    Thanks, I must admit I have been thinking about a wrap, but it's last on my list at the moment. When all the mods are done, I'll look at making her pretty

    The link is dead, but I googled some pics. Looks rather nice, although a bit darker than what I had in mind. Sorry, I'm being picky

    Yeah, the link has a weird name that the forum does not want to accept as an image format. But I also linked to the thread on IH8MUD where the pics are.

    Wrap it, protect the paint. When he resells he can either peel it off or leave it depending on taste.

    Very nice, makes a massive difference. will Wrap for sure compared to respray, can always be changed back to original.

    reviving old thread

    Contemplating a wrap versus some cosmetic respray on my Paj Sport. Its bonnet and some other spots have some sun damage and Im wondering if a wrap would not better as it would freshen up the vehicle. My concern is will a wrap devalue a car later when its time to sell, would it be better to fix up paint to original specs.

    would you buy a car with a wrap?

    I don't think I will ever buy a car that is wrapped, unless you knew the car before the wrap... You can buy a nicely wrapped car, and when the wrap comes to it's end of life, you remove it to find a surprise under the wrap...

    Absolutely agreed.

    Slightly off topic but related....

    I have always wrapped all my vehicles (full clear wrap) in VPS but a full wrap on my Wildtrak was R23.5K....a lot of money to essentially save the paintwork for the next owner. The vehicle was fully wrapped a day after taking delivery from the showroom floor - yes I'm pedantic...if you choose to be that polite.

    ...9 months later I traded it on my current Amarok Extreme. Dark grey color. I found a place 5 minutes from my home....VPS agent is in Brakenfell and traffic is a dog at best....and he was cheaper by R5K...so off I go and hand them my vehicle.
    They did the worst job ever!!! After having my vehicles wrapped for neigh on 7 years, I think I know a good job when I see one. Prior to the wrap I showed them my wife's vehicle, which is 6 months old and was wrapped by the VPS guy's in Brakenfell, just so they had an idea of my expectations - they said they could do the same.
    The vehicle has been back 3 times....and when I get back home it has to return for a fouth time as the wrap on the mirrors started peeling 3 days after being done for the second time.

    The reason for the above is to give you a bit of background info for my question below....

    What's the negatives with removing the entire wrap
    .....the idea is to just have it done properly. Thanks for your advice. A R850K vehicle looks like #$%^& now because I saved R5K.

    The lesson learned....saving money is not always the case with a cheaper price!

    I was thinking the exact same thing, I have seen videos of where guys just patch with body filler sand flat and then wrap over it. If the wrap is ever removed it will look terrible and need to be fixed or wrapped again

    Wrapping ain't cheap. So I don't know why somebody would spend close to 20K to hide something
