Car Wraps

Sun Jun 12, 2011 6:50 pm

The local power company put a vinyl strip on their Leaf. It looks pretty good.

I should have closed the door so you could see more.
Has anyone else modified the external appearance?

I had been thinking about personalizing my LEAF (when I get it--presuming this month). My friend just moved to Colorado, and his print house in Orange County made them--would have been produced at cost for me, so now, it is less of an idea.... But was thinking, runs on Solar Energy, stuff like that...

I think it is a great idea, allowing one to improve on the eco theme is a personal way... The nice thing about a wrap is it can be taken off when you tire of it... :-)

Here's an overview of the transformation of my LEAF from white to two-tone

looks okay, I'm sure you have it planned but headlights needs some black housing, and tail-lights some tinting to complete the look imo. And I'm sure your waiting for someone to make springs/coilovers so you can lower it too.

leafnode, that looks great. I saw your car in the Revenge event video. Is that a paint job or a wrap? It really makes the curve lines pop. They are one of the Leaf's best features.

Leafnode looks good. I will definetly be getting black 5 spoke rims on my white LEAF they look nice and hopefully lose some wait. How much does a wrap job like that cost? Wonder how it would look completely wrapped in satin black?

I think it looks very sharp. Did you paint the wheels?
