Don't forget to change the color on your vehicle registration. You'll get pulled over under suspicion of plate swapping.
Thank you, Mr Remy the Martian,.
I remember the lady at the tag office back on December stated something about, I asked what the charges were to have that part of my paperwork changed? I was surprised to learn their were no charges, she told me to wait until
the job was totally done, then stop by with my registration and they could do it in about 10 minutes . Thankyou for your input, have a great day. Just finished the fourth wheel today. Now they all match.

Decided not to convert this vehicle to hybrid. Just plan on maintaining it and the wrap gives it some appeal. The Android radio my son installed on the way home brings it back to modern day technologies. The truck now has Bluetooth to the phone, "gps", rear view license plate camera, dashcam plus a lot more features too. Took out the original Delco Am/fm cd/ cassette player radio and replaced it with the android. Big difference what this $200 upgrade for me from Amazon. Where the old cassette player was located is now my cell phone holder recharger.
Enjoy, Hank

My understanding is that a wrap is good for about five years, so get 'er done or you'll be wrapping the wrap part forever. 😛
A lot of factors play into the LIFE of a wrap, some are warranted up to seven years as long you are willing to jump thru all of the hoops. I plan on doing all reasonable plans to maintain mine, I have already applied a Ceramic top coat to help maintain it. Other things suggested is minimize sun exposure, I can do that have a garage for it, not use car washes, wraps don't like pressure washers anyway, I can hand wash. Wash often, I like to wash cars too. One of the beauty's of a wrap is if one panel goes bad you can change just one panel. For instance the hood cost about $40 to wrap, mine is Gloss Black, next time I may go with matte carbon fiber or maybe a bright blue carbon fiber. Anyway you change the whole look of the vehicle if you change one panel. This time around I am using Gloss Black for the main body with Black Carbon Fiber for the highlight's. Thanks for your interests
