Will a Wrap Completely Cover the Existing Color of My Vehicle?

When it comes to vehicle wrapping, this question about coverage is very common. After all, this helps people create a good mental picture of the final product. So, will a wrap completely cover the existing color of your vehicle? Yes and no. We will wrap almost the entire vehicle, but there are some areas of a vehicle which simply do not make sense to wrap.
Why Would a Wrap Not Completely Cover my Vehicle?
First off, at the end of the day, we could wrap the entire surface of your vehicle. Most every shop has this ability. Common practice is to wrap about 98% of the vehicle and skip some troublesome areas. These areas include parts like hinges which wraps will not adhere well to or areas which require us to remove parts of the vehicle.
Can I Still Get my Vehicle Completely Covered?
Yes, you can. Here’s the thing though; it’s going to cost more and usually leads to some part of the wrap failing. Usually, once we explain this to our customers, we never have anyone tell us to wrap it anyways. If we were to wrap these things, it would take the project a lot longer—which means the project will cost more—and it can lead to pieces of the wrap prematurely failing.
Advertising Wraps vs Color Changes
It is also important to note that what we’re talking about here applies mostly to advertising wraps. What is the difference between an advertising wrap and a color change wrap? An advertising wrap is a wrap a business owner gets for their vehicle. Commonly, their goals are longevity, quality, and affordability. So not wrapping smaller areas like—door jams or right up against hinges—is generally not a big deal. With a color change wrap, those areas would be covered as that’s the installation is about aesthetics first.
What is a Reasonable Amount of Coverage for a Vehicle Wrap?
We commonly tell people 98% of your vehicle will be covered. Really, the amount of your vehicle which isn’t going to be covered is so small it’s hard to even notice. In fact, the vehicle wrap’s design itself commonly incorporates these areas into the design—so it is really hard to notice. We simply want to just be fully transparent with our clients so their every expectation is met.

In August of 2013, we were contacted by Ben Armstrong to update the car wrap on their Chevy HHR since the old wrap was in need of repair. Ben also had a step van that needed to have graphics added to it that were consistent with the car. Both items needed to be wrapped in time for Dragon Con, the world's largest fantasy/Science Fiction convention, held annually in Atlanta, GA, on Labor Day weekend.
This video shows the condition the HHR was in when it arrived and its transformation, as well as the addition of graphics to the step van.

A car wrap involves the application of specialty vehicle vinyl that we apply to every panel of your car: the hood, mirrors, doors, grille, fenders, roof, rocker panels, decklid, and bumper covers. A wrap covers every square inch of the body. Your factory paint will be completely covered up on your vehicle’s exterior with one of our Vehicle vinyl wrap colors.
Alternatively, a vinyl wrap could cover a portion of your car, truck, van, SUV, or other vehicle. It could be just a hood wrap, for example. Or a roof wrap. Or some accents on your mirrors and bumpers with a vinyl wrap color that complements your factory paint.
Vinyl car wraps can be a single solid color, or can be 2-tone or even 3-or-4-tone, meaning you could have a primary color and one or more accent colors to set off specific portions of your vehicle.
