    Did search but kinda came up blank so my question is have any of you had a vinyl wrap done to your 94-95 and if so do you like it and what was the ruff cost. Now that I'm getting my tranny done when I get it back i would like to vinyl wrap it in Dark Midnight Blue Metallic,the car is rust free with rock chips so I figured just doing a wrap would be a good way to go.

    Dark Midnight Blue Metallic. MMM nice.

    I have a buddy that owns a detail shop, he also does wraps. He charges approx $2,000 to fully wrap a coupe/sedan. (The wrap material itself costs between $300-$600.) It comes with a warranty and the wrap should last a minimum of 5 years if outside all year, longer if kept in a garage.

    As to answer your question of does it look good, yes it looks awesome. Just like paint. He recently wrapped this 370z a rasberry blue and it looks sick. You would never know it wasn't paint

    I just wrapped the roof and side pillars on my 98. Pretty easy to work with after you get the hang of it. I will tell you that vinyl wrap will still show any indented imperfections in your paint though, chips deep scratches ect.

    2k is still cheaper then paint if taken care of but then again I could wet sand it down grab my old Binks #7 gun,mix up some single stage,drink lots of beer and go to town.........j/k on last part.......The guy that does my cars and trucks quoted me around 6-8k for a good basic paint job and upwards of 10k for a real good show quality paint job so 2k for a wrap isn't that bad and a guy can change the color every 5+ years if so inclined.
