Why It's Important to Vinyl Wrap an Exotic Car

Accidents happen.

They are inevitable when you have hundreds of millions driving vehicles every day. Humans aren't perfect, and especially in this day and age of distracted driving, it seems like more accidents are happening every day.

Wouldn't you want to offer your investment the best protection it can get?

Full Color-Change Vehicle wraps are not only insanely stylish with over 300 colors and options to choose from, they protect your paint

Take a look at this 2006 astonishing Lamborghini Gallardo wrapped in 3M's Brushed Black Metallic, that wasunfortunately side-swiped by a distracted driver.

See those large scratches on the surface of the Brushed Black Metallic Vinyl Wrap?

Those same scratches would have DESTROYED the beautiful black paint finish on this Lamborghini Gallardo, costing the owner tens of thousands just to restore it to a semi-original state.

Not to mention, if paintwork had to be done on this Lamborghini, the resale value would drop SIGNIFICANTLY, since no paint work can match the quality of a Factory OEM paint job.

Thankfully, repairing this Lamborghini will cost a fraction of what it would have if it wasn't wrapped. All it needs is to have those two panels removed and rewrapped and its ready to go!

Think about the peace of mind that YOU would receive if the same situation happened to you.

Nissan 370z - Satin Carmine Red by Guala Customs

We truly underestimated the difficulty of this job! The Nissan 370z's disassembly process is pretty complex in some areas. We eventually figured it all out though and came out with an extremely pristine end result. The stock color of this Nissan 370z was actually blue, but we covered every square inch in Avery Dennison SW900 Satin Carmine Red. This is one of our best full vehicle wraps to date, and there's a lot more to come!

How to Clean and Maintain a Vinyl Wrap

Many people often think that vinyl wraps, especially matte and satin colors, are extremely easy to damage and therefore hard to maintain properly. 

THIS IS NOT TRUE!

That idea only applies to matte and satin paint jobs, which scratch extremely easily (the main reason why dealerships have 'do not touch!' signs on their specially-painted cars on display)

Vinyl wraps require basic cleaning to maintain a flawless finish:

  • Wash the vehicle generally once a week, depending on how much exposure it receives to the elements.
  • Gloss colors, use a standard car soap, utilizing a 2-bucket method, and drying with a soft microfiber towel. Follow all directions as listed on the soap.
  • Satin and matte colors we recommend the same method above, using Chemical Guys' Meticulous Matte Car Wash instead of regular car soap.

For a full breakdown on maintaining wraps, check out our "Vinyl Wrap Care" section below.

Oracal 970RA 5 New Colors

At the recent FESPA Digital show in Amsterdam, ORAFOL introduced 5 exciting colors to the popular range of ORACAL® 970 Premium Shift Effect Cast films. These films shift in color when viewed from different aspects, taking the art of wrapping to a whole new level.

 The new colors are: Pearl Symphony, Avocado, Amethyst, Aquamarine and Ultramarine violet. The colors are available in either a Gloss or Matte finish.

ORAFOL introduced the Premium Shift Effect Cast lineup last year with 3 colors: Aubergine Bronze, Green Blue, and Turquoise Lavender, and was met with very positive reviews. People were quickly jumping on the Shade-Shifting films due to their extremely custom look, one that everyone believes is a paint job. Many companies have been formulating their own color shift films so its exciting to think about what colors will be available in the near future.

 “After the initial introduction of the shade shift films last year, the demand for these products has been immense. They truly seem to have filled a gap in the market place, and we are thrilled to be able to add more exciting colors now,”” says Evelyn Zocher, Sales and Marketing Director for ORAFOL’s Graphic Products Division. “I think we have only just seen the start of this exciting market trend towards an increased demand for unique specialty films, and ORAFOL is definitely up for the challenge,” concludes Zocher.

 

Product Specifications:

  • Gloss or matte finish
  • Multi-layered cast PVC film (110 micron)
  • Lifetime: *4-6 year horizontal panels, lifetime vertical
  • RapidAir® application (nearly blisterfree application, microchannels)
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • High durability
  • Adhesive :  Solvent polyacrylate, repositionable, permanent, transparent
  • Roll lengths: 25 m and 50 m

 

*Lifetime varies depending on vinyl care; more sun exposure means less lifetime.
