Paint Job

I know this is not a Jeep but I want to find out about this paint job or whatever it is so I can put something like this on my Jeep. Does anyone know how they do this and how much coin it is going to set me back? I see car's and trucks all the time having these types of advertisement on them but I cannot figure out if it is a stencil or full blown paint job.

I had a minivan wrapped in an Army logo when I was a recruiter... You can see through it fairly well (like dark tint... not perfect, but doable), and aside from that you won't even notice it from a driving standpoint.

Being that it said Army all over it, and Iraq was in full swing, it got egged, spraypainted, pancake syrupped, keyed, spit on, etc. etc.

it'll hold up to more abuse than you'd expect, and judging from what keying did to it, it would be a RPITA to get off, and i'd think you'd almost have to use a solvent of some sort to do it. I don't think they're meant to be temporary at all

Don't know why it'd be any harder to remove than any other decal.... Except for the sheer size of the thing, some floss to get it going on a nice hot day, and peel away, then clean up the residue...

^^Yea that about it...if its not left on for years. The sheer size. You'd need a bit more muscle to pull on such a large area. Of course on a hot day in the sun, would definitely help. Not in the cold or it'll just break, break, and break some more.

Could be a lot of left over adhesive..I'm thinking just the time it would take to remove..I'd like to actually watch those guys install that stuff, the process they use, and how long it takes.

I've done some good size racing stripes and decals myself on large truck and trailers, but a full wrap, on the windows and all, i'm sure is a big job...catching the big bubbles and debris getting under the wrap..doesn't sound fun to install OR remove...lol

The one on my g-jet wasn't a solid sheet... it was almost mesh... the whole thing had small holes in it, body, windows, all of it...

The places it was keyed the vinyl just ripped easily instead of bunching up the way a decal would.

I hate haters. Now that's irony.
