour to have it installed?

                            At least another $500 - $600 in labor at $20 - $30 per hour and that's probably cheaper than most places would do it for?
                            There's always something new to learn.

                              Wrapping the hood on my hated, storebought, field filler in the early morning hours before the DW '12 tech inspection was one of the most tedious and least pleasant tasks I've performed on an automobile . . . and they made it look so EASY at SEMA and in all the YouTube videos . . . .

                              But it is cheaper than paint. And something you can do at home with minimal tools (if you've got the patience of Job) . . . .

                              With all due respect to DW's Eric Yost (who builds some great stuff), I still don't understand the whole faux-tina wrap fad. (But then I can't fathom the fascination with other forms of intentional decay, either (i.e. the asinine "Trash the dress" phenomenon, revival of '90s "Grunge" fashion, the whole "vampire" fad . . . .).)
