this may be true, but i once heard of an advertising company that would wrap your car to advertise a certain company/product and would pay your car payments!!! I think the only catch was you had to drive a certain amount of miles a month or year. Is this true? Has anyone else heard of this? :confused:
I remember those companies... All of which died off years ago for obvious reasons.

Holy crap! For 12k do you get gold plating or what? Isn't there an economy version like those shrink wrap kits for Easter eggs? Just unroll it over your car and point the torpedo heater at it for a few minutes.:D
We have a single-color "paint alternative" that runs $1999 installed. That's ONE color though, usually used to change colors of the car.

For $12,000, extensive graphic design would be involved with a larger vehicle.

Here-here! I have only done a rookie job on mostly flat areas, and a single color, it's not an easy task!!!

My question is how do the pro's get the rounded (convex) areas to come out looking so good? Heat guns? I'm planning to re-apply mine again this summer with better materials, and a more complete install.
Heat guns and patience. :)

Good luck!

I've wondered that myself after seeing a couple VW Beetles and a PT Cruiser with full wraps.
Those cars are almost completely rounded panels with very little flat areas. I'm guessing you would have to have the patience of a monk and the skill of a Jedi.
$1999 doesn't sound too bad for a single color. Anyone know a good shop in Northern Minnesota?
I can't say I do, but I have been asked to fly out to Southern California to do an install. :lol: I told them round trip flight and hotel stay and i'll go anywhere.
