Wrapping is cool and pretty durable. If done right and taken care of can last you a year or so. But to be done professionally would cost you about the same as a paint job. About $2k+ depending on vinyl and the place.

lots of wildly varying opinions here. funny that you say it gets nasty and cant get clean and fades really bad after awhile. my brother inlaw's bed liner still looks new and he uses the crap out of the truck bed. just sprays it out with a pressure washer if it gets nasty and it comes clean. been rhino lined since 2003 and never has been re done. has a few spots where its rubbed through it to the metal but it is a thoroughly used truck soooo yeah

vinyl wrap aint happening

Maybe the mix or quality varied from batch to batch, or I just scrutinize it more :) - who knows. Mine still looked black, it just went to kind of a dry dusty black. I honestly didn't even notice it, but I had a bed box bolted down in place of the rear seat. After a year, I pulled the box to put the seat back in and there was a somewhat noticalbe square where the box had been and the liner out of the sunlight.

Never had a problem with it getting nasty! It was hard as a rock, granted, I never pressure washed it being it was on the inside near all the wiring, but I'd hose it out, and let the water drain through the plug holes. Use one of those big floor scrubbers if the mud was really staying put- it would come clean.

Would look pretty bad probably but you could do it. I've sen it on trucks and jeeps mostly.

Check this stuff out my friend always wanted to paint his Oldsmobile Cutlas with it....probably nearly as tough as Rhino Liner but will look better..its pretty expensive though

For the same cost, you could have a "ok" paint job. The Rhino line WILL fade, unless you clear coat over it with a UV clear coat. Then, you'll have to worry about the clear chipping away from the Rhino.

Most likely, the car isn't even worth the effort. Just spend $100-$150 and Plasti Dip the whole thing ANY color you could imagine. It's not hard. It's easy to fix. It'll look "ok" for most people. And at least you won't cry your eyes out when the first rock chip or whatever screws it up.

Killer paint jobs on daily drivers is a waste of money to me. It's for the Prima Donna types IMO. Keep it ghetto!
