At Guardline up in Tacoma, WA a full wrap runs around $2000 to $4000 depending on color and detail. I'm pretty sure that for the green with the door jams ran around $3300 but it's totally worth it. The car is always turning head, you would never be able to guess that its white =P check them out on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/GuardLine

Also wondering how white holds up. I'm thinking about also wrapping my car matte white but if it gets dirty quickly or is hard to maintain I will probably skip it lol.

with the door jams it cost around $3300 but depending on the color, gloss or matte, details and wether the door jams are done it varies between $2200-4500 but they vary around the nation and its hard to find a good shop.

I went for the vinyl because for a matte paint job it cost a ton more then 3K, it's reversible, protects the original paint, and has a great warranty. You really can't beat the benefits with a conventional paint job and thank you

Great, ...now I have to re-wrap my car.

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2307011



...either that or sell it.

glad to see a few others doing it (the wraps) as well. It's also good to see some understanding of the cost and time involved in such.

Yeah, I keep getting mistaken for you and its funny cause I made this account like a week ago and didn't even know about your car till the colors were picked The cars are actually very different when you look close. Oh well thats what I get for choosing one of four mattes that the shop I went to had in stock. At least I we live no where near each other. Anyhow, nice car greg, I like your style

no problem man, ...great minds think a like.

i chose the color for the same reason, it was differnet and not many had done it , ...yet. Regardless, I change my car style like i change my underwear, .well, not really, ...but you'll get the idea. I've been in this game for a long time, .it won't be long before you'll see a new color change and theme on my car soon. It was bound to happen, great cars and colors are gonna be repeated. +1 on doing something different other than white or black matte. Green is awesome and attracts a lot of attention, something I needed to do for my business, ....but now i'm gonna head towards a more mainstream approach with the new 3M matte colors, ...shhhh!!! stay tuned!!

If i didn't say it, ...love the car, ...but that should have been obvious.

Greg
