Learn to vinyl wrap your automobile and achieve professional results! Wrapping a vehicle in vinyl is a fairly modern concept. In the mid-1990s, German taxis were wrapped to preserve paint. NASCAR followed suit by wrapping its race cars as more primary sponsors came into the sport, which forged a need for quick turnaround times because paint was slow to dry. As vinyl costs decreased, the private sector began to emulate these practices, which created the vinyl-wrapped automobile option that is now available for anyone.
