By applying large sheets of vinyl to your car, you can change its colour to create a totally new and refreshed look – this is called a car wrap.
The vinyl completely covers the paintwork of your car, protecting it from stone chips and minor abrasions caused through general wear and tear. If any section of the car does become damaged for any reason, the vinyl can be easily repaired or replaced. This means that panels of your car can be individually re-wrapped at any time.
Installers begin by giving the car a quick, detailed clean, before they begin the process of removing bumpers, badges, rubber seals and other components of the car.
After which they then start to slowly apply the vinyl, ensuring that all edges are wrapped around, and that there are no loose fitting pieces of material. This process is done through the use of a heat gun, plastic scraper, and a steady set of hands.
Once all pieces have been wrapped, the parts of the car that were removed are then replaced and reinstalled to ensure a quality finish.
Many people often choose to go down the car wrapping route for many different reasons, such as:
1) A quick and easy face lift:
Breathe new life into the appearance of their car by simply changing the colour. Many companies come with a standard range of colours and even some rare, unique materials that can be wrapped on cars.
2) Maintaining a cars residual value:
As appealing as vinyl sounds to car customisation fanatics, it’s also a practical way of ensuring your car’s paint job stays as new as the day it rolled off the production line, and had its VIN number engraved. Vinyl, or more specifically Paint Protection Film, can ensure that your car can be resold and that you get a higher price, as the vinyl often takes the brunt of stone chips, scratches and weather.
3) Business Use
Car wrapping isn’t just reserved for those looking to make their car a standout vehicle. It’s also a massively popular method of advertising for business owners, who often have their work vehicles wrapped in special vinyl and graphics with their business names and logos, all to help them in the promotion of their business, plus they also use it as a tax write off for their business’
4) Individual Styling
Car wrapping is by far the easiest way to change your car, whether it’s a simple colour change, to a unique material switch up to help it stand out from the crowd. It is a more popular method for vehicle owners who are part of car clubs and owners of unique vehicles who are looking to have their vehicle stand out.
