Chrome Wrap: The Average Joe’s Alternative to an Oil Sheikh’s Daily Driver

It’s simple: girls like diamonds, and guys like chrome.  Any guy who loves his car, bike or truck, will usually try to get a tasteful amount of chrome accents on it when the budget allows.  What one would commonly see is wheels, exhaust, interior trim, engine dress-up pieces, and the like.  But what about having a chrome car?  Well unless you own an oil empire in Saudi Arabia, you may have to settle for chrome wrap.

Some of you may be asking, “What is a wrap?”  For those who are new to this, I’ll explain.  It’s pretty much what it sounds.  A large sheet (or precut pieces of vinyl) is placed over a car.  It’s as simple as that.  Doing this will give the car a completely new look such as changing the car’s color, adding graphics, or both.  Take a look at this black Mustang being turned blue!

So now what about chrome wrapping?  Well, it’s the same concept as above, but now the “color” is chrome.  This will certainly be a head turner.  For an example, take a look at this video from a company that seems to have three names (click here for their website to see what I mean):

Any car modification in my mind comes down to “what’s the price?”  A shop in the Orlando, Florida area wrapped a 2013 Infinity G37 Coupe for about $8000.  That’s a lot of money to someone like me, and probably to most of the people reading this.  Most typical vinyl wraps can cost anywhere from $2000 to $4000 or more.  Is an extra $4000 really worth getting your car to look like a mirror?  That depends on the person with the car and wallet. 

All I have to say, is you better have a garage to keep that thing in, because that would be a (insert chosen word) to clean.

I do agree with your point that Wraps is a word, which is new for many people. It's a different style of graphic through which we can change our vehicle look. Wrapping is good as we want to advertise our business through this. Many types of graphics styles are used in this so that your vehicle totally changed and looks beautiful. Competition in the market is very tough. So, it is necessary that you have to choose a good Signage company for that. One of my friends used Sussex sign van sign writing and it provides a good service. If you want your vehicle wrap you can also try this.
