Looking for 986 wraps

Hello,

I'm looking for pictures of 986 wraps or paintworks for inspiration.
Not just normal 1 colour wraps/paints.

My girlfriend can wrap cars, so I just need to choose what I want for mine, then she'll do it

/Kim

I'm interested in this also. Does she have a pattern for the 986? If so I'd like to create some designs.

What does a wrap job cost (roughly) on a Boxster and what are the advantages of it?
I don't know much about the subject, but I like the idea.
Any photos of members who have done this would be appreciated!
thanks

I have not seen it on a boxster but a few of those tv tuner shows have wrapped various cars. If done correctly looks as good or better than a new paint job, can preserve and protect the original paint also. Seems like the current trend to quickly change a paint job.

Thanks Cunningr, I may have to seriously look in to this then.
I like the idea of being able to change up the colors, as well.

Hello again,
The price depends on what material you want to use and how many different.

1 kind of material is like 3.000DKK for the whole car.
If you want a company to do it, then the price is aproximately 7-10.000DKK.

After advice from my girlfriend, I'm going from a wrap from the company Avery Dennison.

They have a new line called SWF (Supreme Wrapping Film).
And I have chosen the colour Diamond Blue.

Unfortunately I have 2 damages which I have to take care of first.
So the earliest time to get it wrapped is in the spring.
But then I can get my wheels renovated and some other small projects

I like the color choice. Be ready to see the final product in the spring.

I just got the price quote - 300 dollars.
And then there is enough spare for new sidevents and spoiler. When I get around to buy that

I just had mine wrapped, it was $1,600 including the design work. I watched them wrap part of it and wow looks really difficult. Here’s the thread

Car is going in for a 3M Wrap!

Phew.. finally done with the wrap. We did it in a couple of stages.
But I have had some troubles with my generator, so I haven't been able to go out and take some good pictures.

I ended up with another blue color and gun metal grey for vents and rims.

Will throw some pictures up later today - they are not that good tho

maytag - nice one.
I was wondering, what tool did you use to get the spoiler back on?
I have the same ducktail, but I can't seem to find any tool to easy put it back on

No tools required. It's double- sided tape.

But if you need to get the black metal thingy off, you then need to go in from the sides. Canít find a proper tool for that.
That is why I havenít mounted mine.
