Not to sound like a prick, but You forget wrapping/graphics/printing is my other job/income source

Its just a matter of choosing the color at this point and it'll be wrapped in a day!

None taken good sir. I remembered you did printing but i didn't know you did wrapping too. I've always thought about going this route when it comes to changing color wayy down the line.

doesnt have to be that far down. Fukn can tell you paint will cost $2k+ EASY and take, who knows how long.

I can wrap a car for half that and do it in less time! Heres the last work we did...Went for a classic woodpanel look

so the girlfriend approved the 3m Matte Blue Metallic. I love it. Its similar to Jazz blue at a glance, but then up close its a whole other thing.

I feel guilty, still, to want to cover the JB paint, one of the few reasons I splurged and bought a AE. So Im glad ifound a similar blue with a different effect. Also like knowing Im saving some years on the paint.

Edit: Heres what it looks like...

Love that color! How long does the wrap last, and what's the upkeep on something like that?

the vinyl is at least a 5year vinyl and you just need to hand wash it. Ive had my roof wrapped gloss black since spring (thru the summer in MI/NC, it was HOT) and attracting tons of heat it still looks great!

Hmm, not bad. After I get some body work done I'm looking into getting my car wrapped until I get money for paint. What part of MI are you in?

wraps for a 4dr would be anywhere from $1500-$2000ish. More if its full digital (printed/laminated/custom color) and obviously less for solid colors.

yeah cost is just a ESTIMATE and is due to a Full Digital Print.

Matte white will be more along the lines of $1200ish.
