    Change your car color with tape ? "The tape is easy to remove from the original paint. You will have a guarantee of 3-4 years. After that time it is higly recommended to remove the tape."

    Transit buses with paid advertising that covers the entire bus use that process, so its not "new" by any means.

      I like the idea. I know that the process has been available for "bras" which are made of clear wrap to protect the original paint. Changing the color of the whole car or parts at will is a cool idea. Drive it in one color for awhile and see if you like it. Then try another. and so on....

          IIRC most NASCAR and NHRA funny cars are done with tape these days

            Heard on network news a year or two ago that there was a company in the northwest that was paying people to do this with ads on their personal cars. The fabric was available for only a couple of car bodies, though.

              There was an advertising firm in "Sandy Eggo" that was doing it at
              least 10 or more years ago, would basically pay for the car (small)
              if the owner agreed to the terms and conditions of the contract.
              There was a number of cars running around with "smokeless tobacco",
              cigarrets, and etc types of advertising. The city transit buses got
              into it a big way.

                Saw a special where a British Flag was put on a Jaguar. Fascinating. They said the material was about $2000.00. Labor ? Looked pretty good.

                    There is a local sign company that does those car wraps.

                      geesh, if you can afford a Jag, who cares about the labor cost?

                        I want the WARBIRDS design on my Navigator. That would look so great.
                        There is no mention as to how much the material costs, or who does the wrap and for how much.

                          It would be fun...I'd love to put a full size shot of the Bearcat on its enclosed trailer (but so much for security when travelling).

                          Based on what we paid to decorate our TV trucks with commercial quality graphics, I know it wouldn't be cheap.

                            I wonder if it comes in Rose Mist?
                            If I were to wrap a car, I'd use an image of the cars internal machanical bits on the side.
