      Question Roof Vinyl Wrap for Figo

      Hi Folks,

      Wanted to get my Diamond White Figo's ROOF VINYL WRAP. i want glossy finish black vinyl wrapping.

      Location: Bangalore. any suggestion who gonna do decent job. also cost effective. i checked with Indiranagar 3M. it will cost me a bomb!

      I don't want that costlier one. but looking for better material and decent job. also if anybody has done. please provide the costing for the same.

      also dealer / shop location and contact number if there any recommendation. if anybody has done share some pictures as well

      Thanks in advance.


      Regards
      Dev

      whats the purpose of this? if it is cosmetic it really looks so fugly. In bangalore i can see every 3rd car with this vinyl shit on bonnet or roof? though to each its own. Technical aspects: Already we are tortured with ban on sun films, why do u want to install shit on your car which absorbs nothing but heat

      I have a question - What is the legal angle on this?

      How do they view full sticker jobs (when the entire colour of the car is changed) - anybody have a clue?

      A paint Color change means you have to endorse it on the RC book.

      For a Vinnyl wrap the law is very grey as it is not a permanent coating and is removable. We have had cars wrapped in vinnyl wraps for promos/advertising and the rc books were not endorsed. Cops have stopped the cars/buses also but never asked about the vinnyl wraps. there were only concerned about any extensions like canisters ( take example of the red bull car which had a redbull can on top) and whether the local RTO had approved it.

      I recently got my car's roof wrapped in white vinyl (has more thickness than the usual vinyl and also has a CF finish). More than the aesthetics, I wanted something which would reduce the heat from the roof when parked in sunlight and thankfully, it works. I ordered the vinyl from e-bay and costed me around 1.5k + 500 bucks for installation.

      I do agree Lazybrain! can see a lot. also absorbs heat.
      i felt trying out for cosmetic looks only! nothing more. anyway its not painting, anytime we can remove it of that's the advantage.

      White Vinyl sriharsha would be nice if my car having different color other than white body! I have seen so many blues and reds wrapped with white Vinyl on top and on spoilers. it really looks nice. but unfortunately mine is white and i have to get it on Black now in dilemma as people refereed heat absorb!

      i guess sriharsha & fellow members gave me much better opinion indeed.

      Below source was my ideal way of doing it.
      hope i can cancel full vinyl rapping and do a stripe line as below picture indicated on VV Polo
