INTERIOR TRIM WRAPPING
We can transform the interior of your car as well as the exterior:
+ Wrapping door shuts and returns will hide the original colour of your car when the doors are open. This creates a more consistent finish.
+ We can also wrap sections of the interior of your car to match or to even contrast the exterior colour of the car.
So, how exactly do we wrap cars?
+ First we inspect the car, to ensure that there is no damage. If we find anything wrong, we’ll let you know and fix the issue.
+ Next we wash, clay bar and dry the car to remove any impurities. This will help the vinyl to stick to the body panels of the car and prevent it from peeling.
+ Then we wrap the car! This is done by applying large sheets of vinyl to the body panels of the car and using specialist tools to ensure panels are covered properly.
+ After the each panel has been laid, your car will be super heated to ensure the vinyl won’t peel.
+ Last of all, the car is given a final inspection and then it’s all yours!

Do I need to inform the DVLA if I get my car wrapped?
Colour wraps have previously been considered a temporary change of colour which has not needed to be registered. However the DVLA has made the following statement:
The register maintained by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) essentially exists to assist in revenue collection, road safety and law enforcement. The police and other enforcement agencies rely on the DVLA record for all vehicle-related investigations. It is therefore paramount that the information stored on the vehicle register is accurate and up-to-date.
By covering the entire vehicle in a coloured adhesive/vinyl wrap, it is the DVLA’s view that the colour change should be recorded. To notify a change of colour you should complete section 7 of the registration certificate V5C and return it to DVLA Swansea SA991BA. You should receive a replacement within two to four weeks.
It is important to note that partial colour wraps and printed graphic wraps are currently excluded from this policy change but if in doubt, we recommend that you contact the DVLA to confirm.
Can a Wrapped car be Detailed or get a Ceramic Coating?
Yes, wrapped cars can be detailed and ceramic coated as normal. We’d recommend getting your car detailed by us, as we are specialists in maintaining and detailing wrapped cars.
Will a Vinyl Wrap protect my car?
Yes, vinyl acts as a protective barrier. It will protect your car from stone chips, scratches, scuffs, birdlime, harsh weather conditions and road debris.
Do you cut on the car?
No we don’t. We use snitties and knife-less tape to cut large sizes of vinyl to shape. We do sometimes use knives to cut out small intricate details, however the blade will never touch the paintwork of your car. Our technicians have decades of experience using specialist tools.
Have you Wrapped many cars?
Yes! Our trained technicians have worked on 100’s of supercars and luxury cars.
How long does it take to wrap a car?
Depending on your intended design and choice of vinyl, wrapping your car can take from 3 – 5 working days.
What finishes are achievable with Vinyl Wrapping?
Finishes can include gloss, satin, matte, chrome, satin-chrome, flip colours and more!
How do you make Decals?
Once you’re happy with the design, we’ll use our state of the art plotting machines to cut the vinyl to shape. We’ll then apply the vinyl to your car using transfer paper.
