    I have a regular customer who own the attached 2013 Overfinch Range Rover. They bought it already wrapped from a dealership in Chelmsford UK (I don’t know when).

    Its currently on a private plate but the original ref is GU13 LFY – though it may have been on a PP when wrapped!

    They’ve scuffed the bumper and a little on the door and have asked me to repair.. easier said than done as I have no idea what colour the vinyl is.

    It matches nothing in my 3M swatches.

    In the Avery supreme the Diamond Silver (B1930001) is closest but not ‘blue enough’ and the sparkle too coarse… this film looks almost pearlescent.

    Did you wrap this car? Can you help with the vinyl used?

    Any ideas gratefully received!

    Going by where in the world it was bought from, maybe S6 Wraps?
    My initial thought was Hexis as I know S6 use that material, but nothing in my swatches that jumped out straight away

    I’m not aware of them but will look them up, thanks! I guess though, that the car could have been wrapped anywhere and just wound up at the dealership as a px!

    I didn’t spot anything obvious in my Hexis either, one or two possibles in the Grafityp swatch but I’ll have to ask the customer to swing in again to check! Problem is where you have all these smaller manufacturers like Techwrap, could be anything!

    The film looks well fitted and isn’t failing anywhere except on tiny recess on the bumper, good workmanship in my eye.

    Try Joyce signs in Chelmsford, they do a lot of local work, also Funkeefish and Yianni – both worth a look even if it’s just to rule out. If it’s good workmanship then it could well be Joyce
