Can You Wrap Vintage or Classic Cars?

Even though vinyl wraps are a popular among modern vehicles, there are a few owners that want to get a vinyl wrap for their classic or vintage vehicles. The following considerations should be kept in mind when thinking about wrapping an older vehicle. 

Preparation and Installation Time

Additional preparation is normally required for classic vehicle wraps to ensure that they last longer. However, it also means that the installation process would take longer to complete and the installation costs would be much higher. It is especially true if the vehicle has been waxed recently as the wax will first need to be removed. A challenge that is commonly associated with vintage car wraps is that the dimensions have to be manually measured since they cannot be obtained from the provider’s system. Make sure to hire a skilled vinyl wrap provider in order for these challenges to be fully addressed. 

The Conditions of the Paint

Before the design process is started, the wrap provider would have to examine the conditions of the paint of the vehicle. Whether the vehicle has been repainted or the paint is original will affect the amount of installation time required and the quality of the work. Keep in mind that rust, chipping, and paint damage would show through the wrap and even create air bubbles, reduce appeal, and durability. Moreover, the condition of the paint itself would influence the wrap removal process in case you end up changing your mind. 

The Design of the Wrap

The majority of wrap designs along with the materials work well in case of modern vehicles. However, this is not the case for vintage cars. For instance, it is not possible for a complex pattern to work with a chromatic wrap as it might clash with the design of the vintage vehicle. Make sure that you select a wrap pattern, color, and material that not only suits the design of the vehicle, but also enhances its design. This is where a skilled wrap provider will come in handy as they will work with you to come up with a design that is perfect for your needs.
