    Wraps certainlt don't seem to be in line with the traditional vibe but...
    There are a lot of posts about flat black finishes. Materials, degree of gloss (or lack ther of ), how to keep it clean, etc.... I just stumbled across a video of a Ferrari being wrapped in flat black vinyl. Looks good. The degree of gloss is dead on. I bet it's a snap to clean. Probably a good protective skin for good paint jobs. I can't see a wrap in my future. Most of us start with a car that needs a paint job. Flat black is often just a stop (often a long stop) on the way to a shiny paint job. I just thought wraps might be good food for thought.

    Is that the same as "wrap" music?

    wrapping a factory fresh car and a 50+ year old car are in completely different leagues. Any imperfections, dings, etc are on a car they will instantly show through the vinyl and it won't look good. The amount of work that would need to go into prepping an old car for a wrap job, it would be just as easy to hit it was a couple coats of paint, be it gloss or flat.

    I wrap vehicles for a living.
    If somebody came into my shop and asked me to wrap an old car I would tell them to leave unless it was in near perfect condition and could garantee that the paint had good adhesion to the undercoat etc etc.
    And I would only give it an end of driveway garantee.
    Or I would quote so high that they would get the idea and just go away.:D

    The there is the removal when you get sick of it.
