Digital Camo Vinyl Wrap

posted in: Uncategorized | 5

Man, this has been a long time coming.  I was always gonna paint the truck when I finished all the major work, but then as the time grew near I really liked the simplicity, durability and functionality of a vinyl wrap.  I knew it would take some effort to make it look as good as I wanted it to, but there is nothing worth doing if its not worth doing well.

 

I ordered up the wrap and with the help from a friend we got it dialed.  Some small imperfections that I expected but apart from that it laid down perfect.  I will be watching to see how well it holds up now.

 

My tips and tricks for doing this

  • take your time
  • have a partner
  • smaller sections make it easier
  • use heat (but not too much, hairdryer not heat gun)
  • don’t worry about small bubbles as they will work their way out
  • take your time
  • multiple sharp sharp razor blades for trimming and fitting
  • take your time

  1. Great vid just one question, did you cut the vinyl flush with edges or did you wrap around edges for example, door edges or the hood

    • you are gonna want to wrap it around a little bit as the material will shrink over time. I have heard from others that after a few years that is the main issue they deal with, not the peeling or anything like that, but that the material has a habit to shrink just a little bit.

    Where you buy the vinyl wrap, realy fireup to do it on my truck

  3. I’m considering the same wrap except in Desert. How much did you order? I’m not doing the cab and I estimated about 45′. Does this sound about right?
