Sorry for my ignorance, but why would you wrap your truck in foil?

I"m guessing he means vinyl wrap and is looking for the approximate square feet of the defender 90 body.

Exactly. I want to use 3M vinyl wrap. You can wrap your own prints or camos if you want.

I dont think the Defender's body is going to like the wrap. Rivets, the concave ridge on the doors and rear fender area, the seem on the front wings. I don't think a 100% wrap will work, maybe graphics but not a wrap.

you can do it just fine...... just budget for paint. once you rip off the vinyl your paint will come too. =)

The surface area is roughly 216 square feet. This includes all glass.

I had to look up Christo, but after I did, Bill's comment got me laughing...and gave me an idea.

I had two 108 sq. foot painting drop cloths and found that two of them almost perfectly drape over the bodywork of a 90, plus a little extra.

Voila, a perfectly reasonable estimate of 216 square feet.
