    Hi Guys,
    I got bored again so decided to vinyl wrap my car. I wanted an new age urban camouflage look, but also wanted it to be subtle as it's my daily driver at times. So I invented my own New age 'stealth' urban camouflage design using a combination of Matt, Satin and Gloss black finishes. I bought some satin and Matt 3M 1080 vinyl, did a couple designs on paper and went for it. I'm pleased with the results. Let me know your thoughts....

    Bills only just finished having that built. Very nice it is too!

    I can't really comment either Bill as I'd like to see it in the flesh. Looks incredible under those lights

    I think it looks a bit cheap and lowers the tone of what is a premium brand in Volvo.

    Maybe it'd work on an Impreza or Evo....

    Another punter falling for the 'premium' nonsense in Volvo's curent PR where every press release has the phrase ' Volvo, the premium car manufacturer' repeated to the point it is pretty damn tedious.

    Concentrate on making some stuff that garners the respect they despairingly want and the world may see them that way. Downside is it is a chinese product.... or heading very much that way, and is being rapidly caught up by the likes of Kia, Ford, Peugeot/Citroen and others. None to difficult to match those brands foolishly seen as premium...... taste is important and Volvo have historically not shown that when they have in the past made the wrong design choices and ended up looking quite vulgar. Think P*......

    The car looks pretty good to me and in no way lowers the tone.... job well done.

    'Premium' is a very subjective term.

    If you were to sit in a P2 R then a Kia, Ford,Pug, Citroen - I'm sure most would consider the Volvo to be premium.

    I think the latest models coming out from Volvo are stunning, the design world is certainly taking note.

    Back to the topic at hand, any other opinions on this 'camo wrap' ?

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I’ve attached an inspirational image/link of an RS7 which inspired my design, it looks great on what could be deemed as being a premium car.
    Good vinyl wrapping is key to making any car look good. Poor quality vinyl and poor execution will make any premium car look naff.

    Over the moon. I’ve not got a bad word to say about the product. Fidgety to fit, but manageable for someone with basic skills and a dremel type of device.
    Just be careful you don’t damage the sides of the centre console where the paint can chip easily.
    I think Harvey has one fitted too...
