    Hi guys, ive got a signage company in Botswana Southern Africa and ive been doing vehicle branding for the past 5years. One of my clients has asked me to wrap his car using a no name brand Rose Red Chrome vinyl. I have wrapped 80% of the car with out problems but noticed that when the car is parked in the sun, the vinyl on the bonnet starts creasing up :omg:
    Any ideas what i can do to prevent this from happening??
    Regards

    did he supply the vinyl? if so you only supplied the labor. Your warranty ended the moment the car was wrapped.

    Not your problem mate.
    They supplied the material how can you guarantee it?
    Probably this stuff http://carbins.en.alibaba.com/produ...ap_air_bubble_free_quality_1_52_30m_size.html

    I personally wouldn't of undertaken a chrome wrap (because it is so hard to work with and not as conformable as normal wrap) and especially as it was an unbranded vinyl.

    To prevent this from happening use a branded media (that you can supply and guarantee) and possibly sway the customer away from chrome.
