Default Vinyl wrap questions.

So ive been doing research on getting the roof and mirrors done soon, but im on the fence. Some thing ive ran into is people not really not interested in doing the mirrors because of the shape. And the shops ive talked to also said the more years that the vinyl is on the car the more likely the adhesives they use will strip the clear coat. I do live in a high climate area it can get like 110 or down to 10. Thoughts??

yes more years will cause issues when removing, and yes more curves are harder to wrap, but a competent shop will have no issues handling that, and in my case i plan on painting when i remove my wrap, but also 3 4 years is a long time you may change your mind about the wrap by then, or you could plastidip them...

yes mirrors can be done, I've done them myself:

thew new materials out right now by 3m, hexes, avery have 10 year warranty again fading/cracking, also there is really no risk of paint damage unless your using additional adhesives (like the 3m primer, or likewise)

i've had my roof done for a year and it has been parked outside in 100 degree summers and now outside in -30 winters covered in snow and ice. the Hexis film is standing up gread and has ZERO signs of wear.

At my shop we have just finished a whole wrap on our drift car and a roof wrap on the show car a lot of people are nervous about using vinyl but as long as your using quality vinyl it is very forgiving and with the right heat and tension can conform to any surfice

We use strictly 3m but I've seen others do well I even plan on wrapping my wagons roof
