Has anyone had their hardtop wrapped?

George,
That picture looks like it came off an old Fifth Dimension album. "This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius....Aquarius"

It's Asian, definitely not the age of Aquarius. I'm from that time, and still live in that area.

I have a cople of "Hawaiian" shirts with similar motifs.

We wrapped our ITE enduro car back before plasti-dip became big and it held up well. Whole roll was ~$300 back then. Why not shoot it w/ plasi-dip in the driveway? It'll come out cheaper and yuo can always peel it off if you don't like it. I'd say $155 isn't bad as a top that small would be a pain to wrap.

I have tried black PlastiDip on my Snugtop. I just used rattle cans but have not been too happy with the result. I peeled and reapplied it again, but also came out with waves representing my spray swaths. The Snugtop has a fake vinyl pebble texture to it, so the effect looks a lot like a vinyl top, but I'm not real happy with it. It's also hard to clean.

What about buying it in a quart and spray or roll it on? Roller will definitely give some texture. I rolled over a vinyl top once and it looked pretty good.


How 'bout dis?

I've been considering putting just the Union Jack on mine. Not sure it can be done for just the top of the top and if the top finish has a pebble grain, but there are a lot of shops around here that do it. Probably stop in some time and show them.

George, That car in the picture really gets your attention,; Your eyes fix on it, sort of like a bad toupee.
