Vinyl Wrap opinions

I just recently purchased a 98 gt and I'm looking to vinyl wrap my car soon because my clear coat is coming off basically everywhere on the car. I'm leaning toward a gloss black but what colors do you think the sn95's can pull off without looking weird. White and black are my two favorites right now. Thanks Click image for larger version

With vinyl wrapping you can do almost any color imaginable. This is the best vinyl wrapped Mustang I've ever seen.

That looks awful, to many body mods, even if they improve it. Agreed the wrap looks awesome...
OP look at a 95 Cobra R, sn-95s look good in white...

Adventure till you drop

800 is cheap for a entire car.

There aren't that many body mods......
Targa top conversion
Side splitters
Front splitter
Widebody rear fenders
Bagged

Thats about it. Its built to be a show car, and was definitely one of the most popular in SoCal this past weekend.

A GOOD wrap with premium vinyl done by professionals can cost as much as a normal paint job.

Vinyl Wrap opinions

The body mods don't help it or the wheels, which it doesn't matter what I think it's on the other side of the country. So I'll probably never see it in person...

The top is the easiest part also. When you get lower you have door handles and side scoops, wing or any other type of body parts that may need to come off.., then when going around the fenders and especially the bumpers it takes a long time since they have a ton of curves.

I meant if you get their best guy to do your car. Or your car gets sacrificed to the new guy who is still learning, practice makes perfect, and they use our cars as learning tools...
But doubt it will be a good wrap...

Could always try it yourself. It honestly isn't too hard from what i've seen, it just takes a while. Maybe have a helping hand when trying to do tough spots like the bumpers. Sections like the roof, pillars, trunk and hood shouldn't really be too bad.

A friend offered to help but he has also tried plasti dipping a whole car and failed. He is good at powder coating but nah not worth the cost to fail

Plasti dipping a whole car is a challenge. With wrapping you can take it a single step at a time. Start with the easy stuff like the roof, practice on that. Then the pillars shouldn't be too hard, then the trunk. Easy stuff like that. And you can get super cheap vinyl instead of the super nice stuff.

OP, what budget are you working with? Is having you're pony repainted an option?

Have a great day!

I agree. But I'm just stating how much it would cost. It's the buyers choice in what he gets.
