    I have used Camo clad vinyl on some trucks a very good product. Lost most pics with old phone but found couple.

    There's a guy from Dallas doing these that Hunts here in Seymour I met probably three or four years ago.

    I had some serious doubts about this process and having looked at probably two or three dozen vehicles they've done over the span of years I'm really impressed.

    Some of these are ranch/hunting rigs that get treated really bad with lots and lots of rocks and mesquite to scratch them up and puncture the wrap and I have yet to see one peeling or bubbling like a lot of the earlier other similar products that were on the market ten/fifteen years ago.

    It's probably not a bad option especially for a truck or other vehicle that's in desperate need of paint anyhow.

    I am with WildRose. I think it is a great idea. Ask the gentlemen that fish for a living. They cover their brand new rigs with vinyl( boat and truck). Great opportunity for them to show off their sponsors. I have seen a lot of these and they look great. However, no doubt they were professionally done. I have a friend who bought a sponsored Ranger boat from a pro. The vinyl was outstanding protection. The boat looked showroom new when he peeled it off.

    That's something I've wondered about. It seems like a much tougher vinyl than I'd seen years ago when some of the do it yourself kits came out.

    Those looked ok but they seemed to scratch and then moisture would get under them and they'd peel away.

    These though I've never seen any of that problem with and if they can stand up to mesquite it's got to be a heck of a product.

    It looks to me like the use some sort of adhesive to seal the edges and then as I understand it it's a heat shrink application and the heat activates an adhesive as well.

    For the cost it would probably pay for itself when it comes time for resale or the end of a lease because as you say, "Show Room New" underneath.

    If I ever buy a new "New Truck" I'll probably consider it hard.
