Glossy White Exterior on this C7 Corvette is Actually a Vinyl Wrap
A vinyl wrap is a great way to alter the look of your car on the cheap, and it also works as a fantastic protectant for the factory paint underneath. The big issue with a wrap though is that you can usually tell the car has been wrapped. That subtle plastic sheen that lets the world know you have a layer of vinyl across your car can certainly be an eye-sore when compared to the radiant gloss of certain factory paints.
But what if you could have a gloss vinyl that looked exactly like paint? Corvette Forum member bradgto posted up some photos of his new C7 stingray in vinyl, and I can’t even tell it’s wrapped. Until I saw the shot of the door jamb where the wrap stops, I thought he might have been joking.
Vinyl wrap is very thin, won’t add much weight to your car, and for the cost of around $3k, it seems like this may be a perfect choice for a lot of new Corvette owners. Some other members have pointed out that the thinness of the film means it won’t protect the car as well as a traditional clear bra will, but I maintain that this is a far better option to just bare and open paint, especially when it looks as good as factory gloss in photos.
