Car Wrapping??

Whats your thoughts on Car Wrapping It seems like a pretty good idea to me. There seems to be endless benefits and hardly no downfalls. However i have heard of some Cowboy wrappers who do it in their Garage and do a bodge-job. Might get my car wrapped in a nice orange/yellow like the new Shelby ST. I did find this company might go and get it wrapped

You could also look into Plastidip. It's kind of like a rubberized spraypaint, it goes on just like paint, but feels more like rubber or plastic when on. It can be peeled away pretty easily, and will protect the paint while giving the car a unique color. Usually people do it just to wheels or badges or trim pieces, but it can be applied to the entire car and can look quite nice if done right. Look up dipyourcar.com for example of folks doing the entire car.

Here's a good one in a color similar to what you want:
