sounds like a cool idea........you could even have extra rivets in the graphics, or grahics of a hole as if a cannon ball went through it...........

i do have one concern.......and i am no expert by any means.........the trucks at the missuses work place had wraps done........i only seen the one van, and up close you can see issues were it had to span odd places were it left a void..........so my concern would be wraping over top of rivet heads....i believe it would leave a small void around the edge of the heads.......unless you cut out each and every rivet head........:yikes: ..........it coud also bin a crap job done as well........my penny and a half....

Has anyone ever tried wrapping one? I was thinking the anodized blue color could be duplicated with either a high gloss or mirrored material like they wrap cars with. I would think with a heat gun and some skill it could be done and much less than a paint job. If it's doable, I'd wrap the sides and center front deck of my rocket.
