When you say " wrap " do you mean hydro dipping or hydro forming like Pitdawg guy? Pitdawg mentioned he cant do custom as it costs 1000's dollars to add a new design. With Pitdawg you just choose from a pre selected collection of skins if that makes sense.

However he will print out lettering if you send him the image and stick it to the body decal style with whichever skins you choose around it.

My head hurts.

Wraps usually mean peel and stick stickers, like the all over body graphics you see on 1:1 cars these days, or advertising that covers buses.
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Ah I see different technique altogether if I get nowhere with Frank I will take Justin up on his offer and use his "wrap" buddy.

Yes when I say wrap it's compete graphics on a vinyl sheet. You just place it and cut it and heat it to conform to the body. Honestly....... I won't buy another all paint body again.

Yes sir he does. He will wrap it all you have to do is supply the body to him, then he sends it back. It's actually really easy if you have a hair dryer. I'll have two coming up soon I'll be doing myself. I'll make sure I take lots of pics and info for you guys.

Things are looking up Frank sent me some photo's the other day the paintjob is still work in progress (stone floor tiles need painting blue for instance) but I am very happy with how his masterpiece! is going.

I don't usually show any part of the paintjob until its fully finished as I like to surprise you guys. However here is a sneak peek at one section of the body. The time forgotten long fallen warrior who failed to overcome... the Gauntlet

If you'd have glued a Skeletor action figure, you'd have 3D effects! :P :mrgreen:

That sucks, it was looking really good.

On your more current projects, have you tried using a body wrap like Justin suggested?

My current build (zrp retro racer) I ended up spraying the body black then posted it off to Jo Taylor to be pro airbrushed it should be back in my hands in the next few days so keep a look out photos will be on build thread asap :P
