    This last week has been spent out in the garage till 1 am every night! I've had some help from friends too. Kris the owner at All Out Automotive has put in some late nights with me as well as loading the new tune up in it Saturday night when we fired it up. I couldn't have done this with out him!

    The only vinyl wrapped vehicles I've seen have been for business use and had a lot of advertisements on them. This is the first time I've seen it be used with this simplicity to replace a paint job and it really looks good. It could probably fool some people for paint from a few feet away unless the picture is making it look better than what it is.

    Any idea what an average Joe would have to pay for something like this?

    Kudos on the progress.
