Default Vehicle Wrap

I am planning to get my car wrapped and want to do it myself. Since I also have never tried installing vehicle wraps so might stuck in such situation. Does anyone have some tips to do it neatly and with no hassle? The guidelines will be extremely helpful.

Welcome to the forum from Texas.

IMO, you are a BRAVE man to tackle something like a complete vehicle on you first attempt! You won't know if you can do it until you try.

Please go to the new members section and tell us more about your Cruiser, include photos, and introduce yourself.

PT Cruiser Wraps...









Actually, the first one (Patriot Cruiser) I know is a wrap). The others "might" be paint, or could be a wrap.

here nitro. this one is wrapped with Cardinal Red Avery SW900 series supreme wrap film. i prefer this over 3M. trick with the tight curves is to wave the car over a bic lighter. this is the largest car i've ever done a complete wrap on.

Vehicle wrap is incredibly easy to do. I'm not sure why everyone is making a big deal out of it.

All you need to do is go down to a local vehicle wrap shop and pay the nice people to wave their wands and use their magic since it's physically impossible for anyone without magical powers to do vehicle wrap.

Typical vehicle wrap specialist.
