Whole Car Wrap

Postby Lancer1993 » Wed Oct 07, 2015 10:24 pm

Just wondering if anyone here has done a whole car wrap and what sort of cost you're looking at including professionals to do the work as I think DIY is out of the question on a job like that.

I have heard of it costing up to $5k. I guess it would depend on the quality of the vinyl and if it is a picture or just plain and also the size and shape of the car.

$5k wow, don't have that money.

Ok if it costs that much to wrap then how much for a decent spray job to a new color?

About $3000 at Bodykit Kingdom. Maybe a tad more. Another place (forgot the name) at Sumner Park apparently offers some sort of interest free deal on wrapping. I think they quoted around 4 to 5k. Look for businesses on gumtree, I guess.

Otherwise a spray job is about the same price. If not more. But if you get a crap painter, then there's bubbles, orange peel etc. At least with wrapping, can redo section and added use of protection of the original paint. Better resale?

I know a lot of the cost is the labor and they hopefully use top 3M stuff because I've seen ebay listings where you can get the wrap for much less to do your whole car. I know you need a lot of prep regardless of which way you go.

I've had my car wrapped in 3M gloss yellow. Cost around $3000 in Sydney. Watch them wrap it in stages, took about a week to do. Its pretty labour intensive as they remove all the panels and wrap them to avoid some idiot from pealing it off when your parked in the street.
