Vinyl Wrap Union Jack on Exige

I've been looking for a video from the Discovery Channel show "How It's Made". The video showed a Lotus Exige being vinyl wrapped with the car being done up in the Union Jack.

Does anyone have it? Anyone have a link to it?

Thanks.

The video is on this page:

But Discovery Channel did 10+ minutes on it. I'd like to find that video.

Looks like it will be on the Science Channel on March 9th. This link shows that it was from Season 5, episode 18.

Thanks, Alex. That is a huge help. I'm off to go set the DVR.

There's a local shop that we use to do vinyl wraps for some of our products and I happened to see a matte black Ferrari F430 being worked on in the shop. I forgot to ask how much though since I was too busy staring at it...

Last month did a vinyl wrap, the rear roll bar cover and frame (have a soft top) ran $250. Of course you'll have to add in the art work and printing of it on top of that (went with a matte black).

Inquiry I made a few months ago was close to $10K to get it done right, mostly labor because of the complicated shape of the car.

Now, understand, I have no idea how to actually shop for someone to do this, so my sample of 'one' vendor may be really off the mark.

Just sharing for what it's worth.

It is perfect for a race car but too much for a street driven car.

There was my Chrome Orange, a black, yellow, & grey S2 Exige all out the front and the 'wrap' no way on this earth were they going to shift the 'wrap' whilst it was parked next to any of the others!

I think the union Jack Lotus looks better than a chrome orange Lotus.

Got It!

Glad I set the DVR last week because I would have forgotten all about recording this. Anyway - I got it!

I'll try to transfer it to my computer from the DVR later (never done it before). If I am successful, I'll upload it to YouTube and link it here.

Very cool to have a HD copy of it now. Thanks again!
