Wrapping a Rhino
I've been asked a lot of questions over the past few months about wrapping Rhinos and here's a few things to remember about wrapping your Rhinos:
All parts of the ABS plastics can be wrapped except for the textured Fendor flares and the tailgate. The aftermarket doors that Yamaha installed will not work either... BUT, here are a few suggestions, rather than droppin two grand on a paint job:
Vehicle Vinyl will stick well to your smooth plastics
The designs are limitless
If you have smooth fendor flares, they will wrap nicely
We can wrap the rollcage as well
Dash boards will wrap but need to be smooth as well
for around $130, you can buy a smooth tailgate cover and wrap that, versus the rough ABS plastic, stock tailgate. There are also inserts that will fit in the cut-out designs of the doors that can be wrapped and then applied so that the design can carry over to the door. They run around $68.00 for a set.
Reflective lettering and graphics can also be applied relatively cheap and look great when running around in the dunes at night. People will definately see you. Adds a little safety as well.
Pros and cons: Pros... way cheaper than paint and small areas can be repaired or replaced for cheap. We keep your artwork on file so you can simply come in and fix a portion of the wrap if needed. The wrap will last about 3 years if you take care of it and the inks are UV protected, which helps with fading. You can design anything you want from a picture of something ro a custom graphic to be applied.
Cons: Some small areas of the hood are extremely tough to wrap and it is always cheaper if you allow for a few cut lines in the design. This will help the panels remain in place and not allow the heat to lift the vinyl for larger designs. Thats about it for the bad things..
One last helpful hint: It's like getting a tattoo... look and design,look again, and then pick a design and stand by it! It will be there for a while. Removals cost about half of the installation and take twice as long. The can be removed yourself, but require some time and patience. Be unique. Don't go with graphics Kit unless you only have a couple of hundred bucks to spend. If that's the case, we make kits as well and have hundreds of stock images to choose from.
