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.

Lamborghini Transformed from Orange to White

We sat down for a chat with a member of our vehicle wrapping team, Stephen, to speak with him about the Lamborghini Huracan he wrapped last month, transforming it from the original Aranco Borealis to a classic Gloss White colour.

Q: What did your overall process involve?

In addition to our regular wrapping process, more trim is required to be removed to allow a perfect finish; such as the large “Sill” trims and the petrol cap assembly. This ensures that all of the Orange bodywork is covered, a perfect colour change.

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

We used Avery Supreme Gloss White and Gloss Black – This is my favourite material to work with, as it’s very conformable and efficient to fit, as well as having a great finish. Some difficult parts to wrap can be pointed edges, the Huracan has quite a lot of them! On certain panels, seperate pieces of vinyl need to be used and joined – however it’s done in a very clever way that makes it almost impossible to see where.

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

There’s lots of sharp lines and pointy bits of bodywork in the design of this car, it’s part of Lamborghini’s style. Me and the team have a lot of experience with these sorts of challenges, and we always have a great result. The original colour being Orange also adds a challenge, as even a tiny spot of original colour visible from the outside would ruin the look – so every panel has to be wrapped very thoroughly.

Q: The gloss black detailing on the car made a big difference to the look, how do you make the two-tone look so good?

We spend a lot of time finding the best areas to add a contrasting colour to, as there’s a few different ways it could be done. We try to find a natural contour line that reflects light in the right way – the gloss black vinyl then begins at this point and is wrapped to cover the specific section we want to contrast.

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

This is one of the best projects i’ve worked on, the colour change from orange to White/Black was a huge transformation and it was really satisfying to stand back and look at the amazing result. See the full case study of this project here.

Range Rover Sport: SVR

Range Rover Sport SVR – The Ultimate Sports SUV

There’s something to be said about a vehicle which combines two things that usually sit at opposite ends of the spectrum of the car world; A large, high-up offroading vehicle and high speed performance that attains you a 8 minute, 14 second lap of the Nurburgring.

The Range Rover Sport SVR was released in 2014 and offers a 5.0 litre Supercharged V8 engine which allows this 2,100kg vehicle to propel from zero to sixty-two in only 4.7 seconds!

This mammoth of a vehicle is fitted with high performance in mind in every aspect, including harder sports suspension which enabled it to get that Nurburgring time, and some of the biggest brake discs you’ve ever seen on a road going vehicle.

We wrapped this Range Rover earlier this year in Satin Pearl White, whilst maintaining the gloss black pillars and roof; giving it a nice two-tone look and a unique colour on a vehicle of this nature.

In addition to the improved performance, the SVR model also features a redesigned front bumper with large air dams, the body sits lower, the alloy wheels are larger and the wheel arches are wider thanks to the bulging arch trims; giving the vehicle a more aggressive look.
