It is actually not a wrap, it's basically a technique they do to the actual metal part of the body. They take the the metal and do a type of scorring technique to the metal using different type of materials to "ruff" the material

i am actually familiar with a similar technique used with jewelry and art. To do that with a car is absolutely brilliant.

pure unadulterated genius.

i would love to see that in person.

(i would prolly lick it.)


I Love HFD!

Re: Tokyo AUTO SALOON 2011

Heh, yea I would love to see it in person as well. If you go to the "Artis" webpage (I can't find it at the moment I will post back when I do), they have a nice DIY guide on how to do it. I know someone in the works of trying it out though... -_-

Re: Tokyo AUTO SALOON 2011

I've accrued a few more good size paint chips. I suppose I should get going on my tC practice hood so I can do this to the xB

Re: Tokyo AUTO SALOON 2011

i would love to see what you do. someone said that this effect is done by scoring or etching the metal beneath the paint.

it sure is cool.
