Default Let me rephrase

"Issue" was a poor choice of wording on my part. I just want to know if you wrap those areas or leave them unwrapped like the spars? I am 100% sold and will wrap my aircraft...I'm IN for the wrap mafia.

I just want to know if I'll need to paint those areas on the flight controls and flaps, or do you wrap them too?

Yes,

Prime or paint them. We work in that area, but only to a degree.

"Wrap Mafia"!!!! Once you are in... You'll never leave!

I'm sold on the wrap, but unfortunately i'm not going to fly diagonally across the country to do it (Vancouver, BC to Florida). When you have a satellite office in Seattle let me know.

Seattle and Phoenix are our current areas of focus as we build out our network.

AircraftWraps is already in place! We started this process months ago. Our network of "Aviation" qualified installers will come to your hangar.

We provide 2 options for the "Distant-Places" Wrap:

1. We can fly a "Director" to your location and supervise your install during the entire process to include disassembly and reassembly. Price varies based on travel and hotel cost... MUCH cheaper then owners flying their RV here and roundtrip airfare to Florida!

2. Pilot/Owner Assisted Wrap:We come to you. The pilot/owner signs a NDA regarding our process and becomes a "AircraftWraps Director" for his own aircraft. Pilot/Owner will handle disassembly and reassembly. Our qualified installers will receive ALL direction from AircraftWraps regarding install and required process to AircraftWraps Aviation Installation Standards. The owner will not be charged for any travel or Hotel expense. His involvement and assistance with aircraft hardware specifics will be compensated through a reduced AircraftWraps price.

Again... WE COME TO YOU!

Think about having your plane never leave your hangar and being completed within the week. Zero 100LL cost to the AW client! The saving for our customers will be staggering!

AircraftWraps is the only company offering this service. With environmental concerns over painting products, it's just not an option for that system of aircraft color scheme.

Option 2 was created after MANY of our pilot/builders/owners requested to be involved in the process. We developed this "Distant-Places" wrap program in an effort to involve our clients in their wrap (as requested). We believe this program allows our clients to be involved while protecting the hard earned flight testing data and our install process procedures.

Snowflake,

When would you like us at your Hangar Door!? Your location is prime installation summer weather climate!

Our Phoenix installation... see you in a few months

Air-conditioned/climate-controlled Hangar (Don of Texas), we'll even bring coffee and donuts!

Default Long-term perspective on vinyl?

I'm mulling over exterior options, and found this post.
It's 6 years on- how is the vinyl wrap holding up?

Thx

You would think in 6 years we would be hearing more about this. I got a local quote a month ago from a wrapping outfit that has NOT done a plane. They quoted $12,000. VIrtually identical to a nearby aircraft painter to paint in three color imron. Mine is polished so no paint to remove except fiberglass parts.

How about it OP, is the vinyl holding up?

Oops, I just googled aircraftwraps.com and it appears they are kaput!

I suspect it’s so easy for a home builder to wrap for themselves, there’s little money in it for the pro’s. My self-serve wrap is five years old now, 250+ flight hours and holding up well. The plane is always hangared. I would say the Canadian cold winter flying may be the hardest on it as it gets brittle with extreme cold temps. I avoid flying in the rain so maybe that helps too.

Not sure how to post a picture here anymore. Can anyone tell me how the new VAF picture posting procedure (VAFPPP works? A quick search didn’t yield anything useful.

Bevan:

Bottom Line: your picture(s) must be hosted on another site, then you can embed the link to the site here on VAF.

No, you donít need external photo anymore.
Just use the attach file feature when you post. See pic.
