vynl wrap

At Maggie Valley some of you guys were talking about putting a wrap on your trucks before you were heading home, I have a few questions about this. What's the name of the wrap your using and where did you get it? Do you or can you leave it on permanently and can you reuse it.

Not sure exactly what you're talking about as I wasn't there but I can answer a few questions if you're talking about vinyl wrapping. High quality vinyl wrap material is intended for long term use. 3M life expectancy is 5 to 7 years. And if it's garage kept and well maintained with a good vinyl cleaner, it can last even longer. But one of the neat things about the product is that it can be removed with no damage to the underlying surface. However, it is not re-useable. It's a one time shot kinda deal.

Hope that helps.

If you watch the videos on a complete vinyl wrap they use some heat and stretch it to fit in different directions and cut and tuck it to fit so that would be another reason it can't be used again.

In Rapid City I was talking to the police department about their cars. They use the traditional black and white cars. In the past they custom painted them and when they were done they sold them and took a bath on them because no one wanted a black high mileage car with white doors on it. Now they skip the custom paint and order plain black cars and save money there and when they strip them for sale they take the white wrap off the doors prior to the sale. Who doesn't want a vary fast all black vehicle? They get a small fortune for them now. Innovation.

No, I believe he is talking about a clear protective front end wrap to prevent rock chips and not a more permanent decorative wrap. A few owners use it when traveling and prevent paint damage during their trip.

Here are some examples -
