    Wrap?

    Anybody have a dragster or racecar wrapped? How does it look? Thanks

    Nothing like paint IMO

    I've seen only a select few that look ok, they all look good from 50-100 ft away but up close they lack the shine. I'd rather have something painted 1 solid color for what it cost to get a wrap. Maybe a 1/2 wrap would look better

    The dragster that's posted on the website looks real good. The great thing about graphics is, if you don't like 'em you can take 'em off easy. I wonder how they hold up as compared to paint?

    Wes Mays car is the nicest door car I've seen I'd love to have that car :lol:

    I've seen very few that looked good one was the Big L's on drr and another was a car I seen at ten tucks a few years back. Maybe they have changed a lot cheaper then paint though. I've spent big bucks on a paint job with Olsons and spent a lot less with locals and a high end paint job is hard to keep up with, I'd think the wrap would be worse.

    If we could find a place that had some shine to it we'd be fine on using a wrap but untill then paint is the way

    Wes's car is sweet !!

    Lidygraphics on DragRaceResults has some nice wraps!! They have pics in a sticky on top of the page and are reasonably priced.
