When I suggested to a friend I was going to Union Jack Maurice, he said ‘Why don’t you wrap him?’ I immediately thought how do you wrap a car? How many rolls of gift wrap would it take, can you get bows that big and how do you stop it from going soggy in the rain? Luckily my friend knows my ‘look of utter confusion’ and showed me a great site on t’internet for a firm of expert car wrappers called Totally Dynamic. I thought I’d ask them how? and why? and they were kind enough to tell me!
We wrap hundreds of cars, vans and any other commercial vehicle you can think of every year. However, a recent vehicle wrap on a Mazda MX5 seems to have created a bit of a stir.
We knew something had caught the attention of owners when we started to receive calls within half and hour of adding photos of the completed car in bright yellow to our website gallery. Since then our centres have been inundated with calls and emails from MX5 fans who are now seeing the advantages of wrapping their little sporty numbers.
They not only offer your car protection but also change the cosmetic look of your car. The car wrap we completed recently was on a silver Mazda MX5 which we transformed to a lovely bright yellow. If you are like Maurice on Mazda Madness and you would like a Union Jack wrap then we can go as mad or as conservative as you wish to be.
It’s often quite amusing when people call us, as it’s a fairly new trend (for consumer cars anyway) people don’t always know what to call it – wallpaper for cars, cling film, baking foil and so the list goes on! But what is a vehicle wrap and how does it work…..
By applying large panels of vinyl to your car using heat we can change its colour.
The vinyl completely covers the paintwork, to such an extent that people often think you have bought a new car. It works great at protecting your car from from stone chips and minor abrasions caused through general wear and tear. What is also handy is if any section is repaired or replaced due to accident damage, they can always be individually re-wrapped – much quicker than a respray.
Car wraps last around 5 years and won’t damage your original paint work (if factory paint), if you get fed up with the colour you can have it unwrapped back to the original colour or rewrapped in another colour/design – the only limit is your imagination!
So I wasn’t that far off the mark was I? If you’d like to see Totally Dynamic wrap a car in cling film then have a peek at the video above or visit one of their centres throughout the UK and get a makeover for your MX5. Suddenly, my What colour should I paint Maurice? post takes on a new spin. Candy stripes are possible after all!
