I was also thinking about durability. I'm not sure it would be much less durable than paint but I might get to find out.

I have put camoclad on a flat bottom fishing boat it kind of the same stuff you all are talking about it was really tough stuff but hard to get the camo pattern to line up it's alot like putting up wall paper

I think it would look very cool. Durability might not be there. But if you got a scratch you could just put a Band-Aid piece right over it and blend right back in.

I'm thinking no concave hull shape, just convex. They make some pretty complex turns around cars and I've seen some that look as good or better than paint.

I'm just thinking how good some chromed blue anodized wrap would look and I would think an accurate tint could be obtained that way.

We are getting a small roll in high gloss black at the shop. My son has a black Tahoe and he wants to try the hood. I'm going to watch some you tube videos and then try some over the rivets possibly with a heat gun, not sure yet. I'm thinking the rivets might be an issue but we'll see. A good friend of mine used to do wraps on race cars and trailers but those racers wrote too many bad checks. They then got into fire trucks, very competitive between companies and their gold leaf work is premium. That's all they do now is fire trucks and ambulances. I'm sure he can advise me on the rivets if I need help.

I never thought about wrapping a boat but have thought about wrapping a motor cowling to look like a different yr and/or make motor.
