    Anyone do a vinyl wrap on their prius?

    How much do they normally cost? How do you design a graphic or color scheme? If the wrap goes over the windows can you still see out of them and avoid tinting the windows? How long does the vinyl last?

    I am thinking of getting it to protect from rock chips, get a lighter color on the top that would fade darker near the bottom and cover the windows to look cool but also keep the car cooler for the dog.

    Thoughts???

    This guy does the wraps here in NC and does AMAZING work....He did his own personal Mercedes in a flat white (and a Mini Cooper in flat orange) that looks super cool. What you're saying makes sense, wrap the car when you get it new and it is perfectly preserved. I believe he told me a wrap runs 4k and up.....

    How long will it last?
    Even the 3M clear bra in severe weather should be only few years, no more than 5.
    Worth it for several thousands $?
