Vinyl wrap for stripes/bands?

Searching on here shows vinyl vehicle wrap has come up a few times on here, but no one claims to have done it. Covering the whole trailer, especially the sides onto the roof would be challenging and expensive. But what about just a few foot wide band along the bottom, or just under the metal band? That might be a lot easier to apply and cheap to get in a roll.

I'd love to get a metallic black like my TV.

Or should I just go to cheap shop, and have'm do a little masking and paint the band.

Seems you could try different smaller stripes and just pull them off if you didn't like it. Seems like a fun way to play with graphics without the serious layer of paint.

3M 1080 Gloss Vinyl Wrap

There's even metal looks, chrome, aluminum. Could look really cool. I'd love to see an entirely chromed egg! Someone do it!!!

Please someone - do one in Chrome wrap vinyl.
Then get an airbrush artist to make it look like the polished Aluminum "planks" used by a certain "other manufacturer"!

Awesum!!!!

Adding rivets and panel lines ala a vintage aircraft could be very fun. You could take that theme far! I want a Flying Tigers mouth on the "nose" and the 30's style US star on the "fuselage"!

Really, I'll be happy with some simple black metallic and perhaps some silvery, chrome, stripey bits and I'd be tickled pink. But the exact style??? I want it timeless sort of, but still more graphic than simple stripes?

May have to get all Photoshoppy up in here. When I have the time....

I saw an egg somewhere in the last few days painted to look like the "other" guy. Can't seem to find it now, oh well, I thought it looked good. A wrap could be made to look like anything, a log cabin maybe?

There was a boler wrapped in Ontario. Used for a hydro promotion on saving electricity. It should not be all that expensive since they wrap all kinds of vehicles, cars, trucks, buses and trains.

Do you think vinyl wrap would protect the lower half of an egg from rock chips?

That's great, I was quoted a higher price to do my boler in a simple two-tone job I think I'll look again.

I'm hoping I can just buy a few rolls and a heat gun.

Probably don't need a heat gun this week, supposed to be 106 tomorrow!

$1800 and I'll get paint!

I suspect avoiding covering the most complex curves and not getting anything printed on the vinyl will make it much cheaper than the all over custom graphics jobs.

Somewhat, but not totally. You see cars shipped with vinyl wrap to protect the paint in the plant during assembly until it hits the dealer for delivery.

They do sell clear vinyl for that very purpose, but I think it's considerably thicker than the stuff to change color, add graphics.
