I had my 2015 Z06 wrapped in a color change vinyl and was very pleased with the outcome. My new ZR1 (#862) is currently getting wrapped in Expel plus and once cured will also get a color wrap - expecting it to be completed in about a week.

If I you don't mind what does it cost to wrap a ZR1 in EXPEL the entire car? I have one on order just trying to get an idea of the cost.

My estimate was north of $6k (worst case), but will have actual price when completed. My Z06 ran about $3.2k for partial when I had it done in 2015. My ZR1 will be my first complete paint protection coverage but the third time Iíve had a corvette wrapped with PPF.

Wash like any other vehicle surface although 90% of the time (with my prior wrapped Z06) I used a quality detailer spray and micro fiber towels. My ZR1 is also finished off with Ceramic Pro - which hopefully adds some ease to clean up.



Two more pics, although neither in direct sun light yet (hopefully this weeekend). My intent was to find a matellic gloss wrap as close to lime rock green as possible, while keeping the canopy black. Now its focus on the break in miles and track prep!

Film is Green Black Iridescent by KPMF. Wrap and PPF installed by One Soul Graphics (Livonia Michigan). They also wrapped my 2015 Z06 in Fir Green by Oracle (pic can be found within C7 Z06 thread).

great looking color choice R356. We have been pushing the ceramic pro on all the wraps we do now also. I think you will be very happy with the results. The finish on KPMF is so good. No orange peal look at all like 3M has, KPMF is a little harder to install but we love the final results.

That looks fantastic! They didn't keep this color in production long enough. I would have loved it to stay around one more year minimum, it would have looked so good on the wide body cars (as you have demonstrated)! I would love to see GM introduce a Paint to Sample/1 of 1 program or at the very least add a few more interesting/unique/heritage color options.

Thanks! I wish Lime Rock Green was still an option.
