Price for Fbody wrap

Most likely going to get my car repainted or might have it wrapped. If I paint it I'll keep the same color but if it gets wrapped I'm gonna do gloss black. Anyone know the going rates for wraps? We have a company in Woodbridge that does high end cars daily, just haven't stopped in yet.

Then again, a Silverado has easier panels to cover then a Camaro.

Food for thought, if you have any imperfections in the paint, like chips or faded areas it will show with vinyl. Keep us posted on how it goes, I'm curious.

I have more imperfections in the paint, then nice paint lol. That's why I want to get it wrapped or painted. What I'm really worried about is the rubber from the tires after a burn out on the lower quarter. Not sure how i can take that off if it was wrapped. Almost think a scuff and re-spray is gonna be the easier way to go. Pewter door jams and black vinyl might be to getto for me. ( I would wrap it black)

Its not as bad as you would think, pending thickness of vinyl.

We did my room in vinyl and its all sorts of ****ed up below the wrap. Does not look bad at all IMO wrapped. Is it perfect? No. But its much better than before.

As far as the quarters with burnouts, make that area a smaller piece and allow it to be sacrificial. You may end up with a couple odd lines with the pieces fit but I'm sure if you did it slowly you can minimize that.

If you're serious, I can get you whatever you need (provided you supply a high-enough resolution photo). We can cover that bitch in all the Affliction graphics, skulls & tophats you want...

Prices usually go just like paint. You get what you pay for. The more attention to detail when installing will help the wrap last longer. I'd say 2k+ depending what you want to spend. I wrapped my trans am with my friend and it cost around 500 for materials.

Quality material will run $600-$800 depending on design to do an fbody. Probably more if you screw up.

Front bumper
Hood
Pass Fender
Driver Fender
Pass Door
Driver door
Pass rocker and Quarter
Driver rocker and Quarter
Roof
Sail panel
Hatch
Spoiler
Berger panel
Rear bumper
Plus Misc Mirrors, handles, jams

I would estimate each body piece as a job for ~$100 each, so about $1500 total labor on top of the material cost
