The Vehicle Wrapping Process
Your car is essentially an extension of you; a neat, well kept car exterior shows people you’re professional and care about your image. However, everything on the roads from the other drivers to the pebbles to the sun are constantly eating away at your paint job and your car’s image. Preemptively protect your car with a highly customizable vinyl wrap from the professionals at Zach Wraps! Read about our meticulous wrapping process below and get connected with us today to get your car customized and protected!
Properly prepare and plan for the process of wrapping the car
Decontaminate and clean the outside of the car
For the best results, all debris, no matter the size, must be removed from the car’s surface to allow the vinyl to closely hug the paint. This step is extremely important to the final product; any cut corners in this step will be noticed later in the form of bumps and inconsistencies. To ensure all debris is removed, we utilize the following:
- Foam Baths
- Clay Bars
- Isopropyl Alcohol
Blow off any excess water and dry the vehicle
While drying, the car is disassembled at certain areas to ensure a tight wrap across the entire car
To get the clean and crisp looking car wrap, some car features need to be temporarily removed. You need a professional to make sure that this step isn’t skipped and that the car can be properly put back together afterwards. The parts disassembled include:
- Door handles
- Sometimes bumpers, depending on the car and the wrap selected.
Take measurements and always leave a little extra vinyl
You can always cut away excess vinyl, but if you don’t have enough, there are major problems. We don’t cut corners here and our wraps look fantastic because of this.
Double check the area is clean, wipe down with 99% isopropyl alcohol, and apply the film
Yes, the cleanliness of the car’s surface prior to applying the film is that important to us. Because we strive to provide the best wrapping job possible, this step must be taken seriously.
Squeegee out any air and cut the film to the correct size
This step presses the vinyl onto the car and begins to show the final product. All cuts must be precise and made with extreme caution to prevent any cutting to the vehicle below while also making sure there is enough vinyl to cover the surface. A steady hand and experience is a must for the best results.
Once cut, tuck in all edges to seal them in while applying heat for a uniform, clean seal
Using a heat gun, the wrap is closely sealed to the surface of the car, preventing any peeling. All corners of the car are gone over to eliminate any blemishes and to create the uniform appearance that our professional car wraps have.
The wrapping process takes between 5 to 7 days depending on the size of the vehicle
To create the best product, time is needed to ensure the surfaces are clean, all air is squeezed out, and each corner is properly sealed. Large vehicles will require more time and attention to achieve the final product.
