Red Satin Chrome wrap on lotus elise

The original color was ardent red and wanted to take it a step further . I'm pretty ecstatic with how it turned out . Also had an upholstery shop custom build seats .

The wrap and the seats look awesone.

love the seats, and the red satin looks great. I'm also not a huge fan of the lettering.

Agree on the lettering, sometimes less is more.

The wing is a bit much, unless you really need it for tracking. Aesthetically I've never been a fan of big wings.

The color is great though. Not what I expected when I clicked on the thread.

Here are several pictures of it in direct sunlight and shade . It's interesting to see it shift color tones .

Agreed. I've never been a fan of blacked out tails. But the wrap and seats look great.

Would you mind sharing how much you paid for the wrap and the seat upholstery?

Sure. Wrap was 3000. Originally quoted low 4's but came down on price when he figured it would get a lot of attention and business through word of mouth .
Seats were 600 and the guy added a lot of cushion to really make it confortable.

Thanks for sharing. It is hard to believe what can be done with wrapping. very nice.
Love the seats. I will take the opposite view and say I like the wing and lettering.
I have the same wing But regardless of anyone's opinion, it is your ride and have fun with it.

Thanks. It's all preference and it's amazing what they can do with wraps. To get that color it's dual layer of silver chrome with red satin over it Vvivid is the only reputable company I could find that makes that wrap without having to do two separate layers .I'll show a before picture for comparison . Honestly, I originally was going to do different lettering but I just let them run with it and it worked out . I've tracked it some but just like the larger wings too .both shops are out of middle Tennessee if anybody wants to work with either of them can always pm me .

Love the wrap! It looks awesome, and so do the seats. I just don't think the tail lights and lettering fit with the car. But it's your car, and if you like it, that is all that matters!

Also, we need good pictures taken of this thing so we can see the color of the wrap better!
