    We are getting ready to partially wrap our shop truck, it's a 2010 Ford Ranger, I had a question regarding the fenders, it has the fenders with the big fake bolt heads on it (it's actually held in with clips) how you most people handle these? do you cut them out or heat and work them in? it seems like it would require too much stretching and be a point for failure!

    The design is attached, Any tips you can give would be very well appreciated, I took the avery wrap class, but this will be my first real world attempt any anything curvy, the design is printed on Avery 1005 ezrs with the 1360 lam.

    wrap over it, and trim the circles out.
    You're over thinking it.

    Well since your new to wraps I would say wrap over them and then see if you can get them to set.

    If it looks bad or you cant get them to stay then trim them out.

    If you have to reprint and reinstall the wrap so what.

    This will help you get some practice and to find out what you can do and what the material you have chosen can do as well.

    Alot of people here hate Avery I have used it many times and find it is very easy to work with and can really stretch if need be (all though not the best thing to do). The only problem with the supercast that I have ever had is it is so thin that if you have to wrap something outside the heat (I am in Florida) will make it very easy to stretch when applying (making panel alignment difficult) but other than that not a bad material at all.
