Several trucks ago I got tboned and just kept the money. Bought a used bed for $400 and my father in law swamped it out. Was same color except had a striped on bottom. A coworker husband worked at a place that did wraps. It was going to be $1500 just to a stripe on bottom. I thought about diy but never got to it. Not sure you said how much of the car you are wrapping but I would start small and do the hood if you can.
How much is diy going to run you compared to pro?
Considerably cheaper. But like all professional services, supplies are but a small part of the cost. Car paint is relatively cheap, but all of the other steps involved make up much of the cost.
I am probably going to wrap a few more goalie sticks and slightly larger items and determine whether or not this isn’t something I want to tackle. I have decided that I really don’t want to wrap the entire car, anyway.
