Christmas is here again! Are you getting a new car? (Or maybe you don't know about it yet!) Do you know somebody who adores the car that they already have? If you are looking for the perfect gift for any vehicle, consider an accessory vinyl wrap. Custom accent wraps can transform a car, truck, or SUV to fit the personality of the person driving it. Whether you want to add a touch of class or a splash of color, vinyl can make that happen at a fraction of the cost for a full vehicle wrap.
So where would you put the vinyl? There are many options to choose from, and you don't have to stick with just one. Consider wrapping a combination of areas to create a look that is unique to just you and your vehicle. Here are some options to consider:
Hood wraps offer a quick and easy way to alter the look of your vehicle. Black is the most commonly requested color, and we have installed vinyl on many cars in matte, satin, and carbon fiber finishes. Even on a vehicle with black paint, the contrast is just enough to catch an eye and make a statement.
This wrap material replicates the texture of carbon fiber and offers an elegant contrast to the glossy black paint. FYI: Carbon fiber material does cost more than solid color wrap films (including gloss, matte, satin, and metallic).
One Stripe, Two Stripe, Red Stripe, Blue Stripe
Whether you want to replicate the traditional stripes on a muscle car or create your own pattern, there are endless design options available. We offer more than a rainbow of colors and sheens that can be combined to create contrast on your current paint color. Stick with the more traditional colors (like the black satin custom stripes on the Camaro to the right), or go all out with bright and shiny options. Metallic or glitter really sparkle when designed with a complimentary matte vinyl. With varying thicknesses and coverage area, each application is one-of-a-kind.
We installed standard RT wraps on this red Dodge Challenger, using gloss black and 3M 1080 Anthracite.
You may not think that the roof would be noticeable enough to wrap, but it can make quite a difference. We have used carbon fiber material for many projects, but the most popular color is a simple gloss black to give the look of a glass roof (think Mercedes-Benz style). This simple change has a big effect on the look of any vehicle.
We installed matte black vinyl on the roof of this BMW 335i. You can see the difference in luster between the wrap material and the shine on the sunroof.
Bumpers, Louvres, Windows, and More
If there are other areas of your vehicle that just seem to need a change, we can make it happen. We've installed vinyl on bumpers, louvres, window posts, deck lids, grille center pieces, and more. Sometimes the vinyl is meant to match a particular 'look' and other times it's strictly for cosmetic reasons. No matter the reason, we can make it happen.
Our customer wanted all black for the front of his 2016 Toyota 4Runner. We wrapped the front bumper and grille center piece in high-performance matte black vinyl with a protective overlaminate. With the front Toyota emblem coated in matte black, it really brings everything together - and looks extra tough!

For this piece of family history, we wrapped the roof, deck lid, window louvres and window posts with matte black vinyl. Read more about this 1984 Lotus Esprit's story in this blog post.
