If you guessed the one on the top AND the bottom, you are correct! Struggling to stay alive and living on it's second transmission (the car), Steve wrestled with a big decision. Do we wish the car well and send it off to the automotive grave yard...or do we breathe new life into it? Well let's see... new car payment or continue to save for our once-in-a-lifetime gourmet vacation?
Well, as you can see, we chose the latter. And just like a mid-life crisis, Steve is sporting a new, swanky 2003 Honda Accord. Yes, I said a 2003 Honda Accord. The vinyl we used for this excellent color change wrap, is an Arlon Vinyl in an Aztec Bronze color.
We decided to use a contrasting Carbon Fiber Black colored vinyl for the hood. The cool thing about this Arlon Vinyl and others like it, is that there is a real, tactile texture to the vinyl. Not only does it look (as our kids say)..."Sweet", it gives a neat reflecting movement in the sun.
It was touch and go for awhile, but thanks to the certified skill sets of the Vital Signs Team ( Adam, Bob and Ed), Steve's new sporty ride came through just fine.
Attention-to-detail is always important, but this is especially true when considering a Color Wrap. While a color wrap can be a less expensive option than a new paint job (depending upon the quality of the paint job), the end result should be just as professional. Of course, the end result will also depend upon the condition of the vehicle to begin with. Adam did lots of body work to the rhythm of fill, sand and repeat.
Let's face it, we get tired of our cars like our cell phones. We want the newest, latest and greatest version. But if it still runs perfectly fine and you're just tired of the color (or maybe you want to protect the finish of a brand new car), then Vital Signs can help! Allow us to introduce you to some vinyls that will blow you away. Prismatic, cobra texture, or color-changing, we have a selection that will make you feel like a kid in a candy store.
