What an adventure. I got to go to a Car Wrap seminar in Phoenix. I am very eager to teach my students how to wrap cars with vinyl. This is a Rodeo. The class was in Arizona. There are no salt rusted cars in Arizona. But there are a lot of sun baked cars. The clear coat and paint on this car is toast. It was the center of this learning project. We used practice vinyl to get used to the feel of wrapping it. Wrapping a vehicle like this has special considerations. Many of the other people in this class were there to learn to wrap cars. I was there to learn about that and the techniques of wrapping so I could prepare my students in the proper techniques of car graphics. I focused on a new car with many curves to learn how to wrap difficult surfaces (read curvie).
Seen below is the contrast between the sun baked surface of this car, and the vinyl application.
A close-up of the graphic. Basically we took a nasty looking car that no self respecting gang banger would want to a hot looking car that will probably get ripped off in the next two week. Or at least a "one off" car that the cops will immediately recognize. I am betting they will name it the "dragon wagon".
And now for a shot of the finished project…. the Dragon Wagon.
