Title car wrapping is being more and more popular during last several years. Using matte foil to execute wrapping is exert universally, because of properties of the material. It’s a cheaper way to change the look of the car than painting. But it’s better to make it reasonably, despite that the process is reversible. Here are some advice how to beautify our vehicle and distinguish it from the crowd of identical by using matte foil.
Firstly we should decide how we want our car to look. Does it should have sporty appearance or rather more stylish and tasty? This is a vital issue, because by matte foil we can make with our vehicle literally everything. We can wrap parts of the car, as well as the whole body. There are different colored foil used, but the most common are white or black. However, if we want our car took a sporty look, we can opt for some other color, or play of colors. Colors can also create specific patterns or even photo prints. All depends on our imagination and, first of all, needs. Alternatively, we can also exploit shiny foil, which will give the vehicle a modern charm.
When we decide what color and pattern of foil we want to wrap on the car, there is a necessity to select the producer of the material. There are many of them, but we should remember to pick out wisely. On that decision depends not only the quality of wrapping, but likewise durability. It is therefore best to opt for a good brand, which of course can be more expensive. But it’s good not to over-saving much, especially if we want to effect of change lasted for years. If the quality of the material is good, we can count on the strength of about 10 years. Certainly we easily will get to the best companies, making even research on the Internet or confer with a specialist.
If above decisions are made, it’s time to answer one more question: do we want to execute wrapping on our selves or we take an errand the work to an experienced workshop? We should remember that wrapping it’s not that easy, as it look like. If the item is flat, it’s not difficult to cover by, but any round-off or collapse the body surface is a challenge. And car body is unfortunately not a flat surface. Often gluing ourselves we can miss a lot of expensive material. This work is also really time-consuming, especially when it comes to elements, such as the inside of the door. For that reasons maybe it would be better to put the car to the workshop.
But if we decide to wrap the car alone, and there is a possibility, especially with the case of part wrap, what is the most important? We must remember that foils are adhesive but also thermoplastic, which means that before the imposition of the bodywork, they must be properly heated, so that they would adapt to the shape of the car body. We should also decrease glued parts and remove some of the blocks. Only then we can proceed to glue. Best is to cut suitable pieces and shapes first, which can then easily be applied to a specific part of the car. If we would try to immediately stick a whole, it is great likelihood that it wouldn’t be done properly and also we would squander part or even all of the material. It is likewise a possible to wrap a plastic bumper.
After the whole undertaking we must be aware, that especially with dark colors there are highly visible all contamination even as small as usual dust. The same goes for any cracks or chipping paint. For this reason, we should take special care of the glued surface of the car. And one more thing to remember on: we shouldn’t use the automatic car washes, because brushes used there can damage the foil. This would mean that the item needs to be wrapped again. Best is to exert the touch less car wash. We should also not wax our vehicle, even if we have chosen the shiny foil.
Car stickers with matte foil is a major undertaking, but not as expensive and cumbersome, and painting. That is why more and more people are choosing to use this method to change the look of their car. If during the wrapping we will remember a few important principles, as described above, we can be sure that the whole process will pass seamlessly and we will be proud of our work as well as the effects in the form of a changed vehicle.
