Wrapped lamborghini at auto show..

i just went to the car show, and i noticed the "chrome" wrapped lamborghini,it looked... less than perfect.I asked the guy there how much it costs to wrap a car like that, he said 17,000$......

i noticed quite a few imperfections, bubbles,rips and stretch marks, which, for a 17k wrap should not be visible. I used to wrap cars and i KNOW that the 3M wrap they used costs 1400$, + instalation which i know most shops charge 2,000$ - 4,000$ and they will do a flawless job, not like these guys.

Wow, what a good samaritan, I'm so thankful people like you exist.

I saw the lamborghini as well, it looked unbelievable, the wrap took it to another level. Thoughts started racing through my mind about how amazing my Civic would look wrapped, I mean, people would probably be mistaking it for an exotic and posting it in the Sick Cars in Vancouver thread. I asked the person at the booth approximately how much it would cost to wrap my Civic, when I heard $17,000, I nearly broke down. My dreams were crushed, I left the auto show a broken man, drove off in my Civic with nothing but factory paint. Now, you've taken the time to inform me it can be done for $1400, rekindling my dream. Just wait everyone, I'll post pics of my chrome wrapped Civic soon.

if it helps, after i finished wrapping my car, i went to McDonalds downtown, with a table that overlooked where my car was parked and i saw groups of people taking pictures of themselves with the car, or just the car by itself... the kicker... there was a Aston DB9 behind me, noone noticed it. THATS WHAT YOU GET FOR BUYING A GREY SUPERCAR

Owner of that Lambo owns an Aventador as well I think. He's the guy that organized the Canadian Bullrun

Chrome Wrapped Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder - Canawrap - YouTube

im not saying it doesnt loog good, its a lamborghini, it would look good wrapped in bird poop. My point is that its a shitty job for too much money.And i also know from experience that wrapping something chrome will not give you the desired effect. Wrap chrome is not real chrome, it looks like very uneven and it feels cheap to the touch.

The pictures were being taken to post here:
http://www.revscene.net/forums/412982-hall-shame.html

A truly impressive car doesn't need an obnoxious cheap brightly coloured vinyl wrap to stand out and looking stunning, the Aston is a perfect example. It projects elegance, class and performance without over embellishment.

Case in point, the Bond DB5. Subtle silver paint is infinitely better than cheap matte blue saran wrap.
