wrap in glasgow

Hi guys,

Any glasgow (or around the glasgow area) members had their car wrapped? I'm thinking about getting it wrapped, but I would like to see a couple of wrapped cars first.

thanks

I've seen hundreds on google, I wanna see some in the flesh because the ones I've seen so far have been fairly substandard (not gonna mention any companies).

Stuck between satin red or satin blue - still got time to think about it though

There were loads of companies at the Scottish Motor Show claiming to be able to wrap your car some looked terrible. There was one company that I seen had done a great orange wrap on an Impreza will need to have a look back at my pics see if I can spot their name.

Thats why I want to see some first, the wraps I've seen so far have been horrific.

Companies in Scotland I know of

Tint n Wrap
Platinum Polish (they do a spray wrap)
Infinity Wraps
TLC Detailing
Clyde Wraps
Vinyl Car Wraps Scotland
Totally Dynamic

That would be who I would get to do it anyway.

I've heard other companies too like AC13, Yiannimize, are good, but I am gonna get Paul to do it

TLC have only just started wrapping. My friend is getting his GTR wrapped there. But I would rather take it down to PW.

I've heard a lot of great things on this forum about Bristol blue :P

Will,
If your getting the whole car done go to PW. He at least knows what he is doing and how things come apart and go back together. Other companies up here will just be guessing.

You know my feelings on this one.

I'd also so go to PWPro. Ive seen his work and its top class. I wouldnt hesitate to take any of my cars there.

Some things are worth travelling for and Im sure you've heard/read the horrors of just what can go wrong with wrapps from substandard companies or even those who lack the knowledge on how to remove and resinstall parts without causing damage.

Why not get quotes from your local places, then a quote from PWPro, then a quote for transport for the car to be low loaded to Nottingham and back.

What's the price of peace of mind worth?

After getting the above quotes, you'll know

Yeah i know, I'm pretty set on a wrap, but the only wraps I've seen are pretty awful.

Have you done any in Glasgow?

Also stone chips - should I get them repaired or will they be fine?

Willing to pay the extra to get down to PW.

I know places here will be at least 1k, some more and I don't care about it being cheap I would rather it was good lol

not sure how many GTR's we have around glasgow we certainly have a few further up in aberdeen

saying that we are doing kayleigh lowrie's GTR in the new year which is definitely near you

stone chips and scratches showing through depend on two things

the severity and the material going over top

if they don't cover altogether they will certainly be reduced

obviously touching them in and then flatting / shaving them back will make them completely invisible through the wrap

I've both my R35 GT-R's wrapped here in Scotland. My first R35 was wrapped by Totally Dynamic, they did a really good job. Took there time and the finish was superb. Unfortunately they have now ceased trading here in Scotland as the franchise here in Scotland went into administration.
My current GT-R has just been sprayed (dipped) wrapped by the guys at Platinum Polish in Glasgow, had it done in a matt blue. They have done a great job but it's not the same as a vinyl wrap though. Finish is superb as due to them spraying on the wrap you don't need to worry about cut lines etc.
