It sounds like a big commitment to change your gold wrap cars colour. But vinyl wraps have made this a false assumption. Auto wraps can change the appearance of a vehicle for one day, a few months, or several years depending on how the owner feels. You can remove the wrap and return the vehicle to its original appearance when the mood strikes.

Wrapping cars in gold opens up a whole new world of customization possibilities. You can choose from a variety of colors, patterns and textures. The weight of permanent costs or the cost of repainting can be removed so creativity is free to flow.
