    Come on now, someone has to know of a good video out there. I'm more worried about install myself, but design would be excellent!

    Go to a class. Videos will show the basics.

    If design is what your main concern is then I would recommend some training videos on photoshop and illustrator or corel (I recommend photoshop and Illy) and do a serch on the forum for wraps search for K6 he has given some great info on scaling and what not in photoshop and then get some magazines that show wraped cars check out some of the custom car mags the designs maybe paint but you could do it with a wrap.

    Good luck.

    Go to a class. A video won't tell you everything you need to know and it won't answer you when you have questions. You really need hands-on experience before tackleing a "for real" job. I watched the Oracal video and thought, "Hey! That's easy!" then I went to a class. Not as easy as they make it look on the video. And in a class, they go over the different types of materials and you'll get alot of free samples. Well worth the money.

    Or find someone that's done it and get them to show you.

    Try to attend an Oracal Wrap academy class. Best bet. It won't help a great deal in designing, but deals with some peripheral issues you'll need to know.

    A video doesn't show you squat compared to goin' to a class.
