I got her painted just a few backs back, but in the very same Paprika Red. Apparently, Iím out of the country and have no sources on how the car looks. . I, too havenít seen the car yet.

Hi. Wrapping does not affect the original paint/color of the car. You can anytime undo it and your car would be as it is.

Wrapping does not majorly affect the cooling. The difference would be usual between black and other light colored cars.

Got the chrome garnish above the number plate wrapped in camouflage print. Got the ORVMs done in the same design.

They told me the same thing, when I wanted to wrap the chrome grill of my S-Cross. I told them to go ahead despite it.

It will be three years since then, next month. The wrap is still holding good, with no issues.

And guess what? While putting the sunfilm they ďforgotĒ to put the co-driver door padding properly in place and weíve got to take it to Skoda A.S.S again(went once already because of broken front centre arrest-probably the 3m guys themselves or the guy who did the steering wrap earlier the same day). They also took photos and videos of the car after putting on the Gloss black roof wrap, stating that they wanted to create some sort of promotion for their store. We told them to just hide our plate numbers, though they probably didnít. Also soaked the interior fabric upholstery with soap solution...we were clearly to be blamed for this-if only I hadnít the foresight to cover it up any tips to get the (soap) water(?) out of the fabric would be welcome.

Your Duster's looking lovely, PapaBravo! From a distance the wrap isn't that much apparent, but I'm sure it'll look great close up. Also like the unique position of the Nat Geo sticker on the C-pillar. Definitely eye-catching!

You are right. Shouldn't be a problem. I had faced the same problem. I did a DIY and used plastidip for wrapping the grill.

Details here (Plasti Dip in India? A Spray-on Rubberized Coating...)

Thank you boniver !! That sticker was a DIY as well. Another picture attached straight from the back

Guys, can I get the visor of the CBR250R wrapped with a translucent film? I am thinking of something like a sun film sheet to be applied, but not sure if it will hold on to the plastic well enough. Any pointers?

Saw this C Class wrapped in 'Radioactive Green' as the workshop calls it.

It was pretty funky but the workmanship was not up to the par. I'd actually seen this getting wrapped a few weeks back and for a fact know that it is white underneath.

Cheers!

Any recommendation for a person/shop who can wrap a helmet? I don't mind paying a premium as long as the workmanship is good.
