Cosmic Blue and Brushed Steel Phantom

We caught up with our vehicle wrapper Scott to see how his recent Rolls Royce Phantom project went, and what he thought of the results! We gave the car a full wrap in 3M 1080 Cosmic Blue, with a Brushed Steel bonnet.

Q: What is the Cosmic Blue material like to work with?

We’ve worked with 3M 1080 for a long time, and we have plenty of experience wrapping with it; It’s flexible enough to work with the large size and difficult shapes and curves found on the Phantom.

Q: How is the Rolls Royce Phantom to wrap?

Overall the vehicle is quite difficult, as there are a lot of large panels. One of the biggest is the roof and rear quarters, as they are smoothed into one piece and so need careful work to ensure a good finish.

Q: What do you think about the finished car?

I think it looks awesome, really nice. The brushed bonnet wrap added a nice contrast against the Cosmic Blue bodywor. The 3M 1080 film is easy to fit and great to work with, and the result is an amazing finish.

Two Tone Colours – The Rolls Royce Signature

Rolls Royce’s have featured two-tone finishes and looks since the Silver Cloud from the mid-fifties; those cars having the lower section of the bodywork in one colour, and the sections above the doorhandles in another, contrasting color, usually silver, but sometimes black.

In modern Rolls Royces, it is possible to specify the vehicle with a contrasting brushed steel bonnet from the factory, however there’s a lot more flexibility in wrapping your bonnet and or roof/boot sections in a contrasting colour or finish.

Recently we fitted a Metallic Silver Bonnet, Roof and Boot section to a Rolls Royce Wraith, which really suits this treatment as the bodywork features a sculpture line that continues the full length of the vehicle, just like the Silver Cloud. This even extends around the famous chrome Rolls Royce front grille, tying the front and back of the vehicle together cohesively.

Another, more premium finish than a Gloss Metallic, is one of our Brushed finishes – there’s a range of them available in different shades. The one we chose for the Phantom above was Brushed Steel, which adds a realistic steel texture, look and feel which adds great detail to the bodywork.

It’s not just limited to Rolls Royces either – we can supply and fit one of these amazing finishes to your vehicle; get in touch and see what we can do for you.

Spotted: Bentley Bentayga

Released in 2016, the Bentayga is Bentley’s first modern SUV; combining the premium look and feel that they are known for, with the larger, off-road capable body of a full-size SUV. The car boasts some pretty impressive statistics; it’s the worlds fastest SUV, with a top speed of 187mph. It weighs 2.4 tonnes and can still do 0 – 60mph in 4 seconds – and still has some off-road capability.

I feel like there’s a lot of potential for customizing this new addition to the Bentley range, we’ve seen before that Bentley’s can look good in both a classic, Pearl White, as well as an aggressive Matte Black. We’ve wrapped Bentley Continentals in both and found great results in both cases.

The strong presence of the Bentayga lends itself to a colour which is custom and personal to the owner – and we can provide that with our range of wrapping films. We have over 200 colours and finishes to choose from, and there is sure to be one for your Bentayga.

Wrapping the M4 Nardo Grey

We had a chat with Brad, after he completed work on the BMW M4 that we wrapped in Nardo Grey. Brad did a large portion of the wrapping on this one, so it was almost his personal project for the week.

Q: How did your overall process work?

I started by stripping the car down, ready for preparation. Once this is complete, I cleaned each panel thoroughly until the entire car was clean and dry.
The wrapping then started, beginning at the rear of the vehicle, working forwards to the front end. After each panel is wrapped, it then gets trimmed along the edges.
When the whole car has been wrapped, the car starts to be re-assembled and cleaned, ready for collection.

Q: What is the material like to work with? Are there any special considerations needed?

We used Avery Supreme Gloss Grey as the main bodywork colour, as this is quite similar to Audi’s Nardo Grey paint option. I find this a really easy material to work with, as it goes around the corners easily, and it takes heat really well – which makes corners and recesses quicker and easier.

Q: What is the BMW M4 like to wrap, are there any difficult bodywork/trim sections to deal with?

Overall it was middle of the road, not too hard but not easy either. The panel I found hardest was the rear tailgate, as it has a large flat top section, and a sharp corner which is curved – meaning some careful stretching and manipulation of the vinyl is needed.

Q: Are you happy with the results? What do you think about the completed car?

I’m really happy with the finished results, it’s one of my favorite wrapped cars i’ve ever seen. I loved the colour which helped, and the gloss black details we added really finished it off.
