Sand Rail Wraps
« on: November 16, 2013, 08:30:02 PM »
Has anyone tried a wrap?  I was entertaining one of these.

Does anyone have another place to use or comments about these?

Thanks,

Same here. I'm concerned about sand and mud damage . On the other hand,when I break a FG panel it can be easily re"painted" with a wrap .

Where's Ds?   Used put wrap on old blue rail. Pretty cheap eBay stuff then had clear sprayed over it.

i'm right here. just getting older so  you'll have to stop and wait for me  rofl rofl

not a bad price and the laminated outer layer at first sounds like a good idea but w/o it and you coat with a quality clear coat say 2 coats, it will shine 4 times better and polish up better than the laminate outer layer so if they offer w/o and you know someone or can spray like a good ppg clear then I would go that route. you can find good ones on e-bay for a little cheaper and larger sized than most need and the cut off's are useful too.

I like the red and black personally and for a little more they'll make you hood and trunk which will do a wing trunk and hood if you have one. they don't come with the vynal laminate if I recall but verify all !! to be sure.

this is the one I used on my last v-6 rail.
the hood is with vynal laminate and side and wing are with out and clear coated. tried it both ways to know for sure.

clear coated seemed to be more durable and better look, the slight scuffs shoes and boots left in it getting in and out were easy to polish off by hand and that vynal laminate was on the hood no less but I set stuff up there and it was permanent once scuffed. 

to ask why $350 and $100.......who knows if you call he'll prob tell you better quality vynal and prob true but who really knows.

ok so I bought another set of vynal grafix for my current rail.  the side panels look close to this pic but more full and more red in them. $195 shipped for more than enough to do the side panels , hood, roof, wing trunk and it's side panels, radiator shroud and center console if I choose to. this guy was nice enough to lay out the hood, roof, trunk combo as one piece and send me pics of different possibilitys.  they will have to be clear coated of course but I pre-fer that and with enemy as a friend that's not a problem  ;D ;) ;)

On the other hand,when I break a FG panel it can be easily re"painted" with a wrap .

Not really. Fixing panels on the race truck is a major hassle with the wrap. When you bash a panel the wrap gets messed up also. It no long peels right off. It can take hours to remove and it has to come off before you can fix the glass.
