Re: Car Wrap - Colour Change Opinions

By colour change,what do you mean?
You can get gold as mentioned above,full chrome..or were you thinking carbon matt black?
The black you would need a fairly sporty/interceptor car ..mho.
You could consider chameleon vinyl wrap red/blue or red bronze.
They are the colour shade variations depending on panel curvature and viewing angle.
Since your car is red I think? a motor vehicle notification might not be necessary.

The application isnt too bad once youve done it a few times,but a whole car would definitely be a challenge.
Ithink even the professionally done job wont be guaranteed more than 5 years.They say it can start to detioriorate after as little as 2-3 years.Mine is still fine but its less than 2 years on.

Chameleon vinyl wrap.

Megane 3 styling

edit: Wrapping metal or painted plastic is much easier than the parts Ive done because the surfaces are smooth.Like the B pillars on the doors work well.
If doing it yourself definitely get the "bubble free" type.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
