It's your ride so make it what you want. Of the camo one's you post, yeah the red sprinkled in with the black/greys is cool.

I get to car cruises weekly, some with hundreds of cars. The wrap ones are typically exotics and in solids like satins or mirror in various colors. Others are branded promo cars in whatever logo/graphic the product is...and those typically have "hostess" girls passing out swag...as if it matters wtf they give you...the eye candy alone is enough :-)...and oh yeah sometimes the car is cool to.


Wraps can be anything in terms of graphics or color so there are endless possibilities. At least if you wind up hating it, a hair dryer will get it off.

Yah hated that candy too. But would spend hours mining out the bits.
Hey after a rather visceral reaction to that camo stuff, I will admit I've always liked this moeteef. Yes/No?

I dig the digi lookint stuff, but Im really leaning towards the large camo design with the black grey and red on the white base. Keeps my same color theme as well...

That's what vinyl wrap is for! Go crazy, when you get sick of it, peel it off. It won't last too much longer than a year of decent mileage anyway.

I hear u... but dont under estimate the wraps durability.

Here is my TA in HIGHLIGHTER orange LIQUID VINYL wrap. Going on over a year. And it sits outside.

Looks pretty sweet, I like the subtle stripes. The thing with vinyl is that it doesn't hold up to the abuse of road sand and rocks, so the wheels and nose starts chipping away and water gets behind it. That's when it starts to peel off on its own. It'll last a long time on a show car, but I see people talking about doing it to daily drivers, and that's a mistake.

Actually its liquid vinyl and its extremely durable. The clear on it is actually chemical and scratch resistant.
