Looking through our other Case Studies, you’ll see that a popular modification to the Ferrari 458 Italia is to wrap the roof and side sills in a new colour and finish. We have previously wrapped these vehicles in both matte and textured finishes but in this example the customer opted for a Gloss Black finish to replace the existing matte roof seen below.
Before the wrap can begin our fitters ensure that the roof is thoroughly cleaned with a specialist solution to remove all particles of dust or dirt. This enables a good bond between the vinyl and vehicle, giving a long lasting great finish. The rear Ferrari badge is removed to give our fitter an obstruction-free working area along with the sills around the side windows.
As you can see from the images, the engine is rear-mounted in these vehicles meaning the roof section is elongated and features a deep recess which makes it challenging to apply a single piece of vinyl. Thankfully our fitters are well versed in these applications and can carefully apply and trim the vinyl to a precise finish.
As you can see below, this simple modification makes a big impact to the overall look of the car while still looking very natural and organic. Can’t decide which roof is right for your 458 Italia?
