How To Change The Color Of A Car Using Wrap

There are many reasons why you might want to change the color of your car. Thanks to the advancements and growing popularity of car wraps, it’s now possible to do this easily and at a price way below that of a professional respray (and it’s not permanent, meaning you can change your mind at any point).

So let’s take a look at the logistics behind changing the look of your car with a wrap, and the pros and cons of doing so.

Color change car wraps: Why have it done?

If you’re reading this you probably already know at least some of the answers to this question. They include:

  • You fancy a total car makeover
  • You’re bored with the looks of your car
  • You want a car with an image that suits your own
  • You might need to add an advertising angle (color scheme, logo, etc.) to complement your home business
  • You have a lease car that you want to sex up, but need to keep the original paintwork pristine
  • You want your car or van to sport your team’s colors
  • You’ve managed to bag a bargain car in a color you don’t like, knowing you can easily repurpose it with a car wrap

How to change the color of a car using wraps: The process

OK, so we’ve determined that you want to overhaul the look of your wheels. But what’s the process? 

In the simplest of terms, a car wrap is the addition of a vinyl “skin” that covers either the whole vehicle or a part of it and is indistinguishable from regular paintwork. In other words, it looks exactly like the car has had a brand-new paint job…

One word of warning… Successfully wrapping a car is less of a procedure and somewhat more of an art. If you take a single thing away from reading this, it’s that the extra cost of a professionally applied application is well and truly worth it. Sure, there are many DIY wraps on the market, but only those with the right tools, training, and experience can achieve the beautiful finish you dream of.

Pros and cons of color change car wraps

The pros:

  • Far cheaper than having a car resprayed
  • Can be done in gloss, matte, matte metallic, textured, or bespoke finishes and patterns
  • Protects the original paintwork from damage and discoloration
  • Instantly changes the look of your car—and can be as sedate or flashy as you choose!
  • If you get bored you can change it whenever you like
  • Good quality car wraps last for many years 

The cons: 

  • You’ll need to inform your insurers and the Department of Motor Vehicles (or the state equivalent) about the change of color
  • You get what you pay for. In the case of car wraps, cheap or DIY options tend to bring poor results. So don’t waste your money on a poor-quality wrap—spend the little bit extra and reap the reward of the car of your dreams

Errr… That’s about it! There aren’t many negatives when it comes to pimping your ride with a wrap.
