Vinyl Wrap: An Overview

What is Vinyl Wrap?

A vinyl wrap is a highly durable adhesive film used to protect your vehicle’s paint or for changing the color of your ride, for cosmetic purposes. There are many different brands of vinyl, including but not limited to, 3M, Avery Dennison, KPMF, Orafol, and Hexis. These are the leading brands in the vinyl wrap industry, as of 2021.


How Much Vinyl Do I Need to Wrap a Car?

Some basic guidelines to use when choosing the amount of material you need to wrap a vehicle:

• 60 inches by 45 feet for compact cars (i.e., Volkswagen GTI, Honda Civic, Mazda3)

• 60 inches by 60 feet for standard cars (i.e., Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata)

• 60 inches by 75 feet for trucks (i.e., Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Chevy Silverado)

Please keep in mind that the amount of material you need depends on your skill level. If you are a beginner to the intermediate-level wrapper, we recommend ordering more to cover for any potential mistakes made in the wrapping process.


How Long Does Vinyl Wrap Last?

On average, a well-installed vinyl wrap will last for 3-5 years, but some wraps can remain in excellent shape for 7 years or longer.

Some factors that determine how long your wrap lasts include:

• Type of material used; major brands last longer. (VVivid, Teckwrap, and other China-made films are not major brands)

• Contaminates; chemicals, tree sap, water spots, and not cleaning your wrap.

• Where you live; hot climates with a lot of sun and states that use salt for managing snow can decrease the lifespan


How Much Does It Cost to Wrap a Car?

The cost of vinyl wrapping a vehicle depends on a few factors that need to be taken into account, including:

• The type of material; every brand has different pricing options, sometimes for the same material.

• The amount of material; the more material you need, the more expensive your purchase will be.

• DIY or hiring an installer; if you are wrapping a vehicle yourself, you won't need to take into account paying someone else to get the project done. Please visit www.wraplocal.com to search for professional installers in your area.

Please keep in mind that hiring a professional vinyl wrap installer will typically run you anywhere between $1,500 - $3,000. These prices do not reflect all installers, it is only an estimation.

A Guide to Chrome Delete Car Wraps: The Basics, Benefits & Costs

What is Chrome Delete?

A chrome delete car wrap covers the chrome parts of your vehicle in black, either in satin, matte, or gloss finishes. These chrome parts usually include the window trim, grille, or around the headlights. Metro Restyling's chrome delete wraps are available in 2, 3, or 4-inch widths. Order from 3M, Avery Dennison, or KPMF.

Full or partial chrome delete wraps give your car a more aggressive look instead of the somewhat tacky chrome trim look. Chrome delete wraps typically last 5-7 years, with exceptions made to climates and areas that are rough on vinyl film. When applied correctly, chrome delete wraps require very little maintenance.


Benefits of De-Chroming Your Vehicle

Like vinyl wrap, chrome deletes replace the old repainting and plasti-dipping processes, giving your vehicle a cleaner and long-lasting appearance without touching the original trim or paint.

It is a cheaper alternative and a better solution for many people. Plus, unlike paint, you don't have to keep the wrap on the vehicle after being installed. Remove the wrap whenever you like with its durable and repositionable adhesive.


How Much Does a Chrome Delete Cost?

It doesn't matter whether you choose 3M, Avery Dennison, or KPMF films for your chrome delete. All finishes and brands cost the same. The price only changes based on the width you choose:

  • 2-inch width: $39 for a 75-foot roll
  • 3-inch width: $49 for a 75-foot roll
  • 4-inch width: $54 for a 75-foot roll

Metro Restyling always recommends turning to professionals when beginning to wrap vehicles, even if it is a simple chrome delete job. Luckily, chrome deletes aren't difficult to apply as chrome trims consist of much smaller surfaces than a full-color change wrap.

If you decide to take this task on yourself, you should have no problem completing it with ease. However, if you want to work with a professional, visit www.wraplocal.com to find professional installers near you.

Paired with a full-color change vinyl wrap, you can give your ride the complete badass appearance and package it needs to stand out from the rest. Get started with your chrome delete wrap today by visiting www.metrorestyling.com/products/black-chrome-delete!
