Advantages of wraps;
High quality materials equals high quality, glossy, long lasting, durable, and VERY complicated and involved designs.
Wraps are a whole bunch cheaper and less time consuming to repair after an 'incident' ESPECIALLY when a very complicated design is involved. Ya think that custom 6k paint job was spendy the first time around ? Loyds of London won't even insure 'em !

Disadvantage is the lack of that deep glossy paint look. I was just talking today to a guy that does wraps and he just couldn't change the mind of this old school car guy to go with wrap. I LIKE hand lettering and all the hours and hours that go into a real paint job. It gives a car SOUL.....

There ain't nothing better than a fresh coat of clear on a bad as_ paint job.

You've already got 20, 30 or even 40+ grand in your car now so don't skimp on the paint.
