Default Re: About Vinyl Wraps

Got my car wrapped today at a local shop in Mysore!


I didn't get the roof and bonnet wrapped as I was basically looking at a sporty wrap , rather than a total wrap.

Got the Honda emblem stickered instead of a paint spray job!!


Job done at Radium stickers, vidyaranyapura, mysuru!

Further 2 above, got the car wing mirrors wrapped with camouflage color.
Looks pretty majestic imho.

Done at the same location as above at https://*******.com/f2webays

Bargained down from 400 Rs to pay 200 Rs as charges for the wrap.
Pics for the viewing pleasure.

Default Wrapping my Brezza’s front grill

Hi,
I just wrapped my Vitara Brezza’s front chrome grill.
I’ve never been a fan of chrome but could not wrap it earlier because no shop in my city would do it and the after market ones were not to my liking even more than the chrome so I had no option but to resist my temptations, but after I replaced my old headlights with the 2020 Brezza’s LED units (which already have chrome parts in it), it was too much bling-bling to my taste and I could not control anymore and ordered some carbon fibre themed vinyl off from Amazon, grabbed a hair dryer, a paper cutter and got to it myself with some help from my younger brother.

I know this is not the best job in the world and has some wrinkles here and some rough edges there but still I’m proud of myself because honestly I thought I will make a disaster out of it but in my opinion I did fairly well given my inexperience in wrapping or any DIYs for that matter.

Thought I’d take some suggestions from my fellow BHPians regarding my work and also that should I go ahead and wrap those chrome “U”s above the grill?
I am also attaching a picture from the time I did had not wrapped it for the comparison.

Looking forward to your responses.

Very nicely done, considering it that most decal shops refuse to do it for various reasons and it is your first try at Vinyl wrap.

If it is a general vinyl and not wrap material, one can use the following method
1) Mix Johnson baby shampoo/ezee/gentell mixed with water in a spray can
2) Remove the paper over the sticky area and generously spray on the sticky side of the vinyl
3) Place the vinyl over the area to be covered
4) Use a squeegee and gently push the water way
5) Dry with the air dryer and park the car in hot son for an hour.

The above method works on flat surface and I haven't tried on curvy panels. I got to understand from some of the decal guys that the wrap grade vinyls don't go well with soapy water.

Thanks for your suggestion, much appreciated.

I had actually seen the Maruti Accesories guy use that method when he applied the genuine stickers I got for the car when I bought it but actually in this case the vinyl was a wrap vinyl and I don’t think that I could’ve used it with soap water, the mistake I made was that I wrapped the right hand side part of the grill without using a heat gun that’s why it has some wrinkles but I learned from that and used heat to wrap the left side which came out much better with almost no wrinkles.

Hope this Gold Wrapped Range Rover Velar qualifies here.

Default Re: About Vinyl Wraps

Need suggestions for wrapping the Roof of my ALTIS in gloss black in Pune. An accessory shop nearby (Carztotal in Bavdhan Pune) is quoting 3.5k for it. can someone please advise if good brand's wrap will matter here or just need a good installer? which brands are considered good?

Any and all suggestions are welcome.
