We are sure that most people out there think that automotive plastic wrapping is the worst nightmare of all time. Those appearing bubbles, stretching fails are certainly the last thing we want in the world, but we still have to deal with. How many times have you tried to wrap your car around yourself and how many times have you failed it?
But what if we told you the struggling time was over? Would you believe us? You better sit down and listen to everything we want to say because we got some tips over here that will be seriously helpful for all people who want to do a vinyl wrapping on their own.
How to start?
Here we go with the tip number one. We guess you already know the critical step in the entire process is choosing the right vinyl for your car, but we have to mention it no matter what. There are different kinds of vinyl – the regular kind, the plastic with stripes on it, the one with fun images and the one with various slogans, of course. We believe you are interested in the regular vinyl right now.
Well, the vinyl in the markets is put in the rolls which are usually about sixty inches wide and twenty-five feet long, and this will probably be enough for wrapping your entire automobile. If you are interested in the price, which we believe you are, it is not always the same, of course. The regular vinyl such as the one we mentioned above costs a bit more than two thousand dollars, but you have to know the price depends on your car type, the vinyl quality itself and the difficulty in wrapping.
What is your next step?
Once you finally get the vinyl you want, it is time for the car preparation. Before everything else, you will have, to begin with, the thorough cleaning. We recommend you to use the cleaner for the paint and alcohol. All those scratches, cracks, and rust must be fixed as well. What another tip we have for you is to plan the whole process to make it easier for yourself. You will do it faster and a lot simpler if you know where to start, what to do next and how to finish the entire process.
The way you will choose depends on your car and its parts. I recommend you to begin with the bumpers because they are usually the hardest to deal with. After them, everything becomes easier, so the roof and the hood are not a big deal at all. Just make sure your vinyl is cut into different sections.
How to apply it correctly?
Here comes the hardest part of all, but don’t worry – it isn’t that hard. You need to expose the adhesive first and then stick the vinyl on. The best way to do this is to attach it directly to the biggest part and then stretch it to all sides. Make sure you smooth it with hands and do it as carefully as possible. After this just cut off all the unnecessary edges and be proud of your work.
