Bumping an old thread, I know..

Here are a few links to a wrapped 110 in the UK. I'm not terrible interested in wrapping the exterior, but wonder if it would hold up if used to 'wrap' the interior (floors, seat boxes, cargo area, etc)??

Would it provide a water tight seal against the surfaces, reducing chances of rust? Kind of like a less durable version of spray in bed liner, but easy to clean? Hmmm, thoughts?

P.S. -- Love this guy's Club Logo (on the hood)..

more durable then plastic dip, much harder to apply. I wonder if the heat and the vinyl eventually deteriorate or damage the paint.

I think of stainless steel bits with the vinyl plastic on them, keeps them very fresh and scratch free. would be cool but at 900GBP (like $1800) you're talking about paint job money anyway (provided you don't need bodywork)

Having a dipped MG I can say the plasti-dip is a pretty durable finish. It's been on it for about 10 months and took the chicago winter in stride. That being said I don't think it would hold up well to being on a floor. The wrap will probably fair a bit better but in the end I think you will be disappointed.

Roller it if you're not looking for anything that great. Roller painted my roof and it turned out well. Probably going to do the rest of the body this summer

My other car's a Land Rover
