Not thought about that but not sure how well the wrap would last on track etc. Does it not need a clean smooth service to stick too? My front bumper has been ravaged by stone chips with paint peeling in wee places.

Anyone know cost of a full wrap?

you would need the surface to be smooth, but easily done with a quick skim of filler at a bodyshop

 

I believe a wrap is about ยฃ1k or so, not really sure

wraps have come on so much in recent years the effects you can get are amazing

 

but pick your wrap firm wisely as the prep work to stop it peeling is mental im a very experienced sign fitter and done a bit of wrapping but some of the double curves on a vx would get my palms sweating

Mine had 1.5 days prep before it was wrapped (paint was utterly fcuked on both clams though)

 

I just considered ยฃ3-4k on paint wasn't worth it on a car of mines value

 

I've not spoken to them in depth about PPF but the suggestion was is would be relatively cheap compared to the pre cut stuff
