Vinyl Wrapping a Car

Hey guys, I have been quoted $700 for a respray of my rear bump and rear driver side fender due to some paint damages from the previous owner. With that amount of money, it got me thinking about just doing a vinyl wrap since I get to choose my favorite color- matte red. Gonna end up spending a lot more, but shes gonna get a huge makeover. Anyone have experience with vinyl wrapping their car? Thoughts and suggestions? Thanks!

Ive wrapped a sportbike.

Would do a car or bike again but it would have to be a camo pattern like the crazy arctic camo on lambos etc so it hides imperfections. material cost is 4-700$ for the car

What do you mean by imperfections? On the wrap? Also, how much do you think would it cost for a full wrap? Thanks!

Yeah it's absurd the profits and labor involved for a shop to wrap. I always always quoted 4-6k in south Florida so I did it myself on a race bike first which as it turns out was a of 10x harder due to all the crazy shapes.

Yes I was talking about imperfections in the wrap due to amateur application. You can totally make a camo or pattern job come out "perfect" tho. But regular colors I wouldn't do myself h less it was easy shapes like an m3
