Sure you can. I would see if there are any shops like sign shops in your area that do this. You can see if they cam give you some pointers and tips on how to do a full wrap. The PT has many compound curves so it is in the advanced user category for a full wrap. But you could do almost the complete PT yourself and then the hard areas get an experienced wrapper to finish or maybe assist you to complete it. Or try it yourself just have a little extra material for learning. We did a complete BMW in clear cover and it took 14 hours and 3days to do everything.

my advice: don't do it. quality vehicle wraps are ~$5000 and are only designed to last 3-5 years. the new wrap vinyls are designed to last 7-9 years when properly cared for, but the printed ink will fade much sooner.

i make signs and letter vehicles for a living. whenever possible i hand paint or cut from colored vinyls and they will look great for 10+ years before they start to crack or fade. most of my customers want something that will look good for a long time, not something that will look old and need to be redone every few years.

yeah at 5+k.....it would probably be in better interest to do a full military paint on it :-)

That can last 20 years if you wash it regularly.

And would only probably cost you 6-7K

Here's a wrap one of the fellows did from my Tampa Bay club.



I think the FROG is a wrap also.
