    Ever since we received our first Model S when it was first released, we've been helping clients make their S, X, and 3 truly unique and their own. One of the most popular mods we offer is vinyl wrapping, and especially chrome deleting. Chrome deleting is essentially "deleting" all the chrome that's on the exterior of the car and wrapping it in another color vinyl. The most popular option being matte black for a sportier look!

    Why Vinyl Wrap instead of Paint?

    Vinyl wrap serves as a temporary color change and because of that, it's also not as much as an investment as paint which is permanent. It's a great solution if you want to do something new and fresh without being a major commitment. Paint does look incredibly good though, especially if you're seeking a very specific color that vinyl wrap doesn't offer, like trying to color match another paint color or doing something really custom.

    Why Vinyl Wrap instead of Plasti-Dip?

    Plasti-Dip is great as it can also serve as a temporary color change. It does tend to have more of a rubbery, texture to it, which isn't always what a client wants. We do recommend plasti-dip for very specific purposes that vinyl wraps have a much harder time doing.

    What's the Difference Between Vinyl Wrap and Clearbra/Paint Protection Wrap?

    Vinyl wrapping is perfect for changing a color to something else you like, but it doesn't offer the same benefits as clearbras at all. Clearbras are made to protect and show your paint, so they are "suppose" to be clear (some brands are much clearer than others). Clearbras like ClearGuard Nano do much better against rock chips than vinyl wrapping and offer unique properties like hydrophobicity (water beading), deeper gloss shine, and self-healing. Keep in mind these differences so you know exactly what you want.

    At the end of the day, it can come down to personal needs as we do use all the above and recommend certain services for certain needs. Just pm me if you want more help.

    Hopefully this thread will serve as an idea board for anyone interested!

    I'll start the thread off with a bang! We are grateful to be able to help JW Marriott Houston Downtown with their shuttle X. They wanted to vinyl wrap the entire X in something clean/modern and still be able to act as a moving billboard for their hotel. Now it can be seen downtown driving clients around.
    Besides the vinyl wrap, pictures also show Vossen's HC1 custom, forged wheels specifically made for the Model X.

    Here's another fun project we completed. To compliment the sportiness the client wanted to achieve, we wrapped the front T and the chrome underneath it in our special carbon wrap that looks very realistic compared to the typical carbon fiber wraps everyone else uses.
    Other awesome mods are the Prior Design body kit, ClearGuard Nano, Photosync window film, and Vossen Forged wheels.

    If you're interested in any of these mods, pm me.

    how much would it cost to wrap a model 3?
    is there a finite selection of color and finishes, if so how can these be viewed?

    Matte black is the perfect option to make your Tesla a little bit sportier by hiding the chrome! DSC07783.JPG DSC07784.JPG

    Our client returned for a chrome delete on the S! We paint protected the entire front end, and now we're making the whole car sportier. Here's some progress shots of us wrapping the mirrors and door handles. Some installers only wrap the "face" of the door handles. We wrap through.

    We offer different levels of chrome delete packages for S/X, pm me for more details.

    I've gotten PMs asking about gloss black for the window trims. Gloss black is nice, but anything gloss will draw attention to the trim, as long as that's your goal. DSC08227.JPG DSC08228.JPG DSC08229.JPG

    Satin black wrapped Model 3 and a satin black accented red Model 3. The red one will eventually get wrapped entirely all satin black as well. But left alone as is, the satin black adds a nice touch of sportiness.

    Here's a blue Model 3 that wants matte black for his chrome delete. Definitely the color to go with to add that touch of sportiness. DSC09522.JPG DSC09531.JPG DSC09533.JPG

    Really love how this one turned out. The matte black compliments any color car and just instantly makes it look a little sportier.

    Some in progress shots of a Model 3 we're wrapping. Only a couple of panels left before the whole car is a different color! DSC00759.JPG DSC00761.JPG

    A common question I get a lot about vinyl wrapping is
    How long does it last?

    If only there was a simple answer! Vinyl is meant to be temporary, so one should think of it as such. Weather and environment play a huge part in it as well. Maintenance plays a big part as well i.e. cleaning off dirt, bird poop, bugs, etc. will help keep the look of the vinyl looking new a lot longer. So there's too many variables to give a solid answer, but a range can be around months to years.

    This is a black Model S was done several months back and has held up very well. Took some quick pictures so excuse the outside dust specks. Client does regularly clean his car and it is daily driven.

    EVSgo's Model 3 we wrapped entirely. We added white stripes to give it some accent along with Vossen Wheels.

    This Model 3 is for rent for anyone in the Houston area! Rent it for the week, weekend, or just a day! PM for details.

    Something a little different! Brushed black for a Model S chrome delete. Will post more pictures as we progress.

    This is a nice little change from matte black and gives you a little brushed texture detail.

    Brand new Model 3 Performance arrived. We're working on full Photosync film, Clearguard Nano, chrome deletion, and center console wrap.

    I'm convinced that brushed black is the way to go for the center console. So modern and sophisticated.
