Hmmmm, that sound like a closing line from Gone With the Wind
Are you are talking about aged FGRVs that haven't had decent care, and were owner painted over the gel-coat (most weren't factory painted)? Yep they can look like that. Most that I have seen in that condition were more often a result of improper painting
with stuff like Rustoleum lawn furniture paint, spray cans, and even house paints.
But, is a wrap going to look any better as it deteriorates, especially if it is applied over paint already in poor condition? I think not.
And not all FGRV's were white. The Hunter Compacts were offered in 6 different colors of Gel coat, and the top and the bottom could mix or match colors. My 1973 stared life White over Blue, was repainted copper over brown by it's original owner, which stayed in very presentable condition from when it was repainted in 1975, until I got it in 2012. And it is now all white with graphics added.
And I don't need to be told what's the current "Style" or what's "Trending". Like Las Vegas itself, much of "What happens at SEMA, Can Stay at SEMA". Putting 2015 styles on an egg is like putting lipstick on a pig.
Cost: A DIY FGRV repaint, using the best marine coatings, such as Interlux Brightside Polyurethane finish, will cost about $250-$300 in materials and is at the DIY level, using the proven roll-and-tip method of application. Unlike carpeting, I consider a repaint "one and done", so I do it right the first time.
A novice trying to do a wrap on a compound curve egg sounds like a recipe for a lot of problems and eventual failure. It's hard enough to wrap decal stripes and graphics on compound curves, much less an entire sheet of graphics.
And when one wants to sell, that cammo, zebra stripe or custom graphics wrap will usually reduce your buying audience and/or price, at least to those with $$$ in their pockets.
Wraps are great for advertising and/or attracting attention, but maybe not much so on FGRV's, and certainly are not for everyone.
I'll wait to see some real, non-advertising, examples, as should others.
