    Love the color.. Just curious though, what are your expectations on the life expectency of the vinyl wrap? I looked into them for business advertising purposes and was told they typically lasted 4-5 years.

    I have vinyl wrapped trucks for my bussiness that are 10 years old and still in decent shape. I would expect to replace the vinyl in 5-6 years or sooner if I want a new color scheme. The cost to do a typical car without a bunch of fancy options is around 3,000$. I was able to work out a great deal with the guy doing the work since he is wrapping 3 new work trucks for me at the same time.

    Haha THANKS!!
    I have the same feeling. It's weird to not call it my white car anymore considering that it's green now.

    That wrap looks great! I'd love to watch them apply that!

    I hope it's not a 2/12 job.

    2/12 job? It's a pretty neat process to watch them do it. It's a heat gun razor knife and a torch, lol. It looks absolutly stunning from up close. You can see a few small dings that are in the car under the wrap but I knew that going into it. I can't wait to pick it up on friday!

    The finished appearance sounds like paint, it's all in the prep. Looking forward to seeing pics of it finished!

    2/12, looks good 2 foot away after 12 beers..... you had to be there

    I'll start all the way back here...( I was intrigued by the Vinyl wrap references so I backed up)

    Those would make for really, really stiff shocks. But since they are going to be used to keep the front end from pointing at the sun,......I get it.
    I know you've probably already said this, but how much weight does all tha S/C stuff add to the front of the engine?
    Yeah,.....where are the pics?

    This is one of the race cars I was referring to when I went on my trasher rant last month. (One of the "high end" race cars that is.)
    While I have to say, I'll never build another, I can appreciate a well done, purpose built race car when it just reeks of awesome like this one. The wrap?.......I'dve never thought that they could make something look good enough to compete w/ paint.
    But yours does.

    It looks really good, and the mechanicals?.....very well done, waay cool.


    For a race car,................:hide:
