Wrap of the week
Got approached by the customer to wrap their new van, they’d paid a marketing/design agency to produce the branding and design. They’d had their vans signed previously by the company the agency recommended.
From seeing the visual I knew it was going to be ‘interesting’, seeing the previous van reinforced this, with patches, and pieces cut into the wrap to keep the pattern aligned.
In all honesty, there’s a few things that bug me, but unavoidable trying to wrap straight lines around curves.
Overall it came out OK, the front bumper was wrapped matt black as the stripes wouldn’t work around that. Although it had been resprayed but not removed, and the paint had bled through the masking onto the plastic trims, so unable to tuck vinyl under it, and leaving a horrible white stripe on the edge of the plastics (you can see in one of the pics)
I can see why some people decline to work on vehicles of a certain age, or condition, but I don’t have that luxury. However, the age and condition does reflect the level we went to with the wrap.
Used metamark MD-X, my logic being there’s no real recesses, and the air release will help, with hindsight something with less grad like their metaglide would have helped.
