Wrapping vehicle accent pieces and parts in vinyl is growing in popularity. The idea that you can cover side mirrors, hoods, trunks, spoilers/body kits, interior pieces, and just about anything else we can stick vinyl to is extremely alluring to the auto-customizing crowds. Wrapping your racing seats in carbon fiber or adding matte black to your roof or spoiler is much less expensive than it is to replace the parts with real carbon fiber pieces or to paint. As a result, vehicle wrap accent pieces are extremely cost effective in the long run. Cars deteriorate over time; they lose their value over mileage and road wear and tear. Vinyl wrap materials not only allow you to change your vehicle aesthetically, but they also protect the wrapped areas from the elements and preserve the paint underneath.

With improvements in wrap vinyl technology, the material has become more conformable with a stronger adhesive and allows us to reposition and stretch the vinyl before laying down the pressure needed to activate the adhesive. Removal is also easier and doesn't damage the paint given the release properties of the adhesive. We find ourselves applying vinyl accents to all kinds of vehicles in the shop - from sports cars, to SUVs, to exotic cars. Some customers are looking for carbon fiber on the hood and roof of their Porsche, others gloss black on their BMW roof. Some want matte black racing stripes, or our newest addition, chrome vinyl wrap from Avery.
