Deep-Shine Detail - Range Rover Sport Full Wrap - Lincolnshire Wrapping

This Range Rover Sport came into us pretty much completely standard, the owner wanted to give the Range Rover a presence and had a rough vision of what he wanted to achieve so we worked with that the best we could.

First things first was to pick a colour this is the first hurdle for the customer as when the large selection of colour books come out its not an easy decision, a few options were short listed and finally 3M 1080 Dark Matte Grey was selected

An Arden body kit was sourced, this consisted of arch extensions, front bumper extension, rear bumper and door sill panels it had been previously badly fitted and in all honesty was rough, the replacement 22" wheels were also screaming for a refurb, so all was sent to Matt @ Ultimate Car Care. The kit was tidied up and prepared to the high standard we require so it could be wrapped to achieve a uniform finish and the wheels were finished in a Matte Bronze

Due to the depth of the rear arches the rear wheels have been brought out 50mm each side. A pair of Arden Side bars were powder coated in Satin Black and fitted

Here is the car as it stood when dropped off.

The Range Rover received a thorough wash process before being moved inside where it was fully clayed to unsure no unwanted surface contaminates were present. once fully cleansed the car was stripped down in readiness for wrapping.

The 3M 1080 Matte Dark Grey begins to be laid.

The first stage of the front bumper was to wrap the original which once fully stripped was refitted to aid in wrapping

Once the vinyl was laid the bumper was removed, finished, rebuilt and loosely refitted in preparation to fit and wrap the new extension. The new Honeycomb grille surround was also wrapped.

The front bumper extension roughly fitted to be wrapped

with the honey comb of the grille being gloss black we decided to wrap the corner spats in gloss black just to break up the expanse of matt grey and as we had also decided to wrap the roof in gloss black it all tied in nicely.

With pretty much the standard body completed it was time to get the kit wrapped.

Ready and waiting

Back bumper loosely fitted. at this point there was a lot of head scratching on the best way to approach this, due to its complex shape it was inevitable there was to be some joins as to not work/stretch the vinyl past its capabilities but with a bit of planning the joins can be disguised in the lines of the bumper giving a good finish and most importantly a finish that lasts.

Spolier completed

Tailgate release button and rubber seal removed, tailgate wrapped and then refitted.

As we worked around the various panels etc where the vinyl had been stretched slightly to conform with recesses etc these areas were post heated and monitored with a laser thermometer to change the memory of the vinyl preventing it from trying to return to its previous state.

Back bumper completed

We then proceeded to get the remainder of the bodykit fitted.

The wheels came back in and the Matte bronze works nicely against the Matte Grey

Everything was refitted along with Arden side bars that we had powder coated in satin black. 50mm spacers were fitted to the rear wheels as it really needed it.

From us the owner is taking it to have the detachable tow bar removed as is well and truly seized on, and also have some exhaust tips fabricated to fill the recesses in the back bumper.


Many Thanks Adi @ Deep-Shine Detail.
