If your car has imperfections in its exterior, like rust holes or peeling paint, then vinyl vehicle wraps should not be your go-to solution, because covering damages with vinyl isn’t really a solution at all.
Rust on a car is like a hole in a wall: you can cover a hole with a painting or a tapestry, but it’s still there and it still jeopardizes the structural integrity of the wall, even if you can’t see it.
Similarly, rust can jeopardize the structural integrity of cars, especially if the rust is severe. If the rust is not advanced, then covering it with vinyl will still trap moisture inside and the rust will surely spread.
Furthermore, vinyl adheres to the paint on vehicles. Therefore, paint must be secure on vehicles for vinyl to properly stick.
The only solution is this: repair the rust. Eliminate the source of rust and remove what is there before you apply vinyl. Sand down the rust, prime the area where the rust is/was, and apply fresh paint or vinyl.
If you’re not sure if your car can be vinyl vehicle wrapped, then don’t hesitate to bring it in to Team Acme, Inc. Our shop is located in Henderson, Nevada, and we’ll let you know if your car is suitable to be wrapped. If it’s not, then we can prepare your vehicle so it is.
Now, don’t get us wrong. Vinyl can successfully disguise rust. However, Team Acme avoids wrapping rusty vehicles with vinyl, because vinyl is not a long-term solution for repairing rust. Plus, the cost to fix the rust will likely be higher once the vinyl comes off. That’s why we advise customers to fix the rust before applying vinyl.
