Vinyl wrapping CP

28 posts in this topic

All the guys that want to paint their CP a different color I think @HCueds is on to something.  I know nothing about this process but it seems really cool. Just wanted to start this thread to lead to more discussion and pictures.

You've got something there!

Here is a type of carbon fiber - similar I think to what he used. Much easier than painting a CP - and just as cheap!

@wolfe_man ok I was under the impression that a heated blower needed to be used 

I was too fast - it appears you are correct.  If looks like it might require heating... of course, that makes sense on a car.  On a CP, you could probably cut and super glue it down.  I'm just guessing here though... I'll wait for the expert opinions.

*Not an expert* and need to buy more to fix the shoulders. 

Okay, the first thing you wanna is make sure you clean it with acetone or rubbing alachohol. Use an exacto knife to cut the vinyl, and to shape it up. Have a squeegee of sometype to smoothen it out and get rid of any air bubbles. As far as I'm aware the blow dryer is pretty much for helping the vinyl become more elastic and easier to stretch if needed. I'll post a "complete" pic

Needs fixing, but it was definitely an "I can live with it" project. I want to get a Wilson decal preferably sky blue to put on the chest but haven't decided yet

Rather than the big W decal, I think the vintage WV one would look even better.

I do really like this idea, and with an option of getting it Hydro Dipped, the designs could be endless. 

Nice job, HC!

:happy:. My AAA buddy said there's some MiLB guys who add a personal touch like a sticker on the lower plate. So i just decided to just make the entire cp my canvas.

Here are some other ideas:

(Various tile images)

We're thinking too limited. We could revive an entire, closeted industry and cult following...

I give you the 1970's / 80's Panel Vans –

I mean, those Wilson Golds have so much real estate to put your ultimate mural on, one that really speaks about you and your personality!

Me? I own a Schutt, and am from cheese-y Wisconsin, so something akin to this makes sense:

Home run.   Outta the park.   

And I also like cheese.   The only thing better than cheese is more cheese.   And bacon.  Lots of bacon.  (Hey, that could be a dip application...)

PS:  Go Packers.

I did this before the start of last season...with that exact vinyl. I don't know why the pictures aren't in the order that I uploaded, so they're out of order.

To refresh one's memory and humor tank, we discussed this in this thread: 

 

Of course, at the time I did this, U-E was in its "no attachment" phase, and it slipped my mind to post it when they came back.
