    Well today marks a new level of wrapping for me personally.

    I've been working with vinyl for about 6 years and I've been doing complete vehicle wraps for about 3 years now. I have around 150 vehicle wraps under my belt ranging from HHRs to PT Crusiers up to Utility Vans to as big as a couple of Semi Trailers. I've seen a lot of things wrapped but today I completed my first CANE wrap. Thats right, a cane, as in a walking cane. The photos aren't the best, since its such small visible area, but it is basically a skyscaper at night from the water. (I know the photos don't do much just)

    It was a minor challenge but it made me wonder what is the strangest thing people out there have wrapped in vinyl.

    I myself, I have done an Xbox 360 custom skin, and IPod Touch/Iphone skin, Laptop cover skins, and of course this walking cane. I almost did a Gibson Guitar but the owner never came back after we talked about designs and took measurements, to this day I still hope she walks back in so I can add that to my wierd wraps. But I ask you out there in Signs 101 land, what's the strangest, most unique thing you've wrapped. Please, lets see some pictures!

    Thanks!

    Well for me, it's my coro-plane. We just finished the underside of the wings today. The laminate is real easy to work with if you don't mind a few wrinkles.

    I have a friend who was in a auto accident a while back and will have to have a leg amputated just below the knee. He wants something colorful for his prostetic leg when he gets it.........

    A mailbox for a movie, 5 of them one of which went to Oprah. Sad part is my customer mis-spelled the production companies name. All 5 had to be redone. Because of the rush these is the only photo's I have

    I agree, going to do final measurements today. It doesn't run at the moment so it has to be trailered to our shop which will be this weekend. Here is a pic of it now...

    There are only 3 built. It is on a vw frame.
