We’re all appreciative of the many hundreds of hours that car designers spend on making their vehicles look as aesthetically interesting as possible, whether these are luxurious SUVs or humble commercial vehicles. But sometimes the paint colours available from the dealership aren’t precisely what you’re looking for. If you are looking to change the look of your car or van with a new colour scheme, you’re faced with a choice; respray or wrap? An ever-increasing number of people are choosing the latter when it comes to car customisation, so let’s take a look into the reasons why.
For a start, one unexpected but useful benefit of a vinyl wrap is that they actually have two functions.
Not only do they imbue your car with individuality and style, but the layer of vinyl means that your OEM paint job is actually protected from damage. Not only that, but vinyl does not fade in sunlight in the same way that a coat of paint does, so your car will stay looking crisp and fresh for longer. A custom paint job, on the other hand, is still a paint job and is equally as susceptible to scratches and scuffs as when the car first rolled off the production line.
The beauty of a vinyl wrap is not just skin deep, they also excel when it comes to aesthetics as well.
With a bodywork wrap, you are not bound by the constraints of what shade can be mixed as you can even have images and patterns printed. Mario Balotelli’s camouflage Bentley Continental springs to mind as a notable example, but you can choose whatever suits your taste and desires.
As you can imagine, another key advantage of wrapping your car instead of respraying is the cost. A custom paint job is a time-consuming procedure and can cost many thousands of pounds, whilst the same procedure for wrapping is much quicker and cost-effective.
A custom paint job is a great way to make a car your own, but that can cause problems should you decide to sell your car on. A vinyl wrap also makes the car individual and personal to you. But as soon as you decide to move on, the wrap can be removed, and your car is restored to its OEM colour. Not only that, but the paint will be sparkling and damage-free thanks to the added level of protection from the wrap. If you want individuality, enhanced protection, and style, all for a reasonable expense, wrapping may be the way to go for you.
