When comparing paint vs. vinyl, it's important to remember that the main point of using vinyl to change your car’s appearance, is that it’s reversible if you want to make any changes in the future. Paint changes cost $3,000-$10,000+ depending on the color, paint shop, and quality of the paints. Along with a much more affordable price tag comes many benefits that paint cannot offer. Wrap offers a more affordable price along with endless colors and finishes. Although some people like the customization of wrapping their vehicles, a common misconception is that car wraps are meant to fix your paint. You need good paint to start with. Any imperfections in your paint will show through the wrap, especially those of a textured nature. This doesn't mean your paint needs to be show-quality to accept a wrap but it does however need to be healthy, with a strong clear coat and no deep scratches, dents, corrosion or other roughness.
